I can tell you that if I were going to do the recall, that would be the only way I would have it done and I would express my disappointment. If they did the shim, I'd drive down the block, come back and have 'em do a new pedal.

My thoughts exactly.

It's a new design CTS pedal... I complained because my pedal was too floppy after the fix and they replaced it without a question.

I thought it was just me. I hate the way the pedal feels with the "fix." I'll have to look into this.

There's a whole other thread on here a while back about it. It seems to be about 50/50 with fixes... which leads me to believe it's probably a training issue on the repair with some shops getting it right and others installing too thick of a shim.

Aren't all shims the same thickness?

Nope, they set a feeler gauge in there and the gap that currently exists in your pedal determines the thickness of the shim that they install. I think, and this is just my opinion, that some are installing the shim improperly and that's what is causing the "floppy pedal" syndrome.

Had mine done two weeks ago, I gave it a shot. I do not like it. Back to the dealer Friday. Do not try it on a rough road.
Hope the new one is better.

Thanks for the clarification.

I'm in the same boat. Got my pedal "fixed" last Wednesday. Going back this Thursday since the pedal flops so bad now that it's pretty much uncontrollable on rough roads.

I was hoping they were going to stop the shim sham and start doing the right thing and replacing the entire pedal.

I agree, this is what Toyota should have done at the beginning ... doing this fix "on the cheap" is getting very expensive now.

No it's not...think about it. 2.3 millions recall..probably like 100,000 "complaints" so it'll still be cheaper than replacing 2.3 millions "new" pedals....all in SHORT-TERM economics...but hell, we live in US..everything is short-term right otherwise we wouldn't be having such deficit for our kids...whatever....

I'm going take my truck in for gas pedal repair now...hopefully they'll just replace it with a new one instead of shim and making me "complain" and come back.

I just got a call from the dealer today, the new replacement pedal is on the way. I was really unhappy with the lame *** shim joke, especially after going off road. I did have to call Toyota and complain about it though. I agree, the shim is not the fix!!!!!

I may get mine done now. I'd prefer a new pedal over a shim, but I really am not concerned about the whole recall... half of the complaints are BS anyway.
