    @Stevo: The pedal may be plastic (some are, some aren't) but the rod that serves as an actuator is metal.

    "Two known causes
    Those are "sticky" accelerator pedals that may rust to the point where they don't return to idle"
    Funny they say that even though the pedal is made of plastic.

    One possible ECM is that the computer freezes. When in the hung state the ECM does NOT write log entries and does not respond to fly by wire inputs.
    Most computer users have had a hung computer. Just cycle the power. The exact cause may never be known.
    Auto designers need to be aware of this failure mode.
    Dangerous states such as full acceleration should not be stable states. Subaru has WOT as a stable cruise control state. If the computer freezes here, there is a run away car.
    There will be no log entries.

    Toyota is a brand name in automobile sector .I think Toyota must care his customers .And properly investigate the problems and solved it.
