Toyota and Nissan Announce Major Safety Recalls

From the world of auto makers, there are two major safety recalls to pass along.

Both Toyota and Nissan have issued consumer advisories.

Toyota is recalling optional "all-weather" floor mats available in two car models-- the Lexus ES 350 and Toyota Camry.

About 55,000 vehicles are affected.

Federal safety officials say that if unsecured, the mat could move forward and trap the gas pedal causing the car to accelerate uncontrollably.

Meanwhile, Nissan is recalling nearly 420,000 sport utility vehicles.

The problem is possible corrosion in the tube where motorists pump gas.

The recall involves Nissan Pathfinder and Infiniti Qx4 SUVs from 1997 to 2001.
