Guy drives his Toyota Avalon to dealer WOT!!

The throttle on his Toyota stuck wide open and he was still able to drive to the dealership, by cycling the transmission back and forth between drive and neutral. This was the second time his car did this. The first time the dealer did not fix it because they could not reproduce the problem. Nothing like showing them the problem in person. Had to be good for the tranny.
