    I've been dealing with a hair trigger problem with my 2011 rav base 4cyl now for some time. The problem that exists, is a reduction in spring tension in the accelerator pedal at the factory to combat the " unexpected acceleration problem" that toyota was faced with a few years back. I solved my problem recently by attatching a bungee cord to the arm of the pedal. One end wrapped around the pedal arm and the other hooked onto a solid bracket under the dash. The cord does not interfear with any safety situation even if it should break. Some peaple would say that this cord thing would be a safety concern, but it's a lot safer than a hair trigger situation that toyota couldn't fix. I'm not saying that this is what you should do to fix your hair trigger, but it's what i did and now i have a normal pedal .
