Key Points:

  • Toyota will have dealers shorten the length of the gas pedals beginning in January
  • New pedals will be available in April
  • Some vehicles will have brake override systems, or a smart brake. (The system will stop the car if both the brake and accelerator pedals are applied simultaneously.
  • The government has attributed at least five deaths and two injuries to the floor mat-related unintended acceleration and has received reports of more than 100 incidents in which the pedal may have become stuck.
  • Dealers will be instructed on how to modify the pedals before the end of the year and will begin shortening the accelerators in 2010.
