- 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 would have no hesitation at all recommending Phillips Law Group. In particular, Juan Roque has impressed me with his professionalism, his integrity and his heart for the community!
I was recently served court documents that I was being sued from an accident that happened years ago. For someone who has never been through something like this and not familiar with the court lingo or where to even begin, it was very frustrating and stressful. I reached out to a family member who knew Tracy Laskos and the great reputation of Phillips Law Group and within the hours of the initial call for help, I had a direct number to Lead Attorney Nassar. Nassar heard my case and almost instantly put me at ease by explaining the process and how easy it was to handle. Nassar spoke to me like he was a friend, not like I was a client. I am so grateful to Tracy, Nasar and of course my cousin Stephanie for helping out and giving me the direction that I needed to get through this situation. I plan on referring my friends, family and patients that are in need of a personal injury Attorney to Phillips Law Group. Thank you!!
Phillips Law Group is a company that has taught me so many things. Here your work, your dedication, effort and discipline are valued, in addition to the fact that, as a woman, as an immigrant and as a human being, I have been given value and empowerment. We are a successful law firm because all workers feel part of a great family. I am very proud and honored to work at Phillips Law Group.
Phillips is the best!! Love all that they do to give back to the community and how much they help those who are experiencing homelessness. ❤️

I have been with Phillips Law Group for a little over a year and I have learned what teamwork and family in a workplace looks like. There is always someone around to lend a helping hand, which is something I appreciate and cherish. I feel a sense of joy coming to work every day because of my co-workers as well as being able to help people in what can be a scary and stressful situation. I currently work as a Litigation Legal Assistant with an amazing team. When I started here, I was not very knowledgeable in personal injury. I was lucky to have been placed with an amazing team who was willing to take time to teach and pass on some great skills that have been a huge aid in helping me be successful in my position. I would recommend working here at Phillips Law Group, because they care about their employees and there is so much room for growth.
I didn’t know anything about the area, and Phillips Law Group just took care of everything. They helped made sure I knew where I was going, made sure I didn’t have to worry. They literally just took care of me.
