Floor mats force recall of 3.8 million Toyota and Lexus vehicles
In response to a recent accident in California that involved fatalities, Toyota is issuing a recall of 3.8 million Toyota and Lexus vehicles because the company says the floor mats can interfere with the accelerators.
Included in the recall is the 2005-2010 Prius Hybrid. The Prius is scheduled for production in Blue Springs, though a starting date has not been set.
The 3.8 million vehicles is the largest U.S. recall the company has ever issued. Magnolia Marketplace ran a Google search and was able to come up with only one link, which is here.
