    I drive a Toyota.

    If the accelerator sticks, I plan to just pop it into neutral, put both of my feet on the brake and push down, and yank on the emergency brake at the same time.

    No big whoop!

    I've got an '07 Avalon. I drive it with the pedal to the floor anyway. No worries.

    9NEWS.com | Denver | Colorado's Online News Leader | Toyota halts U.S. sales of Camry, 7 other models

    The announcement follows a larger recall months earlier of 4.2 million vehicles because of problems with gas pedals becoming trapped under floor mats, causing sudden acceleration. That problem was the cause of several crashes, including some fatalities.

    About 1.7 million vehicles fall under both recalls.

    Damn... Things are Tough are Over...

    By the way, the Part in Question is Apparently from a US Supplier...

    This is why I Drive Hondas.

    :)

    peace...
