Toyota Recall for Deadly Defect Culminates in Complete Halt of Sales

The first step was denial. No problem. The deaths and injuries caused by Toyota's defective interplay between its floormats and accelerator pedals was a fiction. Perhaps that was an effort to defuse wrongful death and injury lawsuits mounting against Toyota. http://www.maryland-law.com/blog/floormats-are-the-culprit-in-sudden-acceleration-toyota-and-lexus-crashes.cfm

If it was it did not work. First, the NHTSA weighed in and voila a recall of millions of vehicles occurred. http://www.maryland-law.com/blog/toyota-posits-fix-for-accelerator-pedal-entrapment-crash-problem.cfm

Next it was "we've fixed it" and that evidently was not true either. Now it is stop production and sales of the following highly popular vehicles:
2009-2010 RAV4,
2009-2010 Corolla,
2009-2010 Matrix,
2005-2010 Avalon, 
2007-2010 Camry,
2010 Highlander,
2007-2010 Tundra,
2008-2010 Sequoia

This is an extraordinary move and one must give Toyota some credit for it albeit a little late for those killed and injured. http://www.maryland-law.com/blog/toyota-recall-too-late-for-california-family.cfm
