Toyota still working on problem that prompted recall

NEW YORK, N.Y. - Toyota says it's still working to develop a solution to a problem with accelerator pedals that has prompted a recall of 2.3 million vehicles in the U.S.
     
Toyota says the gas pedal mechanism can wear down, causing the accelerator to become harder to press, slower to return, or, in some cases, stuck.
     
The recall includes the Camry, Corolla and Avalon models.

A Toyota spokesman says the company isn't aware of any accidents or injuries due to the latest problem. John Hanson says the recall "came together very quickly," and said Toyota will soon be contacting owners directly about the matter.
     
The recall affects:

  • 2005-2010 Avalon
  • 2007-2010 Camry
  • 2007-2010 Tundra
  • 2010 Highlander
  • 2008-2010 Sequoia
  • 2009-2010 RAV4
  • 2009-2010 Corolla
  • 2009-2010 Matrix.

The recall comes just months after the Japanese automaker recalled 4.2 million vehicles over concerns that accelerator pedals could become lodged under floor mats. That problem was blamed for several crashes, including one that killed four people.
