    The Taco was just added to the list of vehicles to be re-flashed with a new program that ignores the throttle pedal if the brake is also depressed.

    To me, this and the rear spring fiasco confirm that the intended market of these trucks is suburban idiots who want a tall Camry. :mad:

    If, however, you actually use your truck as a truck, make sure you don't let them re-flash your system the next time you are at the dealership. This takes away half of your offroad tricks, and I find the ability to use both pedals handy. Sometimes, though not often, I like to be able to load in the torque before setting things in motion, like when climbing over a rock, or moving a heavy trailer backwards up a slope.
