    I found out Toyota is currently recalling all vehicles with gas pedal problems . My mother owns a Toyota, can the car be used before being replaced?

      Hi Tama, As of now, Toyota's been saying to keep driving as usual until you receive the notice telling you that your car's "remedy" is available at your Toyota dealership; given that the Toyota website also gives detailed instructions on what to do if your accelerator pedal does in fact get stuck, it's not exactly giving me the most comfort–and it's one thing to read the instructions while your just relaxing at your computer; it's another to remember what to do in a highly stressful real-life situation. So my only advice is to use extra caution and care should you (or your mother) choose to keep driving. If you're able to just leave the car parked for a while until its able to be repaired, that would get my vote…Good luck with it; let us know how you make out with the repair!

    Toyota executives are currently testifying before Congress about the safety issues that have led to the recall of millions of vehicles. They insist that "We are confident that no problems exist with the electronic throttle control system in our vehicles."
