1. traveling at about 45-55 miles per hour, gas pedal sticks. Also, the dealer sold me the car with out a driver floor mat. Since I purchased the car in 2007, I've noticed a gradual erosion of the floor mat beneath my right foot and just below the gas pedal. There is now a hole in the carpet and an indentation in the floor of the car. Also, there is a small toggle type object jutting out from under the carpet just below the gas pedal 2. it occurs every time I drive the car. 3. nothing has been done to correct the failure.

2005 Toyota Highlander, car will accelerate from a dead stop on its own. Change transmission from park to drive and let off brake and car will accelerate without touching gas pedal fast enough to change gears and continue. Have reached a speed of 30 mph before braking. The tachometer does not show that the engine is revving higher than a normal idle when in park changing into drive so it seems like an electronic problem, etc. Issue is intermittent. The car has been to 2 dealers over the time it has been owned and we were told the issue could not be duplicated so nothing could be done. I called the same day this email was sent and was told the same thing by the local Toyota dealership. Well, the recalled gas pedals don't stick all the time so they are intermittent problems so where is the difference between their cars and ours! I have tried every contact number for Toyota and cannot get anywhere!!!!!!
