In regard to the news release issued by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) on Wednesday, Nov. 4, Toyota offers the following response:
It was never our intention to mislead or provide inaccurate information. Toyota agrees with NHTSA’s position that the removal of the floor mats is an interim measure and that further vehicle-based action is required. We are in the process of developing vehicle-based remedies to help avoid the potential for an incompatible or unsecured driver's floor mat to interfere with the accelerator pedal and cause it to get stuck in the wide open position.
