Toyota’s global SUA recall adds two 2010 models

DETROIT — Two 2010 Lexus models were recently added to the massive recall of 14 million vehicles due to SUA concerns.

DETROIT — Toyota added two Lexus SUVs to its massive recalls to fix sudden unintended acceleration (SUA). To date, Toyota has recalled over 14 million vehicles around the world to fix floor mats, gas pedals and other safety problems, WNYT reported.

The June 29 story stated that the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration asked Toyota to recall about 154,000 Lexus RX 450 H and RX 350 SUVs from 2010.

The agency made the request based on consumer complaints and information from the company. The vehicles’ gas pedals can become trapped by floor mats which cause the SUVs to accelerate unexpectedly.

Numerous cases of SUA involving Toyotas have been reported in carwashes and have led to accidents and even a wrongful death lawsuit. PC&D has covered the subject with magazine articles, a survey and even a special newsletter.

The agency recommended that drivers with the two recalled Lexus models remove the driver’s side floor mat and have their vehicles serviced quickly.
