#1 - Accelerator Stuck problem of the 2009 Lexus IS
The vehicle was a 2009 Lexus Is. The VIN of the car Is JTHCK26269_. This was a loaner car. The gas pedal stuck on the floor. The heavy rubber mat caught the edge of the gas pedal and held it down on the floor. I was able to shift to neutral (don't know how the engine didn't blow up), brake the car to a stop, shift to park and shut engine off. I saw this morning on tv that there have been fatalities reported on Toyota vehicles related to this Issue. It was Wednesday, Sep. 16, 2009 when this accelerator stuck issue happened.
