    it's 3 parts total, a shim for the pedal, and a styrofoam block for the floorboard underneath the carpet, also a rubber stopper on the same area.

    oh, I figured they would just take the mats from one car and put them in the next one. Did anyone actually believe it was the floor mats?

    how did you get your job, have you been there a long time? you ever been worried about your job security in this market - not about these recalls but like last year when all those domestic dealserships were closing down?
