Just because your specific Toyota wasn’t among the 3.8 million recalled last week doesn’t mean you’re safe.
Kicking Tires reports there are other Toyota models that are susceptible to the same floormat creeping under the pedal problem, but only the ones with specifc complaints filed with Toyota or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration got recalled.
All modern Toyota owners should check to make sure their floor mats are properly secured with the retaining hooks, or remove the driver’s side floor mat.
More Toyotas, even the ones that didn’t get specific complaints about them, should get recalled this week, when the recall is finalized.
