Via CNNMoney.com: — Toyota is recalling 2.2 million vehicles to correct problems that can cause gas pedals to become stuck in floormats.
In one problem, the gas pedal can become stuck in the plastic pad that’s part of the driver’s side floormat if the floormat isn’t replaced properly after being removed, Toyota said in its announcement. The automaker is recalling 20,000 2006 and early 2007 model year Lexus GS300 and GS350 All-Wheel cars to fix this problem.
In other cars, a retention clip used to secure a piece on the vehicle’s center console can come loose and could cause the pedal to become stuck.
To fix that issue, Toyota is recalling 372,000 model year 2004 through early 2007 Lexus RX 330, RX 350, and RX 400h SUVs, as well as approximately 397,000 2004 through 2006 Highlander and Highlander Hybrid SUVs for this problem.
