    Hey all, Im considering pedal commander and saw a review or two on Amazon with someone blowing a tranny twice bc of the PC and Toyota declined the warranty claim. Is this a possibility or is this a competitor or something trying to discourage people from the product?

    thx

    You're kind of an idiot if you took your car in with a Pedal Commander hooked up. It takes 5 seconds to remove it and chuck it over the fence before you take it to the dealership.

    This is made by the same group at Pedal Commander. A dumb down version w/ no UI. And significantly cheaper.

    Sounds like the owner had issues before. I have been running one for about 3 years without problems.

    The pedal commanders are nice and work well on the 4runner. It only improves throttle response.

    For me it’s a game changer and two years in I’ve had no issues. As was pointed out, removal is a 5 minute thing. Just take it off before making a warranty claim. I’m at 38k so warranty is a thing of the past anyway.

    I'm thinking the guy was one of those reverse to drive while still rolling backwards people that are in a hurry for nothing. I remember one guy saying it changed ship points but that's not true, the shift points are the same based on throttle input and load.

    Good grief. Must be the same guy that trolled my post on this. He didn’t like them but couldn’t get over that some of us do.

    I drive in the Mtn’s and it works great for me. I’ve had mine to the dealer and no one even said anything about it. I’ve got 112,330 miles on my 2016 with zero issues. Gas mileage sucks no matter what. I climb 2,000’ elevation in 11 miles so I’m not in it for the gas economy . But it’s bad-ass in 3’ + snow!
