Toyota is recalling even some of their Lexus models for the gas pedal problem. They are not sure if its the mats or some module under the hood. Now when your gas sticks think quick put it in neutal and shut it down. Am I the only one who took defensive driving classes when I was 16. They spent more time teaching how to avoid bad situations than they did driving.
Even our Dodges might be at risk for something like this, with the electronic gas pedal instead of mechanical. My first experience with this was an 08 Sebring LTD I leased, I found the gas pedal had a delay it seemed, I had no clue it was electronically controlled, I did know I had the hard time getting the portable hand controls to stays on because the plastic pedal was plastic all the way up, one piece moulded part. It had a curve part on the back I would say for strength which caused the controls to not want to stay in place. Sucked, had to keep tightened them every 100 miles or so. Thank god the brake was flat on the back, it stayed tight. Rush hour on the Gardiner Expressway in Toronto and you can feel your hand contol getting loose, good think my wife could tighten it. We gave up on the way home, we took them off and she drove.
