Default Identifying faulty CTS gas pedal systems (?)


Some close family friends of ours own a 2009 Toyota Camry that they
bought new about eleven months ago. It's their only vehicle and they
are wondering if there's any effective way to distinguish /
differentiate a defective CTS Corp.-produced gas pedal from a Denso gas
pedal system, which are supposed to be unaffected by the recall?

I mean, are there any ways for non-mechanics to visually inspect and
determine whether one's Toyota vehicle has a potentially faulty CTS
Corp. unit, such as visible serial/part numbers, structural clues or an
alphanumeric code within the VIN?

Thank you very much in advance for any input and/or assistance that
you can furnish.

"defective cts pedal" You mean CTS the company making the replacement
that made the first ones to Toyota spec and are making the new ones to
Spec. I just bet this wont fix it.

The faulty pedal is one of the many problems facing Toyota, but is not
considered the cause of the bigger sudden acceleration issue. Sudden
acceleration, some suggested, was caused by faulty electronics.

For example:

"Chuck Eaton, a retired industrial engineer in Greer, S.C., said he
has experienced a surge in his 2006 Toyota Tacoma three or four times,
usually in warmer weather, when he deactivates the cruise control at
between 65 and 70 m.p.h., then quickly resets it. But it has never
happened in his wife's 2004 Toyota Camry."
