- Toyota Recalls Another 2.17 Million Vehicles in United States | Legal News | News Ticker
Most of us remember when, in 2009, the national news was dominated by persistent stories in regards to repeated Toyota recalls of several different models of their vehicles. After several million of these units were recalled and Congressional hearings were held, the story seemed to die down and the company seemed to close ranks and get to work on repairing its image. While all has seemingly been quiet since that issue erupted, it appears that Toyota will have more work to do to repair its image as the company has announced that another 2.17 million vehicles currently active in the United States have been recalled.
The company made the announcement for a similar reason as some of the previous Toyota recalls – the accelerator pedals have shown a tendency to get stuck in floor mats or jammed in the carpeting along the floor. This problem causes the vehicle to accelerate and to move at high rates of speed without the knowledge of the driver. The models affected by the latest Toyota recall include:
- 600,000 2003 through 2009 4Runners
- More than 750,000 2006 through 2010 RAV4’s
- 17,000 2008 through 2011 Lexus LX 570’s
- 372,000 2004 through 2006 and early 2007 RX 330, RX 350 and RX 400h units
- Almost 400,000 2004 through 2006 Highlander and Highlander HV’s
- 20,000 2006 and early 2007 Model Year GS 300 and GS 350 All-Wheel Drive
This latest Toyota recall brings the total number of vehicles recalled since these problems arose originally to more than 14 million units. The company is beginning the process of alerting owners to the problem, and they are going to be asked to bring their vehicles to the dealership nearest their home or work for the necessary repairs.

I tried a few previous law firms and none would take my car accident case with confidence they could get my anything. Phillips law group took my case and although it took around 4 years to get this case settled as I was in treatment, they never let up with insurance adjusters and they got me as much money as possible. They worked hard for me and advocated for me. Shoutout to key individuals who worked my case nonstop of the years, Robert Ross & Jasmine, you are AMAZING!
I want to thank attorneys Tim and Robert and the paralegal Bethany for all they had done on my case. They were all empathetic, knowledgeable and professional. All my questions were answered, emails returned in a timely matter, and promises fulfilled. I recommend Phillips Law Group if you need help with your injury case.
Jeffrey Phillips is truly a brilliant attorney and businessman. I would not hesitate for a moment to contact him if I needed a personal injury attorney in Arizona, you would be fortunate to have him and his team. If you have a car accident, slip and fall in a store, or get punched in the face, call Phillips.
Thank you Phillips Law Group for all the support and back to school assistance we appreciate it.
