Massive toyota recall on several models

I hope this is not a repost of any type. But I got this in an email today at work


NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID Number:

10V017000

Vehicle Make / Model:



Model Year(s):

TOYOTA / AVALON



2005-2010

TOYOTA / CAMRY



2007-2010

TOYOTA / COROLLA



2009-2010

TOYOTA / COROLLA MATRIX



2009-2010

TOYOTA / HIGHLANDER



2010

TOYOTA / RAV4



2009-2010

TOYOTA / SEQUOIA



2008-2010

TOYOTA / TUNDRA



2007-2010

Manufacturer: TOYOTA MOTOR NORTH AMERICA, INC.

Mfr's Report Date: JAN 21, 2010

NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID Number: 10V017000

N/A

NHTSA Action Number: N/A

Component: POWER TRAIN:CLUTCH ASSEMBLY:PEDAL/LINKAGE

Potential Number of Units Affected:

Summary:
TOYOTA IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2005-2010 AVALON, MODEL YEAR
2007-2010 CAMRY, MODEL YEAR 2009-2010 COROLLA, COROLLA MATRIX, RAV4, MODEL
YEAR 2010 HIGHLANDER, MODEL YEAR 2008-2010 SEQUOIA, AND MODEL YEAR 2007-2010
TUNDRA. DUE TO THE MANNER IN WHICH THE FRICTION LEVER INTERACTS WITH THE
SLIDING SURFACE OF THE ACCELERATOR PEDAL INSIDE THE PEDAL SENSOR ASSEMBLY,
THE SLIDING SURFACE OF THE LEVER MAY BECOME SMOOTH DURING VEHICLE OPERATION.
IN THIS CONDITION, IF CONDENSATION OCCURS ON THE SURFACE, AS MAY OCCUR FROM
HEATER OPERATION (WITHOUT A/C) WHEN THE PEDAL ASSEMBLY IS COLD, THE FRICTION
WHEN THE ACCELERATOR PEDAL IS OPERATED MAY INCREASE, WHICH MAY RESULT IN THE
ACCELERATOR PEDAL BECOMING HARDER TO DEPRESS, SLOWER TO RETURN, OR, IN THE
WORST CASE, MECHANICALLY STUCK IN A PARTIALLY DEPRESSED POSITION.

Consequence:
THE ACCELERATOR PEDAL MAY BECOME HARD TO DEPRESS, SLOW TO RETURN TO IDLE,
OR, IN THE WORST CASE, MECHANICALLY STUCK IN A PARTIALLY DEPRESSED POSITION,
INCREASING THE RISK OF A CRASH.

Remedy:
TOYOTA HAS NOT YET PROVIDED A REMEDY PLAN OR AN OWNER NOTIFICATION
SCHEDULE. OWNERS MAY CONTACT TOYOTA AT 1-800-331-4331.

Notes:
OWNERS MAY ALSO CONTACT THE NATIONAL HIGHWAY TRAFFIC SAFETY
ADMINISTRATION'S VEHICLE SAFETY HOTLINE AT 1-888-327-4236 (TTY
1-800-424-9153), OR GO TO HTTP://WWW.SAFERCAR.GOV .

Oh yeah I read about that last Friday. Lots of recalls. Wonder if they will add Tacoma to the list eventually.
