Toyota Recalling Thousands of 2010 Lexus RX 350 & 450h SUVs – Car Pro News

As Toyota was touting a glitzy new deal with BMW for the future, the Japanese automaker was forced to recall a new batch of vehicles for sudden-acceleration risk.
The recall of about 154,000 2010-model Lexus RX 350 and RX 450h hybrid SUVs extends a 2009 recall for floor mats that can trap gas pedals. Toyota says the recall total consists of about 131,800 RX 350s, and 22,200 RX 450hs.
The company previously recalled 6.9 million vehicles for the possibility that floor mats could jam the gas pedal. Separately it recalled 2.1 million for a gas pedal mechanism that could stick and hold a pedal open after a driver lifted his or her foot.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) says the latest extension of the 2009 recall came after regulators reviewed “consumer complaints and information provided by the manufacturer” and “requested that Toyota conduct an immediate recall.”
