Soft Pedal Feel in 2010 Camry LE

Hi my family previously owned Honda Accords and were very comfortable with their driving and handling characteristics. An Accord isn't the flashiest of cars but the "pedal feel" of the accelerator is usually very "hard" that is it feels like there is alot of resistance when pushing down on the pedal and even low pressure on the pedal the car immediately responds. We recently bought a new 2010 Camry LE I4 Auto and the "pedal feel" is noticeably much "softer" with very little resistance and you can press the pedal about 1-3 cm down before the car accelerates. I am wondering if this is just how Camry's drive, they drive almost like Chevy or Ford Sedans, or if this is because our pedal was fixed via the shim. If its because of the fix should I just ask for a new CTS pedal replacement?
This discussion has been closed.
Toyota has announced that anyone not satisified with the feel of the pedal, after the fix, is entitled to a brand new pedal replacement free of charge. Just take it back to the dealer and complain. It's hardly likely that you will get any "pushback" from the dealer either since in the announcement Toyota states that dealers should not try to solicit this activity.....Conflicting interests.
Magician's trick, look HERE, not over "
there"(***) where the real action is.
*** Firmware FLAW, "bug".
Probably. The brake override firmware upgrade that comes with the floor mat recall is the most important "fix" IMO. So far so good.
*** Firmware FLAW, "bug".
The only certainty there is uncertainty.
My 2009 felt the same way compared to the '97 Camry I traded in. Adjusted to it in a few weeks. No biggie. I think Toyota really skimped on the quality of those pedals in addition to quite a few other areas.
I see Toyota sales soared in March, that's one big "juggernaut" of a company.
If we don't fix the pedal, Should we be concerned since Toyota/NHTSA has confirmed there is potential sticky pedal issue due to condensation?
I would hesitate to ever lend the car to someone for this reason. It really irritates me. Toyota dealer technician said "I can't feel anything strange" when I took it in to have it looked at. I shouldn't have bothered taking it in.
Bad from the start, bad after the shim and bad with the new gas pedal.
I was backing out of a parking space that was slightly downhill the other day the other night. I tried to baby it but the car wouldn't move. I depressed the pedal with the same force that I would have with my 1992 Camry and I lurched back anway. Maybe I'll take the technician (who said he didn't notice anything when we rode together) with me to that parking lot and let him try to back it out without lurching. :mad:
