Toyota recall - another one

Just heard on ABC news. 2.3m recall on Toyota. Sticking gas pedal. Said is is not related to floor mats. Had one guy coast into a dealership in neutral with his engine racing. Toyota fixed it and said it was a stuck accelator pedal. Showed 4 people that died in a Camray that flipped over in a pond. Floor mats were in the truck.
Anad the beat goes on...

You are correct. It was a press release today.

TORRANCE, Calif., January 21, 2010 -- Toyota Motor Sales (TMS), U.S.A., Inc, today announced it would recall approximately 2.3 million vehicles to correct sticking accelerator pedals on specific Toyota Division models. This action is separate from the on-going recall of approximately 4.2 million Toyota and Lexus vehicles to reduce the risk of pedal entrapment by incorrect or out of place accessory floor mats. Approximately 1.7 million Toyota Division vehicles are subject to both separate recall actions.

Tacoma's were not affected

I hope effin' toyota goes down for this.. trying to downplay the issue and originally claiming it's only floor mats.. even a layman can see from reports that the mats along are not the cause of sudden acceleration.

The news channels usually only get about 50% of the story right on any given day. The link to Toyota corps website spells it all out though. I'm glad our vehicles were not affected.

Thanks for your opening post.

Something similar happened to me on a fleet Crown Victoria (former cop car turned municipal errand mobile) as I was driving through an intersection some 10+ years ago. I stomped on the break and had to reach down to unstick the accelerator. Definitely scary experience.
