1. They're installed by the dealer as part of Toyota's recall program.
    Unintended Acceleration: Use zip tie to secure driver's floor mat to seat frame.
    Engine problems: Introduce a family of sludge-eating chipmunks into the engine bay.

    1. Seriously. This Camry is actually midway through its engine replacement procedure.

    1. Exactly, it's clearly saved the rare Midwestern Walnut chipmunk, and they're trying to show their appreciation.

  2. Rodents under the hood of a car are no fun. I learned the hard way to keep the dog food in a steel trash can. Back when I had my 96 Z-28 sometimes it would make a horrible racket the first time I would go full throttle. A little less racket the second time, then normal. It was wintertime, I was working late, and never really investigated. Until one morning the car wouldn't start at all, turn the key and nothing. The battery wasn't dead. Realized there was dog food all over the engine. Rats had chewed through the wires! I had to have it towed to a garage to be fixed. This happened twice before I got the steel trash can for the dog food on the garage.

    1. I just bought a 2005 F350 fully loaded power everything off of an insurance company for dirt cheap because of rodent damage . All I did was replace some of the wiring harness ( It never chewed on the leather seats just wiring ) and remove the nest with the help of Charley my cat and now I'm driving a sub 100,000 mile truck for $10,000 ( I even had a buddy of mine repaint it for that price )

      1. I could have filed an insurance claim?!? That would have saved me about $700 in repair bills.

  3. I've always been told Econo boxes were powered by Hamsters or Gerbils , is the power to weight ratio of a Chipmunk that much better ?
