Toyota May Shorten Gas Pedal

Toyota has already recommended drivers remove the floor mats from the drivers side, in order to combat the mat from getting stuck in the accelerator pedal.

But Toyota has not finalized any plans for any permanent fixes. Vehicles affected by the recall are the 2007-'10 Camry, Tundra and Lexus ES 350; the 2005-'10 Avalon and Tacoma, 2004-'09 Prius, and 2006-'10 Lexus IS 250. At least one fatal accident has been caused by the floor mat forcing the accelerator pedal to get stuck in the wide open position.

Toyota was the recent target of a Nightline investigation.
