Feb 1, 2010: Toyota Owners Advised of Actions to Take Regarding Two Separate Recalls Pedal Entrapment Recall & Sticky Pedal Recall
NHTSA today informed owners of certain Toyota, Lexus and Pontiac Vibe vehicles about actions they should take if the accelerator gets stuck or is slow to return under certain conditions. Today’s advisory is prompted by continued reports of consumer concern and confusion about two recalls Toyota announced over the past week involving accelerator pedals. Each recall has a different root cause -– pedal entrapment and sticky pedal. In October, Toyota recalled 3.8 million vehicles for accelerator pedal entrapment by the floor mat. Toyota has begun to notify owners of the availability of a remedy for this entrapment recall. The accelerator pedal will be reconfigured by dealers. Then, in January 2010, Toyota recalled 2.3 million vehicles for a problem internal to the accelerator pedal that causes it to be harder to depress, slower to return to the closed position or get stuck in some partially depressed position. Some of the vehicles included in this recall are also included in the pedal entrapment recall. Toyota has announced a remedy repair that will be available right away. Consumers should take the following steps prior to receiving the recall remedy. Owners should pay attention to the operation of the accelerator pedals. If the accelerator is harder to depress than normal or slower to return, it may be a precursor to a stuck pedal. These vehicles should be parked and a dealer immediately notified. Should a pedal become stuck in a partially depressed condition while driving, owners should put their car in neutral, bring it to a stop and call their dealer.
