Toyotal recalls more than 150,000 Lexus vehicles

Posted on Wednesday, July 11th, 2012 at 11:13 am    

After the 2009-2010 problem with unintended acceleration in its popular Prius, Toyota has recently recalled more than 150,000 Lexus vehicles for the same issue.

The 2010 Lexus RX 350 and the 2010 Lexus RX 450H are the two models affected by the recall. In these vehicles, the gas pedal can get trapped under the driver’s side floor mat, causing the cars to accelerate to an excessive speed in a short amount of time.

An investigation into Toyota may also be issued by U.S. safety regulators in order to determine if Toyota has known about this problem prior to the recall. The consequences of this malfunction can result in car accidents and subsequent injuries or even fatalities. Toyota will begin notifying the owners of these recalled vehicles in August.
