    Yep, got it today. Just kind of skimmed over it real fast. Something in there about warranty with the throttle body and throttle realated parts. I will have to actually read it tomorrow and see what it says. I figured it had something to do with not being able to sue Toyota now...since I never took mine to have the floor mats checked and the throttle pedal shaved off.

    I just got two of them in the mail the other day LOL... What's everyone think about the whole situation? I think it's just money hungry people trying to get one over on Toyota... I personally haven't had any issues whats so ever.. Toyota has been a great company since forever and maybe someone or a few people had an incident... I threw mine away!
