Submission + - Toyota recalls cars for sticky accelerators (toyota.com) 2

Lars T. writes: "You may remember this Slashdot story from 3 months ago: Toyotas Suddenly Accelerate; Owners Up In Arms. Toyota has now confirmed the problem and are recalling some out of 8 series of cars. Unlike what many in the discussion suspected, the problem is not a software issue, but mechanical: "What is the condition that has prompted Toyota to take this action? In rare instances, there is a possibility that certain accelerator pedal mechanisms may, mechanically stick in a partially depressed position or return slowly to the idle position.""
