Comments: First Causes

I agree. I also heard that floor mats were getting up under the gas pedal as well. I don't know about any other autos, but the floor mats in my GM never move.

So how many of these moron drivers are from Maryland?

If it is a mechanical cause, Toyota will set it right...

I've been confused by the floor mat thing. I have a 2003 Corolla and my driver's side floor mat has a grommet that is looped to a hook in the floor. It does not move. As a matter of fact, I've never been able to get it out in order to vacuum it thoroughly.

I remember the Audi debacle well, as my father drove an Audi 5000 at the time. I remember the pastor & his wife on the 60 Minutes interview; there was no earthly way anyone was ever going to get her to accept the fact that her foot was mashing the gas pedal as she pushed her son through the back wall of the garage with her Audi 5000.
