    I have had the same issue with my truck, also I had an issue that sometimes randomly I could not get in to first gear at a stop light or stop sign. So far toyota says "transmission" is ok but sounds like its going bad, we will just replace it when it goes out. Problem is I can only get the clutch to do the problems you have described when its really really cold or otherwise its random. Toyota adjusted the pedal but that did nothing, a little trick i found was to keep it in first or second gear when parked over night.

    Had tons on the old Taco's.... new Tundra is pretty stock
    Mine does that too. I believe it's because it's a hydraulic clutch and the oil being cold at startup is thick, therefor creating the drag experienced with the delayed pedal return. My $.02

    First month of ownership... This month I'm removing front air dam, and also Rhino lining the bed.
    This has been addressed on this site before, here, and for my 2 cents I'd say change the fluid to a cold-temp tolerant variety. Not sure what you mean by "cold", but if your definition includes below freezing temps then a fluid change might be the answer.

    My 2010 does this. Clutch pedal is slow and stiff.
    Works fine though, and reminds me to take it a little easier until everything has warmed up.

    My clutch feels very spongy on days colder than 40 degrees. It stays that way looooong after the engine has warmed up to operating temperature. I'd never drive my truck without warming it up at least 5 minutes. It feels really different when cold.

    I plug in my block heater when it gets below 0 C. I noticed the stiff clutch, but since I've been plugging it in, no problem. The block heater however, does nothing for the rough shifting into first gear when it's cold.

    I had this same problem this morning. Clutch sticks until engine is warm. Is there a solution to it? Should I call my dealer. Truck is new and under warranty.

    Six-year-old thread and OP seems to be long gone, but it sounds like his dealer did replace some parts for him. I think it's worth a trip to your dealership if you think it's an issue.
