Toyota recalls 2.3M vehicles for pedal jams

Toyota Motor Corp. announced another big recall Thursday, of 2.3 million cars and trucks, to fix "sticking" gas pedals. The Japanese automaker said the problem occurs rarely and is unrelated to reports of "unintended acceleration" that provoked a recall in September of more than 4 million vehicles.

That's 6.3 MILLION vehicles recalled within ONE model year.
That's....bloody hilarious.

From what I understand this is another problem. They orginally did a recall and it didn't fix the problem.

I have said it before, but you could add up GM's recalls for the past 30 years and still not surpass Toyota's in one year!
