    I guess the accelerator is getting stuck on the floor mats. Mine did this just the other day.

    I don't know why it's a 'recall' though..

    Toyota to Recall 3.8 Million Vehicles

    Tuesday, September 29, 2009
    After the U.S. government put out a warning to owners of Toyota and Lexus vehicles about safety problems tied to removable floor mats, the Japanese automaker announced that it will recall 3.8 million vehicles sold since 2004.
    According to the consumer alert, the floor mats of the affected vehicles could interfere with the accelerator pedal and cause a crash.
    The Transportation Department says owners should take out the floor mats on the driver's side and not replace them.
    The consumer alert affects 2007-2010 model year Toyota Camry, 2005-2010 Toyota Avalon, 2004-2009 Toyota Prius, 2005-2010 Tacoma, 2007-2010 Toyota Tundra, 2007-2010 Lexus ES350 and 2006-2010 Lexus IS250 and IS350.
