Millions of vehicles have now been recalled by Honda, Toyota, and other major auto-makers because airbags exploded, failed to deploy, opened without warning, or had other problems that can cause severe injury or even death.

Toyota has told North American dealers to stop selling six popular models with heated seats because a soft material beneath the seat covers does not comply with U.S. safety standards.

Toyota floor mats Recall attorney Toyota Recalls 2.17 Million Vehicles Over Pedal Entrapment:

In the event that an ill fitting or unsecured floor mat is not properly replaced in the correct position after a service operation, there is a possibility that the accelerator pedal may become temporarily stuck in a partially depressed position rather than returning to the idle position.

The specific model names and years associated with the vehicles for the pedal entrapment recall include:
  • 2005-2010 Avalon
  • 2007-2010 Camry
  • 2009-2010 Corolla
  • 2008-2010 Highlander
  • 2009-2010 Matrix
  • 2004-2009 Prius
  • 2005-2010 Tacoma
  • 2007-2010 Tundra
  • 2009-2010 VENZA
Toyota's remedy plan is to modify or replace the accelerator pedals on the subject vehicles to address the risk of floor mat entrapment, even when an older-design all weather floor mat or other inappropriate mat is improperly attached, or is placed on top of another floor mat. Floor surface modifications are also being considered and will be included in the remedy plan for any model for which it is deemed appropriate.
