This week, Toyota announced a defective product recall of a large portion of their small to mid-size sedans and SUVs. Toyota has recalled and suspended sales of quite of these "recalled" vehicles. Obviously, if Toyota has recalled this many cars, this is of serious nature. The gas pedals of these cars involved could stick due to wear and tear on the products chosen during production. Normal friction, normal wear and tear and some environmental issues can cause the pedals to stick. This is a TOTALLY separate recall from the floor mat pedal entrapment issue. Those Toyota vehicles involved in the gas pedal recall are as follows (per the pressroom brief on Toyota.com:
Certain 2009-2010 RAV4*
Certain 2009-2010 Corolla*
Certain 2007-2010 Camry*
Certain 2007-2010 Tundra
Certain 2010 HIghlander*
*Highlander and Camry hybrids are NOT involved in this action and will remain for sale. Further, Camry, RAV-4, Corolla and Highlander vehicles with VINs that begin with "J" are NOT involved - Pressroom at Toyota.Due to the seriousness nature of this recall, and accidents that have already occurred, please contact your nearest Toyota Dealership for further information on your vehicle.
