    due to the faulty pedal? No clue if they've proven that on even one vehicle yet

    The faulty pedal isn't causing the crashes as far as I know.

    Think about it, the pedals are just slow to react if/when they are worn too much.

    The guy that wrecked in Louisville, KY said he was pulling into a parking spot and his car accelerated too quickly and caused him to crash. What was he doing anyway? Flooring the pedal while turning into a parking lot?

    There is a separate recall going on as well with just Camrys. Faulty OR improperly installed floor mats cause the pedal to get jammed. This also affects Lexus ES and IS series. Almost every accident I've seen reported is one of these three.

    The reflash is done on Camrys. Their pedals have to be cut down with a sawzall using a template, part of the floor is modified, and the ECU is reflashed.

    Gov't studies still show evidence that the stuck pedal is not the only cause of unintended acceleration. Toyota would like you to believe otherwise.

    I'm waiting to hear a few months later that it was really the drive-by-wire system, and there'll be another recall. :o

    sorry but this is the 2nd bs answer toyota has tried to use

    "floormats"
    "bad pedal"

    it's something to do with their electronics system.

    The floormats CAN cause the pedal to stick. That's why they're cutting pedals, changing the floormats, and modifying the carpet.

    Happened to a guy I work with.

    You know what he did? Reached the fuck down and pulled the mat back.

    :werd: If it was just floormats, they wouldn't have issued a recall of MILLIONS of vehicles. They'd just issue a warning to remove the fucking floormats.

    yeah, but any idiot can figure out that the accelerator is stuck on a floormat, and just use their goddamned foot to move the fucking thing out of the way before dieing in a fiery crash.

    When the Lexus LX470 first came out my friends Mom was at a house she was selling (Realtor). She put it in R to back out of the driveway and it went forward and she crashed into the garage.

    I don't really pity those people. Die at 120 while on the phone w/ 911, or slap the bitch into neutral, blow the motor, and live. depends on how much the car is worth to you, i guess.

    he didn't really have a chance to get a grasp of the whole situation yet. now why the moron driving didn't think of that before calling 911 is a different story.
