870,000 Toyotas Recalled Due to "Spider Problems"

Almost one million Toyotas. Recalled. Because spiders.

Via CNN:

Sometimes, their webs can create a blockage in a drainage tube coming from the air conditioning condenser. That can cause water to drip down onto an airbag control module, causing a short circuit. That, in turn, could cause the airbag warning light to light up on the dashboard and it could even cause the driver's side airbag to deploy, something that happens with explosive force.

In summary: Spider webs can cause your airbags to deploy unnecessarily. But wait, there's more!

In some cases, there could also be a loss of power-steering force, Toyota (TM) said.

The vehicles involved are model year 2012 and 2013 Camrys, Venzas and Avalons, including hybrid versions of those cars.

That's odd that they mention spiders specifically. Those drainage tubes getting clogged with debris isn't uncommon. Phone Post

The more we develop our technology, the more spiders seek out ways to use it against us. Alas, this is a war we cannot win.

I have no doubts spiders are responsible for the speeding out of control Toyotas as well. Phone Post 3.0

Hopefully they install a "kill it with fire" button as the fix

Next, they'll be IN the airbags.

FUNNY SHIT.......RECENTLY MY AIRCONDITIONER WAS "BROKEN" BECAUSE A FUCKING PINCHER BUG GOT STUCK BETWEEN TWO CONNECTIONS.

Haven't read yet, but could they not be talking about the spider for the fuel delivery system? It seems strange for them to be recalled for bugs.. Phone Post
