Prius floor mat recall

You may have heard about the floor mat recall for millions of vehicles, including the mainstay of the HOURCAR fleet, the 2004-2009 Prius. We were aware of this problem several years ago and for that reason had fabric floor mats on the driver's side instead of rubber ones, which were more prone to sticking the accelerator. We've since replaced these with molded plastic mats, which, since they are molded, are unable to slide up and cause problems. We are investigating whether we need to take any further measures with this latest recall.

Drive safe!
