Toyota recalls 2.2 million vehicles over pedal issues

Thursday, February 24th, 2011 | Finance News

DETROIT (Reuters) – Toyota Motor Corp issued three recalls affecting nearly 2.2 million vehicles on Thursday, citing accelerator pedal issues.

In the biggest of the three, Toyota said it would recall nearly 1.4 million vehicles because of the potential that the floormat could get lodged under the accelerator pedal and trap it.

This would widen its late 2009 recall of its Camry and other models to address the floormat risk.

Three models are affected by this recall, including 761,000 RAV4 crossovers for the model years 2006 through 2010.
