    http://money.cnn.com/2010/01/27/autos/toyota_recall_expanded/index.htm?hpt=T2

    The vehicles now being added to that recall are the 2008-2010 Highlander, 2009-2010 Corolla, 2009-2010 Venza 2009-2010 Matrix, 2009-2010 Pontiac Vibe.
    General Motors' Pontiac car is included in the recall because the Vibe and Toyota's Matrix are similar vehicles that were produced under a partnership between the two companies.
    The vehicles originally included in this recall were the 2007-2010 Toyota Camry, 2005-2010 Avalon, 2004-2009 Prius, 2010 Tacoma, 2007-2010 Tundra and the 2007-2010 Lexus ES350, 2006-2010 and the 2006-2010 IS250

    Is this list correct? it states teh 2010 Taco was on the original list.

    If its the floor mat issue, and it looks like it is, it affects more than just 2010's. Looks like a typo.

    Just looked on Toyota's website and the Tacoma is NOT included in the latest recall.

    Amended Recall
    Potential Floor Mat Interference with Accelerator Pedal

    On Wednesday, January 27, 2010, Toyota sent a letter to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration amending Toyota’s Defect Information Report of October 5, 2009 regarding the potential risk for floor mat entrapment of accelerator pedals in certain Toyota and Lexus models. Toyota has decided to include certain other models in the campaign. The specific model names and years associated with the newly-expanded population of subject vehicles for the pedal entrapment recall include:

    2008-2010 Highlander
    2009-2010 Corolla
    2009-2010 Venza
    2009-2010 Matrix
    2009-2010 Pontiac Vibe


    As of January 26, 2010 the total vehicle population increased by approximately 1,093,000 vehicles.

    Toyota's remedy plan is to modify or replace the accelerator pedals on the subject vehicles to address the risk of floor mat entrapment, even when an older-design all weather floor mat or other inappropriate mat is improperly attached, or is placed on top of another floor mat. Floor surface modifications are also being considered and will be included in the remedy plan for any model for which it is deemed appropriate.

    Initially, dealers will be instructed on how to reshape the accelerator pedal for the repair. As replacement parts with the same shape as the modified pedal become available, they will be made available to the dealers for the repair. Customers who have had the pedal reshape remedy completed will have the opportunity to receive a new pedal if they desire, after replacement pedals become available.

    In addition, Toyota will replace any Toyota all-weather floor mat in a subject vehicle with a newly designed mat, free of charge. For those customers who have the previous design all-weather floor mat but do not need or want the newly designed all-weather floor mat, Toyota will recover the previous design all-weather floor mat and reimburse its price.

    for what it is worth, i let my friend use my truck tonight, and he just told me that when he was coming to a stop at a red light the engine rev'ed up on him and made it hard to stop... i wasn't there so i cant say what actually happened, but i guess i should take it to the dealer?

    i think i might procrastinate for awhile, because the idea of dealing with a service writer after a bunch of paranoid house wives have done everything they can to ruin his day doesn't sound like my idea of a good time.

    Just a thought.

    It's possible that he had his foot on the brake and the accelerator at the same time. My dad ran his Subaru through the garage door by doing this with a pair of fairly large boots on. The harder he pressed the brake the more gas he was giving the car.

    Hmmm, your drink can get stuck in the cupholder leaving you very, very thirsty. Some deaths linked to dehydration as a result of the stuck drinks. That'll really give them some bad PR!

    I love how the other automakers are capitalizing on the stuck accelerator problem. "Come get a GM! When this whole thing blows over in 6 months, your GM will be a piece of shit for years to come."

    I have not had a problem with my 08 tacoma gas pedal but I tell you what if something happens I do not think is that hard to put a car in neutral and press the brake. No matter what people say I love my truck.
