new pedal or the shim fix? Was it bad to begin with?

It has been this way since I bought it in November 2009.
Bad from the start, bad after the shim and bad with the new gas pedal.
I was backing out of a parking space that was slightly downhill the other day the other night. I tried to baby it but the car wouldn't move. I depressed the pedal with the same force that I would have with my 1992 Camry and I lurched back anway. Maybe I'll take the technician (who said he didn't notice anything when we rode together) with me to that parking lot and let him try to back it out without lurching.

I experience the same "jolt" or "lurch" only if I put the shifter in drive immediately after starting the engine on my 2010 le..It is especially noticeable if the engine is cold and the engine rpms are slightly higher than normal, (normal when the engine is cold)..usually if I wait 10-15 sec after starting, the engine rpms drop and there is no longer a jolt when engaging the shifter to drive..

petras2, that is not what we are talking about. yes the Engine RPMs are higher when the engine is cold, we are talking about the response from the gas pedal when it is depressed. Instead of smooth gradual acceleration, there is no response to a certain point and then we get a lurch when it finally engages.
