    2005 THROUGH CERTAIN 2010 MODEL YEAR TACOMA VEHICLES POTENTIAL FLOOR MAT INTERFERENCE WITH ACCELERATOR PEDAL.

    WHAT IS THE CONDITION?: "The deffect is the potential for an unsecured or incompatible driver's floor mat to interfere with the accelerator pedal and cause it to get stuck in the wide open position. A stuck open accelerator pedal may result in very high vehicle speeds and make it difficult to stop the vehicle, which could cause a crash, serious injury or death"...(Toyota)

    WHAT WILL TOYOTA DO?: "To make it less likely that an unsecured or incompatible driver's floor mat can interfere with the accelerator pedal on your vehicle, any Toyota dealer will remedy your vehicle at NO CHARGE to you. The remedy will entail modifying the accelerator pedal".
    "If your vehicle is equiped with a set of optional genuine Toyota All Weather Floor Mats (AWFM), it will be inspected to determine if the AWFM set is of an older design. If it is, the older design AWFMs for the driver and the front seat passenger will be replaced with newly designed ones at NO CHARGE to you".
    "Before the vehicle is returned to you, Toyota will inspect the driver's carpet and will clean it if necessary at NO CHARGE to you".

    "As an additional measure independent of the vehicle-based recall remedy, Toyota will install a newly designed override system in your vehicle to provide an extra measure of confidence. This system will cut engine power in case of simultaneous aplication of both accelerator and brake pedals at certain speeds and driving conditions. This installation will also be conducted at NO CHARGE to you".

    WHAT SHOULD YOU DO? "This is an important Safety Recall. Please contact your authorized Toyota dealer to make an appointment to have these important remedies performed on your vehicle as soon as posible..." "the remedy will take approximately 1.5 hours. However, depending upon the dealer's work schedule, it may be necessary to make your vehicle available for a longer period of time..."

    Hey TW members, i just got this safety recall on the mail and i thought it would be helpful to post it. Just in case somebody moved to a new address or something and doesn't get the letter, or for any other reason.
