Toyota issues recall for more than 2 million vehicles

NEW YORK (AP) - Toyota is recalling 2.3 million U.S. vehicles to
correct sticking accelerator pedals, the latest in a string of
quality problems that have bedeviled the Japanese automaker.
The recall includes the 2009-2010 RAV4, the 2009-2010 Corolla,
the 2009-2010 Matrix, the 2005-2010 Avalon, the 2007-2010 Camry,
the 2010 Highlander, the 2007-2010 Tundra and the 2008-2010
Sequioia.
Toyota Motor Corp. spokesman Brian Lyons says the recall is due
to the vehicles' pedal mechanism becoming worn and, in some cases,
stuck.
The recall comes just months after Toyota issued a larger 4.2
million-vehicle recall because of pedals getting stuck due to
insecure floor mats.
