WASHINGTON (Jan. 21, 2010)—Toyota Motor Sales U.S.A. Inc. is recalling about 2.3 million vehicles to correct sticking accelerator pedals, the company said.
These vehicles are over and above the 4.2 million vehicles recalled in October because accelerator pedal action could be impeded by improper or out-of-place floor mats. Toyota said the newly recalled vehicles may have problems with sticking accelerator mechanisms, with or without floor mats.
About 1.7 million vehicles overlap both recalls, the company said.
Toyota-brand vehicles recalled in the current action include the RAV4, model years 2009-2010; the Corolla, model years 2009-2010; the Matrix, model years 2009-2010; the Avalon, model years 2005-2010; the Camry, model years 2007-2010; the Highlander, model year 2010; the Tundra, model years 2007-2010; and the Sequoia, model years 2008-2010.
No Lexus or Scion models are involved in this recall, Toyota said.
