You think Toyotas ran away? Here comes Lexus

A while back Toyota went through a lot of recalls for its unintended acceleration recalls and cases. Lexus did some too. Well, here comes Lexus again.

Federal safety investigators just announced that nearly 134,000 of the Lexus RX 350 and RX 450h hybrid vehicles are being recalled.

All of this hit the fan back in 2009 and 2010 when a state trooper in California died at the wheel of a runaway Lexus, killing several family members in the crash. Ultimately in the first recall 3.8 million Lexus and Toyota vehicles were recalled, with the blame on loose mats that can catch under the accelerator pedal. That was followed two months later by another recall involing millions more with sticking accelerator assembly dangers and/or fears.

Toyota, which builds the luxury Lexus models, thought it put all of this behind it. Well, here comes Lexus again, with 131,800 2010 model year RX 350 SUV's recalled and 22,500 of the hybrid RX 450h SUV's recalled.

Until you get your recall notice, we recommend you remove the floor mats completely and continue to drive carefully.
