Default My toyota rav 4 sometimes keeps on moving forward?

I went to the dealership and they did something to my car for the recall. Although recently sometimes like 1 out of 20 times i stop my engine revs and feels like im skidding in ice although its straight clean weather 80 degree weathers. It happens for a short time when my engine revs while i am on full brake it creeps forward and does a full stop. there was never a time where my car did not fully stop tho. Its always delayed or feels like im in neutral when i step on the brake sometimes. So Anyone else have this sort of problem? Because the other day i was fully stopped at a light then my car started reving while a person was crossing thank god it did not move forward. But it did startle the person.

Yes many have had this problem but Toyota along with the Toyota reps that hang out in this section will all blame YOU for it. The ONLY solution will be to sell it and buy another brand like a Ford.

first thing,if you have your foot on the brake,its imposable for it to move,second,do you have aftermarket floor mats on?make sure they are not on top of your pedal,toyota wont put the blame on you like some say,they actually treat this very seriously and inspected many and yet to find any sticking accelerator,dont believe me see the canada road safety government page,it shows all the results, NEVER put a rubber mat on top of a carpet mat,make sure your foot isn't touching the gas pedal when your foot is on the brake,this can and has happened to any car manufacture,how can a car company that was number 1 last year be as bad as the toyota haters say(remember everyone bashes what they don't like)i mean all these haters saying that toyotas are so bad yet they never actually seen the problem,they just want to be pro america so they try to trash toyota and bring up the bail getter's,yet they don't realize that toyotas are more american than any gm or ford,(i mean most gm are not even gms,,,dawoos,or even toyotas,remember the Pontiac vibe and the chevy nova)

bring your car to the dealer and they will hook it up to a lap top,this will tell them if you pushed the gas while pressing the brakes,,also what year is it,how many kms?have you ever had a throttle cleaning,once again any car that hasn't had there throttle clean can get stuck open,its happened to me on my chevy cavalier a couple years back,dont buy into this media hype,so many toyotas sudden accel but yet no one can show toyota one or have even seen it,in the car world you have some that stick by there car ,i used to be a chevy guy till i got my camry,then my prius,not only did i never have any accelerating issue i haven't had any issues with the 2 cars,now my brother has almost lost his live cause of a sudden acerating on this ford flex,why isn't the media making a big deal about this,he contacted ford and canada safety government?why?cause it would be unAmerican to trash ford,,,i mean ford is still haveing cars blow up on them,since the 70s they had this issue,
