Had the 2007 camry in the dealers for the 2 safety rcealls; Accelerator Bar Reinforcement Bar Installation and Potential floor mat interference with accelerator pedal. They cut the accelerator pedal and it look hideous. :mad:

Have you had your acclerator pedal cut for the safety recall?

If so, what does your pedal look like (pictures please)?

We're very dissatisifed with the workmanship performed on the cut pedal. It's criminal. Looks like rats chewed it. The service manager said "thats the way Toyota wants us to do it". We'll be working with customer service to make reparations (replenishment of a previously inflicted loss by the criminal to the victim). Stay tuned...

This is certainly an interim "fix" from our perspective but according to the dealership that performed the mod it is complete per instructions from Toyota.

Its a kludge! I would be ok with the gas pedal mod kludge as an immediate interim action taken for safety with a commitment to replace the defective designed part with a properly designed part when the parts are available in the future. But Toyoda has made no commitment to his customers to replace the defective gas pedals. Toyoda applies a kludge to cover his asre as cheaply as possible with out regard to customer satisfaction.

Pedal was reworked tonight. They smoothed it out a bit and trimmed the corner. We're on the list to get a replacement pedal when the new design pedal is available.

Exactly why I'm not letting them touch my pedal. I don't have a pedal interference issue anyway because I'm using the correct floor mat with the correct anchors.

Frankly, I'm surprised people are getting this done.

The pedal modification is actually voluntary but the dealers don't like to say that. All you have to do is make a fuss and they will just note that they told you and not do anything. You can chose to do 1..2.. or all 3 of the "upgrades".
