Default Lots of Recall Activity...

Toyota Motor Corp. said Wednesday it will replace accelerator pedals on 3.8
million recalled vehicles in the United States to address problems with the
pedals becoming jammed in the floor mat.

As a temporary step, Toyota will have dealers shorten the length of the gas
pedals beginning in January while the company develops replacement pedals
for their vehicles, the Transportation Department and Toyota said. New
pedals will be available beginning in April, and some vehicles will have
brake override systems installed as a precaution.

Toyota, the world's largest automaker, announced the massive recall in late
September and told owners to remove the driver's side floor mats to prevent
the gas pedal from potentially becoming jammed.

"The safety of our owners and the public is our utmost concern and Toyota
has and will continue to thoroughly investigate and take appropriate
measures to address any defect trends that are identified," Toyota said in a
statement.

Popular vehicles such as the Toyota Camry, the top-selling passenger car in
America, and the Toyota Prius, the best-selling gas-electric hybrid, are
part of the recall. It includes the 2007-10 model year Camry, 2005-10 Toyota
Avalon, 2004-09 Prius, 2005-10 Toyota Tacoma, 2007-10 Toyota Tundra, 2007-10
Lexus ES350 and 2006-10 Lexus IS250/350.

On Tuesday, Toyota announced a recall of 110,000 Tundra trucks from the
2000-03 model years to address excessive rust on the vehicle's frame.
