Exceptional Customer and Dealer Response to Recall Campaigns: To date, Toyota and Lexus dealers have performed more than five million remedies for the three key recalls the company announced in late 2009 and early 2010, including approximately 1.8 million to address sticking accelerator pedals, 3.1 million to address the potential for unsecured or incompatible floor mat to trap an accelerator pedal, and 128,000 program updates to the anti-lock brake systems (ABS) in certain 2010 Prius and Lexus models. Toyota customers continue to find the remedies to be both effective and durable.

To date, approximately 80 percent of the sticking pedal modifications have been completed on the 2.3 million vehicles that have been recalled, and more than 86 percent of the ABS program updates have been performed on the 148,000 Prius and Lexus models that were recalled. Nearly 58 percent of the floor mat entrapment modifications have been completed on the 5.4 million vehicles that were recalled for this issue, including nearly 80 percent of the Avalon, Camry and ES350 vehicles involved.

The remedies for the floor mat entrapment issue were announced on a rolling basis (model-by-model) for the first eight months of this year. Now that all of the remedies are available, Toyota is seeing a moderate increase in the completions.
