I don't remember that but I do remember AUDI was suffer that in late 80's/early90's . The gas and brake pedal were designed too close together. But, I don't think the toyota here has the same problem. I find it very hard to believe it is the floor mat. BUT toyota need to be upfront with it and NHTSA need to get to the end pf it. Remember, you can get killed by one of these problem car even though you don't drive a toyota, you can get hit by one!
