YESTERDAY I WAS DRIVING BACK FROM DROPPING OFF MY SON AT SCHOOL, GETTING ON THE FREEWAY, MY GAS PEDAL WAS ABOUT 1/2 WAY DEPRESSED, THE NEXT THING I KNOW THE GAS PEDAL IS LEAVING MY FOOT AS IF IN CRUISE CONTROL AND FLOORING ITSELF, THE CAR ENGINE IS RACING FULL SPEED, FORTUNATELY I HAD RUN THIS THROUGH MY HEAD BEFORE, AND I WAS COMPETENT ENOUGH TO APPLY THE BRAKES AS HARD AS I COULD, PUT THE CAR IN NEUTRAL AND SAFELY PULL OFF THE FREEWAY AND TURN OFF THE CAR. SO I WAS TOWED INTO TOYOTA, GIVEN A LOANER CAR AND TOLD THAT SOMEONE FROM THE FACTORY WOULD COME OUT TO RUN SOME TESTS. FIRST LET ME STATE, THAT AFTER THIS WAS OVER I DID LOOK DOWN TO SEE IF MY FLOOR MAT WAS A FACTOR IN THIS, BUT ALSO KNOWING THAT THE PEDAL HAD LEFT MY FOOT AND HEADED FOR THE FLOOR, THE FLOOR MAT WAS A GOOD 2 INCHES FROM THE PEDAL. SO THIS MORNING TOYOTA CALLS ME TO SAY THAT THEY HAVE DETERMINED THAT IT INDEED WAS MY FLOOR MAT, NO DOUBTS IN THEIR MINDS ABOUT THAT, SO THEY HAVE GIVEN ME A NEW FLOOR MAT AND TOLD ME MY CAR IS FINE. THERE IS NO DOUBT IN MY MIND THAT THIS IS AN ELECTRICAL PROBLEM, NOT A FLOOR MAT ISSUE.
