The Problem: Toyota and Lexus discovered in 2009 that the accelerator pedal in certain cars could interfere with the floor mats. That potentially means the accelerator would be held open, causing the “unintended acceleration” events that made news headlines three years ago.
The Fix: Lexus will replace or reshape the accelerator pedal in affected vehicles, and replace the floor mats, in order to prevent any interference between the two. Recall notices will be sent to owners in August.
Number of Vehicles Potentially Affected: 131,800 2010 Lexus RX 350 models, 22,200 2010 Lexus RX 450h models.
