Toyota Recent Recalls Focus on Gas Pedals

A series of problems regarding the late models of Toyota prompted recalls where the most recent one is focused on fixing the reported sticking accelerator pedals.

Toyota Motors Corp. issued the recent recalls after receiving reports of worn and stuck pedal mechanism that can cause vehicle collisions and other road accidents that threatens the lives of motorists.

Toyota vehicle models included in the recalls are the 2009-2010 Corolla, RAV4, and Matrix, the 2007-2010 models of Camry and Tundra, the 2005-2010 Avalon, the 2008-2010 Sequioia, and the 2010 Highlander.

The recent recalls preceded Toyota’s recall of about 4.2 million vehicles because of problems with the gas pedals that get stuck because of defective floor mats.

Product liability holds the company responsible for any damages incurred because of their negligence in keeping their products safe for the public use.

These recalls will certainly take a hit in the company’s reputation and financial stability which only proves the importance of conducting tests and quality checks before releasing the product to the market.
