Toyota Motor is implementing another round of recall, this time involving 1.1 million vehicles in the United States.

Toyota intends "to fix floor mats that may jam accelerator pedals and cause unintended acceleration," AutoNews.com reported.

The latest recall involves Highlanders made from 2008 to 2010, Corollas, Venzas and Matrixes made from 2009 to 2010; as well as Pontiac Vibes made from 2009 to 2010 under Toyota's joint venture with General Motors.

"We added these vehicles after some reports were received by the federal government of pedals getting trapped on secured floor mats. We heard it's a very small number," Toyota spokesman for recall issues Brian Lyons said as quoted by AutoNews.

Toyota started recalling vehicles due to "sticky" floor mats in late 2009. Last week, it issued another recall order due to suspected faulty accelerator pedals.

Toyota Motor Philippines said local motorists have no reason to worry as the vehicles sold in the country are not from plants in North America where the accelerator and floor mat problems originated.

Toyota Philippines imports the Hiace, RAV4, Land Cruiser 200, Land Cruiser Prado, Previa and Prius from Japan; the Camry, Corolla Altis, Fortuner, Hilux and Yaris from Thailand; and the Avanza from Indonesia. The Vios and Innova are assembled in the Philippines.
