On January 28, Toyota instituted its second recall after reports of pedals sticking to floor mats, causing people to accelerate without being able to use their break. The recall included 2.3 million vehicles sold in the U.S. and 1.8 million sold in other countries. An addional 1.1 million more Toyota vehicles were recalled a week later. After several Congressional hearings and testimony, Toyota deemed the recall repairs had been effective in solving the issue.
