Toyota Problems Grow - Now 6.5 Million Vehicles
This latest recall is separate from the recall of 4.2 million Toyota and Lexus vehicles that was suppose to be because of the gas pedals getting caught under floor mats , bringing the total to now 6.5 million vehicles .
The following vehicles included in the recall are 2009-2010 RAV4, 2009-2010 Corolla, 2009-2010 Matrix, 2005-2010 Avalon, 2007-2010 Camry, 2010 Highlander, 2007-2010 Tundra, and 2008-2010 Sequoia.
Toyota blames the recall on “certain accelerator pedal mechanisms” that it says may, in “rare instances, mechanically stick in a partially depressed position or return slowly to the idle position.” In my opinion, It appears that Toyota has largely ignored the electronics aspect of the sudden acceleration problems with its vehicles. We are convinced Toyota’s problems go much deeper than has been revealed thus far.
