The Toyota Tundra truck is just one of many Toyota vehicles that are part of an extensive recall situation regarding safety issues in much of the new Toyota product line.
A recent two-part recall has been announced by the company as officials take the stand at U.S. Congressional hearings to explain how the safety issues behind this action have gone unnoticed for so long. Both of the two recalls relate to sudden or unintended acceleration in Toyota vehicles.
The first recall is a recall of floor mats, where the company says that mats improperly installed, or put on top of other floor mats, can get in the way of the accelerator pedal. In the floor mat recall, Toyota is asking drivers to remove the floor mats and wait for further instructions on the replacement of the mats.
The second recall involves “sticky gas pedals” where accelerator pedals have been known to stick on their own, according to Toyota. The company is offering to install reinforced gas pedals in vehicles affected by this recall.
Both of these recalls affect the Toyota Tundra in 2007-2010 model years. In addition to new reinforced gas pedals and other solutions, the company is offering to work on a proposed brake override system that would help deal with the problem of sudden acceleration in Toyota vehicles.
The safety issues mentioned in the recent recalls are especially dangerous with trucks like the Toyota Tundra, and Tundra drivers should be careful about operating their vehicles if they believe them to be affected by these safety issues.
