Own a Toyota or Lexus vehicle and not even sure if or how it's affected by the recent massive recall efforts?

Looking back at the headlines of recent weeks and months—especially in this era of fast-moving, encapsulated news—it's easy to be confused over what's happened and what cars are covered. Well, that's understandable: There are two very different recall efforts, both pertaining to the idea of unintended acceleration or the perception that the throttle pedal is sticking. The Toyota accelerator-pedal recall is entirely separate from the ongoing Toyota/Lexus recall affecting floormats and pedal entrapment—as well as the electric power steering issues that have affected other Toyota vehicles and engine issues affecting some Lexus models.

At this point about 5.4 million vehicles in all are affected by these recalls in some way, with 2.3 million covered by the sticking-throttle-pedal recall and 4.2 million covered by the pedal-entrapment (floor mat) issue. And about 1.7 million vehicles are covered by both recalls.

Here's a run-down of all the models currently affected by the recall efforts. And below that, please browse our timeline and story index for the latest news and all the up-to-date details, as well as the play-by-play on how the story has developed:
