- Vehicles that have not yet received the floor mat entrapment or sticking accelerator
- Cases requiring an explanation of vehicle characteristics where an increase in engine speed is normal, such as higher engine idle speed after a cold start, a slight increase in engine RPM when the air conditioning compressor cycles on, or a slight surge when the vehicle accelerates to the set speed once the cruise control is engaged;
- Concerns or questions about slight differences in the driving experience following a driveability programming update while the adaptive memory adjusts to the wear of certain components and their current operating characteristics;
- The presence of double or triple-stacked floor mats;
- Dissatisfaction with the feel of the accelerator pedal after the reinforcement bar remedy was fitted to address the potential for sticking pedals (in which case a new pedal was installed); and
- In rare cases, vehicles that were not correctly remedied during a recall.
- 1.67 million to address the potential for sticking accelerator pedals
- 1.62 million to address the potential for floor mat pedal entrapment
- 118,000 program updates to the anti-lock brake systems (ABS) in certain 2010 Prius and Lexus models.
