In the wake of a massive recall announced last week, Toyota is suspending U.S. sales of several models.
The sales suspension includes late model Corolla, Matrix, Avalon, Camry, Highlander, Rav-4, Tundra, and Sequoia vehicles.

The recall involves over two million vehicles. That's just months after Toyota recalled more than four million vehicles due to gas pedals that could become stuck under floor mats causing the vehicles to accelerate.
