    I can't believe Toyota is not addressing thru a recall. This huge safety problem is being reported all over the web!!

    I had the same thing happen. I called toyota direct put in a complaint and recieve a complaint number. If enough people call and report it they will do a recall. And if you have the foor rest replaced and have a claim number with a repair slip they will reimburse you if the recall happens. Even if its a year or two. Its worth calling. If they dont know they cant help you.

    My "dead" pedal (left foot rest pedal) has come off and has broken "connectors" now. This is a serious issue that Toyota needs to make right. This is a serious safety issue as it will become lodged in between the brake/gas pedal.
