Just months after 4.2 million vehicles were recalled for acceleration pedals that would get stuck, Toyota is issuing another recall for accelerator pedals and floor mats, affecting another, completely different set of 2.3 million vehicles.
Only months after its last huge recall, Toyota has initiated another recall in response to continued problems with unintended acceleration. Vehicles affected by the 2010 recall are the 2005-2010 Toyota Avalon, 2007-2010 Toyota Camry, 2007-2010 Toyota Tundra, 2008-2010 Toyota Sequoia, 2009-2010 Toyota Corolla, 2009-2010 Toyota Matrix, and the 2009-2010 Toyota RAV4.
Unlike the fall 2009 recall, no Lexus vehicles are affected by this recall. Toyota has not decided on how to proceed with the repairs to these vehicles at this time, and are recommending that anyone who experiences an unintended acceleration problem to discontinue driving the vehicle and notify their Toyota Dealer.
Unintended acceleration is especially dangerous on the freeways of Southern California and Arizona. Known for the bumper to bumper traffic, there should this problem occur at the wrong time, there is little anyone can do to prevent what could be a major accident. Should you or a loved one be the victim of a Toyota vehicle experiencing sudden acceleration, do not hesitate to contact The Law Offices of Larry H. Parker at (800) 333-0000. In this particular accident circumstance, while you may have caused an accident, Toyota is at fault, and you deserve fair compensation.
