    FFS... I called it. It's a repeat of what happened to Audi in the early 80's.

    I can certainly believe the part about floor mats being installed wrong. Pretty close to half the time I detail a new car, at least one of the floor mats have been put in wrong. By the dealer. :uh:

    I'm talking about brand new cars as in 1-2 days off the dealer's lot.

    Yeah, like the guys at the car wash move the mats to vacuum under them anyway. :rofl:

    Just fucking with you although the guys at my car wash remove and beat the mats clean while vacuuming every time. Then it gets washed. I don't think they ever hook the mats back in correctly.

    I really don't get it either. Do thses people just panic when their gas pedal gets stuck under the floormat?

    i thought from what i read of other toyota threads, the es350 in particular, you cannot shift to neutral over a certain mph
