A voluntary recall on certain Lexus RX crossovers will soon take place and do so in regards to a controversial issue. Back in 2010, Toyota was plagued with numerous complaints and recalls dealing with stuck throttle pedals while a few resulted in serious crashes. The problem was thought to be dealt with but once again, a Toyota is being investigated for a sticky accelerator. Just as before, the problem is caused by an unsecured and or misshapen floor mat that can trap the pedal in the wide open position. If this were to occur, a driver would find it rather difficult to slow the rapidly accelerating SUV.
So far, approximately 154,036 Lexus vehicles are at risk. Affected cars are 2010 model year RX350s and RX450h Hybrids manufactured between November 28, 2008 through September 1, 2010. To remedy the issue, certified dealers will not only replace the floor mat but will inspect and if deemed necessary, replace the throttle pedal. Notifications will start in early August of this year and the repair will take place at no extra cost to owners.
