    Just a friendly reminder to people who may have just purchased a new Tacoma at a dealer that didn't take the extra time to install the clips that secure the driver's side floormat to the floor. I was cruising at 55 and went to punch it to pass, and when I took my foot off the pedal, it stayed on the floor! The floor mat had wedged itself between the floor and the pedal and kept it there. Luckily I was on the hiway or I could've been effed up. I've owned my YOCA since January and this is the first time this happened to me. But it would only take one time in the wrong situation...............BLAAAM! I guess if we all drove like Sunday drivers, this wouldn't pose a threat........

    I've heard of that problem with aftermarket matts, thanks for the heads up though.

    They're factory mats.
