Toyota is in the midst of a huge recall that affects millions of cars that could be at risk for sudden acceleration. The carmaker says the source of the problem is floor mats, but others allege there is more to blame.
As Toyota launches a recall that affects 3.8 million vehicles -- its largest ever -- the carmaker says it has pinpointed the cause of the problem: floor mats
The company says the mats can interfere with the gas pedal and cause it to get stuck. A stuck open accelerator pedal can result in high vehicle speeds and make it very difficult for a driver to stop the car.
Death and injury reports connected to the problem prompted Toyota to agree to the massive recall, but now a steady stream of voices from safety experts and from Toyota customers allege there is more than just floor mats to this problem.
