Toyota’s sticky pedal, part 3

10Feb10

Here we compare a gas pedal that works efficiently and safely with a defective one that is prone to get stuck. We show, in an interactive graphic, the workings of the accelerator in relation to two factors that affect the pedal’s performance – friction and spring pressure. We also show how Toyota’s reinforcement bar solution is supposed to lower the risk of the pedal being stuck.

  1. Your post Toyota’s Sticky Pedal, Part 3 should be more specific to your blog. I enjoyed the writing, though.

    • I’m not so sure what you mean by “specific.” Maybe you mean “appropriate.”

      If that’s the case, the subject is very appropriate for the blog. It is a visual story. I can go on and on describing it in words, but a diagram showing the process — specially an interactive one — does the job much better.

      Thanks for the compliments.

  2. Hi, your blog page appears to be like quite artistic in its style.

  3. It is nice to definitely dig up a site where the blogger is polished. Thanks for creating your site.

  4. It sounds like you’re creating problems yourself by trying to solve this issue instead of looking at why their is a problem in the first place

    • No, I’m not trying to solve this problem, and would not dream of doing that.

      I am not technically qualified to give expert advise, and so are many other people. This is a very critical safety issue, and the burden is on the manufacturer to fix a defective product.

      I’m just reporting the problem and what is being done, specifically by Toyota, to solve it.

  5. I am always searching online for articles that can help me. Thank you
