earlier entry regarding the floor mat recall on North American market Toyota and Lexus models. NHTSA have release a photo showing exactly how the accelerator pedal can be caught under the floor mat.
Toyota also revealed that it has came out with a semi-permanent solution - to tie down the floor mats to the driver's seat using plastic zip ties. No doubt it's a practical and cost effective solution. But I am not sure how will those Lexus drivers react when their BMW, Audi and Mercedes buddies look at their new advanced "active safety floor mat retention feature installed."
