Giuseppe Cacace/Getty Images(WASHINGTON) — There’s another Toyota recall for sticky pedals — this time for the automaker’s high-end 2010 Lexus models.

The problem is similar to Toyota’s floor mat/gas pedal recall two years ago, when drivers complained that the accelerator could get stuck under the floor mat.  Now the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says a similar issue is happening with 2010 Lexus RX350 and RX 450h models.

The government has ordered an immediate recall of approximately 154,000 vehicles and is investigating why Toyota didn’t warn drivers after getting many complaints.
