I’m sure you guys have probably heard this by now but if not, there are several Toyota models being recalled due to two different safety issues.

The first recall, "Floor Mat Entrapment," regards the potential for an unsecured or incompatible driver's floor mat to interfere with the accelerator pedal and cause it to get stuck in the wide-open position.

The second recall, "Pedal," is being conducted because there is a possibility that certain accelerator pedal mechanisms may mechanically stick in a partially depressed position or return slowly to the idle position.

Here is the list of Toyota vehicles involved in the recall:

* 2005-2010 Avalon
* 2009-2010 RAV4
* 2007-2010 Camry
* 2008-2010 Sequoia
* 2009-2010 Corolla
* 2005-2010 Tacoma
* 2008-2010 Highlander
* 2007-2010 Tundra
* 2009-2010 Matrix
* 2009-2010 VENZA
* 2004-2009 Prius

If you aren’t sure if your vehicle is involved in the recall, head to your nearest Toyota dealer to get it checked. This is a huge recall that can affect the safety your vehicle.

You can also check your Vin number (17 digit number on the left front dash or checked the drivers door). Vin numbers that begin with “J” are not subject to the recall.

Are you a Toyota owner? Is your vehicle affected by the recall? Have you had it repaired?

    I'm a Toyota owner, but own a 2001 Prius which is not part of the recall. This is an advantage of having an older model, I guess!
