Toyota has recalled 8.5 million Lexus and Toyota vehicles, since October 2009 for problems with braking, accelerators and floor-mats. Many drivers have reported losing control of their vehicles and crashing as a result of sudden acceleration or when the accelerator has gotten stuck beneath carpet plastic floor mats. In addition, there have been incidents where the braking systems in Toyota's best selling Hybrid Prius vehicles failed to appropriately respond to braking. These defects may have lead to serious and even deadly injuries.
Listed below are some of the Toyota and Lexus models involved in the largest recall in Toyota's seven decade history:
2007-2010 Lexus ES 350
2006-2010 Lexus IS 250 and IS 350
