I’m adding this story because I have friends and family that own and drive Toyota’s and I want all of you safe this holiday season. Big Recall Info below
TOYOTA TO RECONFIGURE GAS PEDALS _ Gas pedals will be reconfigured or replaced on 3.8 million Toyota and Lexus models recalled in late September because of runaway acceleration. The company initially blamed the problem on faulty floor mats. Dealers will begin the work in January “to address the risk of floor mat entrapment.”
… The recall affects the 2007-2010 Toyota Camry, the 2004-2009 Toyota Prius, the 2005-2010 Toyota Avalon, the 2005-2010 Tacoma, the 2007-2010 Toyota Tundra, the 2007-2010 Lexus ES 350 and the 2006-2010 Lexus IS 250 and IS 350.
… The initial, voluntary recall was prompted by the deaths of an off- duty California Highway Patrol officer, his wife, their daughter and his brother-in-law. Their 2009 Lexus ES 350 sped out of control, crashed through an embankment and burned.
