I like it.I wonder if they could upgrade my ECU to remove the top speed limiter??
I completly agree with you about family's safety being first.My dealer re-iterated what Doug said above. I decided to go ahead and get the recall done just in case. I don't drive my car that hard so I don't think I will be affected much. I drive with my son in the car fairly frequently and his safety is the most important thing to me.

Thanks Doug! It doesn't sound as bad as I thought it would be. It looks like launching the car is still possible, so are burn outs...maybe anyways.This info might help out:
The Brake Override System operates when these
conditions are met:
1. The throttle opening is greater than 1/3
2. Vehicle speed is above 5 mph
3. Brakes are applied firmly
In order to activate the Brake
Override System, the accelerator pedal
must be pressed before the brake pedal.
While some dealers are adamant that the recall work must be performed if you bring your car in. Most dealers are doing something like this:Thanks Doug! It doesn't sound as bad as I thought it would be. It looks like launching the car is still possible, so are burn outs...maybe anyways.
What is your dealerships policy on Safety Recall's. Are they mandatory when a client brings in a car or is it optional?
LouI appreciate your position and you are more than welcome to decline the recall. The next time you bring your vehicle in for service, we will ask that you sign a statement saying that you were informed and understand what Lexus is doing and that you have declined to have the procedure performed. Obviously because this is a Safety Recall, Lexus has asked us to determine why the remedy is being declined and to make sure guests are fully aware of the entire procedure. During your next visit please forgive us if we spend just a few minutes with you going over the process per Lexus’ request and answering any questions you may have, however there will be no pressure to have the recall performed. Please contact me if you have any additional questions in the meantime, otherwise I’ll make a note in your file regarding this subject.
Couldn't agree more!I will NOT be doing this. The new pedal is, IMHO, ugly and totally unnecessary. The ECU change, again, IMHO, will change the character to my F. It will not get done to my car.
