Toyota to Replace 3.8M Gas Pedals

The Toyota Prius may save the world … if it doesn’t kill you first. Some of the popular hybrids are among the 3.8-million cars whose gas pedals the Japanese auto maker will replace after its September recall. The recall was after a Lexus's accelerator become stuck in August, leading to a crash that killed a highway patrol officer and three of his family members. As a temporary step, Toyota dealers will begin shortening gas pedals in January until the new gas pedals are ready.
