Toyota Recalling 3.8 million Cars over Floor Mat Issue

Toyota Motor Corporation has now recalled 3.8 million vehicles on floor-mat complication. This is reportedly the Toyota’s biggest recall in the United States to date and the company has also apologized for this complication that already caused a number of accidents across the country. reported:

Models recalled include the 2007-2010 Toyota Camry, 2005-2010 Avalon, 2004-2009 Prius, 2005-2010 Tacoma, 2007-2010 Tundra, 2007-2010 Lexus ES 350, 2006-2010 IS 250 and IS 350.

The problem is that the floor mats in these cars can cause an abrupt acceleration in speed that the derivers may not be able to stop, and thus, leading to a big accident. So, Toyota is now urging the car owners to return their cars to Toyota and get the problems fixed.

Well, I think, Toyota should handle this issue smartly if they want to solve it without losing much of its goodwill.
