Toyota recalls 2.3M vehicles

Toyota announced Thursday that it is recalling 2.3 million vehicles sold in the U.S. in order to fix mechanical problems that could cause accelerator pedals to get stuck.

The recall list includes the Tundra, RAV 4, Corolla, Matrix, Avalon, Camry, Highlander and Sequoia models from 2005 to 2010.

This latest recall comes just months after the Japanese automaker recalled 4.2 million vehicles over concerns that floor mats could get tangled with accelerator pedals. That problem was blamed for several crashes, including one fatal accident.

Police say the suspect pedals and floor mats have caused multiple crashes on the Island.
