So it was only the Toyota floor mats??

    That's the conclusion of the Feds after having NASA plus other "experts" look into the Toyota sudden acceleration problem. Sticky accelerator linkage also  --  not electrical (electronic).

    I am skeptical that the problem has been identified. Do you think the issue is solved? Would you buy a Toyota now?

    No, I'm not buying it (or the car, for that matter).

      Because of the braking issue?

        The credible reports I've seen include a braking issue along with an acceleration issue, yes.  It doesn't seem plausible that a floor mat would do both simultaneously.

          I agree. It doesn't seem feasible.

            It also doesn't seem believable that it took this long to arrive at "floor mats" as an answer.  I'm sure there are more than a few people who feel furious about this.

    From what I've read it seems if they couldn't find a computer glitch or electrical problem, they assumed it was the mats.

    I owned a Toyota a few years ago and it was a great car. And, they assemble many of them in the U.S. unlike some "U.S." makes.

    They should keep looking for a computer problem, IMO.
