Toyota and Lexus Floor Mats Recalled

By December 3, 2009News

Recently Toyota announced the floor mats in several Toyota and Lexus vehicles have the potential to become trapped causing unexpected acceleration of the vehicle, which may lead to serious injuries or death. The recall effects the following vehicles, the 2007 – 2010 Camry, 2005-2010 Avalon, 2004-2009 Prius, 2005-2010 Tacoma, 2007-2010 Tundra, 2007-2010 ES350, 2006-2010 IS250 and the 2006-2010 IS350. Owners of these vehicles should contact a local dealer to have the problem corrected, however, it is likely the problem will not be fixed until parts are available and mechanics are properly trained, which will likely be in early 2010. In the interim, owners should remove the floor mats from the driver’s side to avoid any potential harm. If you have been involved in a collision as a result of unexpected acceleration in one of these vehicles, you may be entitled to compensation.
