Toyota Tundra Has More Recall Woes

January 22, 2010
When it rains it pours - in Toyota's case anyway. The full-size Toyota Tundra pickup, already the subject of two concurrent recalls, has been included in a new massive recall related to repairs of sticking accelerator pedals.

The Toyota Tundra, which has never really achieved the level of sales success against the Detroit Three's full-size truck offerings, has suffered some quality gaffs of late. Late last year Toyota issued a Tundra recall of 2000-2003 models related to rusting frames, affecting around 111,000 vehicles (see coverage at Autoblog).

The 2007-2010 model year Tundra was included in Toyota's recent massive floor mat recall, which affected a total of around four million vehicles (see coverage at LexusReports.com).  The same model year range has now been included in the next recall, involving not just correct placement and securing of floor mats, but actual repairs to the accelerator pedals to prevent sticking.

The latest Toyota recall affects a total of about 2.3 million vehicles, including the Tundra. Not all models included in the floor mat recall were included as part of the accelerator pedal recall. For example, even though the Tundra was affected by the latest recall, the compact/mid-size Tacoma pick-up was excluded.

PickupTrucks.com advised, "Toyota owners who have questions or concerns should contact the Toyota Customer Experience Center at 800-331-4331."
