How fancy.

Toyota is probably the world's largest automaker now. They recently had to launch one of the largest recalls in the history of the US auto industry to solve an issue with floor mats causing the accelerator to get stuck resulting in crashes and deaths.

So being the awesome company that they are how do you think Toyota has decided to address this potentially fatal flaw with your extremely expensive luxury automobile? Are they replacing the offending mats? Are they adding a new attachment point to keep that mat from moving? No, their fix is to use Zip ties. So you've spent $50K + on a Lexus ES350 and there is now a fucking zip tie holding the floor mat in place.....that's sweet.

Of course if it was BMW or Audi there would be some elaborate metal holder milled from a single piece of would be breathtaking. And it would cost $500.
