She makes the exact same claims some Toyota owners made. Rowing through the gears did nothing. Brake to the floor nothing. Emergency brake all the way on and nothing.

Only after she reached down with her hands (brave act at 120 MPH) and physically lifted the stuck gas pedal and pushed down at the same time on the brake did the out of control Kia stop.

I didn't think Toyota's problem was with electronic throttles. My Highlander was included in the recall for stuck accelerators. The supposed cause was the pedal getting stuck under the floor mat. When I took my vehicle in for the recall, all the dealer did was saw or grind off a bottom portion of the gas pedal.
