2009 Forester X 5MT
Is this the same throttle problem from last year? If so, this will be the third thing blamed for the problem. First it was floor mats, then ECU programming, and now a sticky pedal.subie-roo said:What's with the gas pedal on these things?! First it gets stuck on the mats, now it doesn't work without the mats??!
I agree. They looked at this long-term. They did the right thing. Lots of other manufacturers have handled (or just simply denied) recalls very poorly - remember ignition coils for Audi and VW? They didn't come out publicly about the problem when they first knew of it and then they didn't have enough replacement coils when they did. Toyota is protecting brand equity.Things happen, they will rebound from it like always.
