Can someone teach Toyota how to make a gas pedal?

Quite honestly, I don't see how you can fock up a gas pedal. Maybe someone here can help them out.

Luckily I wrote off Toyota as CRAP 2 years ago and bought a Mazda 3.

wasnt the gas pedal. it was an all weather floor mat, on top of the regular floor mat, that casued the bedal to get stuck.

not really toyotas fault, but now the have to do dmg control.

also, which it was stuck, the driver called 911 instead of turning the car off, slamming it into nuetral/park, etc.

read up on it a little

If you read the link, it says that it was a different case from the stuck floor mat.

can someone teach bmw to weld a frame correctly?


Narrator: Now, should we initiate a recall? Take the number of vehicles in the field, A, multiply by the probable rate of failure, B, multiply by the average out-of-court settlement, C. A times B times C equals X. If X is less than the cost of a recall, we don't do one.
Woman on plane: Are there a lot of these kinds of accidents?
Narrator: You wouldn't believe.
Woman on plane: Which car company do you work for?
Narrator: A major one.

Subframe. That is pretty basic, right?

All manufacturers have issues.

LOL at the people making fun of the most reliable automaker of the past 10-20 years. BMW is absolute garbage compared to Toyota in terms of reliability. Not even a contest.

I think since I'm a Canadian, I should tell you guys the truth.


The gas pedal is made in Canada.

I don't judge based on reliability, do work myself, but where I do judge Toyota loses the worst

If you are a car enthusiast and want to end this enthusiasm, buy a Toyota or Lexus product - it will kill any love you have for automobiles.

It's more easy to kill with a sword than with a gun.

A sword is more frightening than toy-looking gun like glock.

robbing with a sword is a good thing
