    And did the reflash. I told them specifically NOT to shave the pedal last time I was in, even had to sign a waiver, well low and behold, I took it in today for a nasty grinding noise and it came back shaved and reflashed. I gotta say, I'm still irritated about the pedal but the reflash is actually pretty nice. It seems to shift smoother and doesn't have that lurch from first to second anymore.

    Oh, and I found out we have heat shield around the drive shaft that, when loose, makes an awful grinding noise almost like a set of spent brake pads...

    Hey Pugga...I just wanted your opinion about the pedal now that you've had it done?? I need the reflash and have been waiting because I wasn't sure about the pedal shave?? Is it a big difference? Thanks for the help!

    What is the reflash? And isn't the pedal already shaved on the 2010's? My stock carpet floor mats were fastened down and had notes on them saying not to remove them blah blah about the stuck pedal

    They did my pedal after I told them not to. I took it back and they put a new one (old style) back on. I got three free oil changes and tire rotations for my trouble.

    My 2010 which I've had for almost a year...drives like its searching for the right rpm in 3rd, 2nd, 1st gear....not smooth at all. When I stop to back in my driveway...the rpms go up a few hundred before shifting each and every time...not cool

    Who the hell cares about shaving a gas pedal? Why are some many people declining it? They did it to mine and there's no difference in feel.

    I've seen a few threads just like this recently and it makes me wonder what the big deal is.

    stock..for now
    Yeah, got a door speaker repaired...next thing I know I got a gas pedal the size of a tic-tac. But as said before here... I feel no difference (and, I won't be killed by a rogue floormat combined with the inability to shift into neutral).
