    Just got my car back from service (oil change and tire rotation) and the 90L (stuck gas pedal)recall.
    The repair of the pedal looks really bad. I am Not happy! I now have a $30,000 car with what looks to be a junkyard modified pedal now! The cuts are not equal on both sides of the pedal in anyway, looks like they rushed it or they gave it to someone who just did not care how it looked.

    As far as I am concerned Toyota really should have replaced the pedals and not looked at a QUICK FIX. This quick fix is very ugly and just does not appeal to me. If you can wait to get it fixed then please do so. I would not buy a new car from them that had a CUT pedal. It just doesnt look right.

      i also had my car brought in for the recall and same thing happened and also my accelerator pedal feels so soft that any sudden bumps or changes on the highway grade causes my foot to press on the gas more the feeling was really different as if there is no resistance encountered when depressing the accelerator pedal and made me feel not to take the car for the recall if that was the thing that will happen to your car

    I just had my 07 Tundra pedal "fixed". It is very soft and what I would call mushy. Very hard to accelerate with control with that much play in the pedal.
