There was enough cases to case a 3.8 million car recall.
The issue, the driver's side floor mat may break it's restraint and lodge the accelerator on full and cause crash's.
To make matters worse, these cars have keyless ignition.
You push a button on the dash to start the car.
To stop the car you hold the start button in for 3 seconds-no key to turn off.
Toyota's resolution is to remove the driver's side mat.
Not replace it
Not compensate owners for it.
Just remove it and get your carpet dirty.
