A month and a half after announcing a safety recall of 3.8 million vehicles as risk of having accelerators trapped under floor mats, Toyota has a plan to fix the problem.
The automaker will be replacing the accelerators in the vehicles affected and in some models; it will install a brake override system.
It's that last part which will get a fair amount of attention. Around the country there have been complaints filed claiming some Toyota models have unintended acceleration and cannot be stopped. Despite six federal probes that have not found unintended acceleration, there are some who insist the problem with Toyota's goes well beyond gas pedals getting stuck in floor mats.
