Tip & How-To about Toyota Camry
We have all read about this gas pedal sticking issue with 8 or so Toyota models built over the past few model years, one is the Camry, so what to do, well having had this happen a few times while working as a professional technician I never panicked, I just reached quickly up and turned the ignition key to off, then pull the pedal back up and see if it is still stuck, if it is have your super reliable Toyota towed to the nearest dealer and ask for a free rental/loaner until the issue is repaired.
Yes you may say this is simple but believe me few think people do this, train yourself to react this way and you will save yourself what could be a terrorizing experience!!
