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.

The plastic footrest broke off.
cheap plastic part
The left foot rest is secured by one clip on a floor bolt -- bad design!
Replaced foot rest twice already. It just breaks off, and both times while driving... So dangerous!
Unfortunately will have to purchase new part. Toyota should replace for free!
Dead pedal broke off lodged under brake luckily I was able to swipe it away with my foot. Cmon Toyota step up here.
Only think on the vehicle I have ever had a problem with!
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.
The left foot pedal res broke and would not stay on.
left foot rest just fell off.
I was driving and was applying brakes for a emergency stop. I had my left foot on the pad and just snapped This is a bad design, especially for a off road vehicle
