According to a Toyota press release, Toyota intends to recall 2.3 million vehicles to fix accelerator or gas pedals. Toyota claims its engineers “have developed and rigorously tested a solution that involves reinforcing the pedal assembly in a manner that eliminates the excess friction that has caused the pedals to stick in rare instances.”
Jim Lentz, Toyota Motor Sales U.S.A., Inc.’s President and Chief Operating Officer, has stated:
We know what’s causing the sticking accelerator pedals, and we know what we have to do to fix it.
Per Toyota, vehicles affected by the recall include:
• Certain 2009-2010 RAV
• Certain 2009-2010 Corolla
• 2009-2010 Matrix
• 2005-2010 Avalon
• Certain 2007-2010 Camry
• Certain 2010 Highlander
• 2007-2010 Tundra
• 2008-2010 Sequoia
