In light of last year's extensive recalls and "runaway vehicle" issues, is it safe to buy a new Toyota?

I'm in the market for a new car and I've been looking at getting a Toyota Highlander or RAV4. They look like great vehicles and I'm sure one of them would meet my needs well. But I'm still a little unsure about reliability, after all of the recalls last year. Consumer Reports has temporarily rescinded their "Recommend" rating from the two vehicles because of the issue.
What do you guys think? Is it enough of an issue to keep me from purchasing a Toyota? Unfortunately a "wait and see" approach isn't really going to work in this case. We're looking at getting a new vehicle to replace an older car with extensive electrical problems, and we can't really go without a working car for very long.
