    Just a thought...you guys that have been putting off TSB/warranty work might want to get on it sooner rather than later.

    Once a solution is found for the gas pedal recall, you can bet that dealer service centers will be innundated. I would look for non-critical TSB and warranty services to be postponed until the demand for gas pedal recall services stabilizes.

    From what I can find on Wiki, there are about 1200 US Toyota dealers and an additional 200 Lexus dealers. Unless Toyota figures out how to get this work done outside of their dealer service network, thats only 1400 centers for 2.3 million vehicles affected with the sticky pedal assembly. If you consider even distribution, thats 1600+ vehicles per service center to go through.

    If it hasn't happened already, you can probably look for TSB support through Toyota corporate to become difficult to access as well. I wouldn't look for Toyota to talk to your service manager to help you get TSB work done once the gas pedal recall flood starts.
