    so toyota is asking their supplier CTS that makes the pedal

    that the pedals are wearing out pre-maturely...
    is our gas pedal made in Elkhart, IN by CTS too???

    since it wears out quick... thus leave the pedal open and it would be stick...:confused:

    since my tacoma made in mexico, you guys think I have a better chance that the pedal is not from Indiana...

    I got a letter last week. I'm in Canada though if that makes any difference. The truck was made in Cali

    maybe from rompin' on the throttle too much :burnrubber: :p

    Seriously though, the new recall seems aimed at the pedal assembly wearing out prematurely in rare cases.

    i got a recall in the mail about the floor mat issue but there isn't any issue....there is plenty of space between the mat and the gas pedal....so a recall isn't needed as far as i can see

    I had my wife call the dealer next to my house and they said that my truck was in it, but that the parts would not be out until like may or june which my truck will be out of warranty so they gave me a corporate number to call. My wife tried all day and everytime she got put on hold it would hang up on her. Does any one have a number that I could have her try calling?

    I actually got two letters. One a while ago was for the floor mat ( I have weathertechs anyway) and this recent one is for the pedal. Toyota will contact me with the parts for the pedal arrives in a few months
