Floor mat attacks Avalon by remote control

Yessir, the floor mat had most certainly been removed, so some sort of remote control is the only logical expanation for this case of unintended acceleration involving a 2007 Toyota Avalon.  Apparently, what this pesky floor mat - they're known to be vindictive and hateful -didn't count on was the driver being able to get the car to the dealer while the problem was occuring. If Toyota will look into this matter a little closer, they'll no doubt discover that floor mats are highly sensitive, and it irks 'em to be removed.

Based on my experience, floor mats get treated better than Toyota's customers.
