Highlander Hybrid

  • 350 miles
We bought a new 2006 Toyota Highlander hybrid in 2005 and, from time to time since we bought it, the accelerator pedal kind of sticks or surges in certain driving conditions. When you try to reduce speed by taking your foot off the gas pedal. It sometimes does not immediately respond, it takes a few seconds to reduce speed and sometimes actually surges a little, which it also does sometimes when you are driving at a consistent speed. I thought it had to do with the hybrid feature and just sort of learned to be sensitive to it and hit the brakes if it needed it, but this sounds like what is going on with other models subject to the recall and, as our model is not subject to the recall, I am concerned about it. Please advise.
