Recalls happen all the time in the auto industry. Some are glitches that affect things like window switches, radio buttons and seat recliners. Others, however, involve more complicated components that directly affect your safety while driving. It's important that all recalls are handled well by auto manufacturers so that every owner of a recalled vehicle has the opportunity to get his or her vehicle fixed in a timely manner. Most of the time, that's exactly what happens. Sometimes, it doesn't. The situation involving Toyota vehicles that may experience sudden unintended acceleration is one of those times.
As things stand, the information out there regarding two major recalls of select Toyota vehicles – one for floormats and another for sticking accelerator pedals – is confusing, so we've assembled the Ultimate Toyota Recall Guide for every current owner of an affected Toyota vehicle and anyone considering the purchase of a Toyota vehicle in the near future. We hope it aids your understanding of what's going on, though there are still many unanswered questions so keep coming back to it as we update its content on a daily basis.
