Problems with certain Toyota and Lexus vehicles rapidly and unexpectedly accelerating have already led to a 3.8 million vehicle recall. During the recall, the National Highway Transportation Safety Agency stated that the sudden acceleration problem may have already happened over 100 times. However, a new report by the Los Angeles Times suggests that the problem of sudden acceleration has actually been reported more than 1,000 times. Toyota and the NHTSA may have ignored certain complaints, leading to the dismissals of many defect inquiries.
The Law Offices of Larry H. Parker is keeping an eye on this story. The Toyota floor mat recall affects the owners of Toyota vehicles, including the 2004-2009 Toyota Prius, 2005-2010 Toyota Tacoma, 2005-2010 Toyota Avalon, 2007-2010 Toyota Camry, 2007-2010 Toyota Tundra, and Lexus vehicles, including the 2006-2010 Lexus IS250, 2006-2010 Lexus IS350, and 2007-2010 Lexus ES350.
