Another Toyotal Recall

The Toyota Motor Corporation will be tearing what it has left of its hair out after recalling 2.17 million Toyota and Lexus vehicles in the States due to accelerator pedals that may get stuck in the floor mats or carpeting

The Japanese car giant has recalled 19.2 million Toyota and Lexus vehicles globally and more than 13.7 million in the USA since autumn 2009.

As a response to US government concerns, Toyota expanded a recall it announced in November 2009 to address the floor mat entrapment/ accelerator pedal issue.

The affected vehicles include around 603,000 Toyota 4Runner SUVs sold from the 2003 -9; about 17,000 Lexus LX 570 SUVS sold from 2008-11; and around 761,000 Toyota RAV4 vehicles sold from 2006-10.

Toyota and Lexus dealers will carry out work on the vehicles at no charge, the carmaker has confirmed.
