Brake problem? Or maybe a faulty head gasket cylinder?

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.
The plastic pegs on the back of the footrest pedal break off and then the pedal is just held in by gravity, and can slide under the other pedals causing an accident.
Same problem. Cheap plastic part broke when bracing my foot on pedal to get keys out of my pocket. WTH!!!
Foot rest fell off at 25,000 miles. Toyota replaced it and it fell off again at 36,000 miles. Toyota will not replace because after warrenty!
Left footrest fell off but not sure if I will replace it due to it falling off again and causing a safety issue
The left foot rest broke of and lodged under the brake pedal. I was able to kick it out with out a problem. I'm not sure I want to replace it...
Same thing happened to me, the pedal is only held on with 3 cheesy little plastic clips. Looking for a new one now...
