Toyota Vehicle Safety Notice

Post  TOYOTA on Thu Oct 01, 2009 5:47 pm

Toyota Canada Inc. Press Release September 29, 2009

Toyota takes public safety very seriously. It believes its vehicles to be among the safest on the road today.

Recent events have prompted Toyota Motor Sales, USA, Inc to take a closer look at the potential for an accelerator pedal to get stuck in the full open position due to an unsecured or incompatible driver's floor mat. A stuck open accelerator pedal may result in very high vehicle speeds and make it difficult to stop the vehicle, which could cause a crash, serious injury or death.

Toyota considers this a critical matter and will soon launch a US safety campaign on specific Toyota and Lexus vehicles. Throughout the process of developing the details of the action plan, it will advise the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

Until Toyota develops a remedy, Toyota Canada joins our US colleagues in asking owners of specific Toyota and Lexus models to take out any removable driver’s floor mat and NOT replace it with any other floor mat.

The following Toyota and Lexus models are affected:

2007 – 2010 Camry
2005 – 2010 Avalon
2004 – 2009 Prius
2005 – 2010 Tacoma
2007 – 2010 Tundra
2007 – 2010 ES350
2006 – 2010 IS250 and IS350
