Toyota Recalls 3.8 million vehicles

Toyota is recalling more than 3.8 million Lexus and Toyota vehicles, its biggest US recall in history. Drivers reported that floor mats slid forward and in some cases jammed the accelerator pedal.

Owners of Toyota's seven vehicle lines, including the Camry sedan, Tundra truck and three premium Lexus models, have been urged by the Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood and Toyota officials to immediately remove driver-side floor mats, particularly if they are not secured. NHTSA strongly recommended that drivers not replace the mats they remove with any other mat.

Last month a crash in San Diego that killed four people riding in a Lexus ES 350 appears to be the impetus for the Toyota recall. Toyota officials said they were unable at this stage to say how many accidents, injuries or deaths may have been caused by unsecured floor mats interfering with the gas pedal.
