Toyota recalls 1.8 million vehicles in Europe due to gas pedal, another 1.1 million vehicles in US over floor mat issues, |

Toyota was quite busy at the end of last week, and announced that its huge recall over unintended acceleration claims has expanded into Europe, and will affect eight models, totaling 1.8 million vehicles.

The models in question are: the Auris, Avensis, Aygo, Corolla, iQ, RAV4 Verso and Yaris, all cars which have really impressed most Europeans up until now. The reason for the recall is the faulty gas pedal, which can become unresponsive over time due to wear.

But the Japanese company isn’t done yet, as it has revisited an older recall, still quite impressive, due to the floor mats which were blocking the accelerator pedal and forcing it into an open position. The corporation added another 1.1 million vehicles in the US to the big recall, which include models like 2008-2010 Highlander, 2009-2010 Corolla, 2009-2010 Venza, 2009-2010 Matrix, 2009-2010 Pontiac Vibe.

Overall, even if your Toyota isn’t included in these new recalls, it’s best to have it checked out just in case.
