Lighten up, Toyota. You are not alone. Today, Nissan recalled 25,024 cars in Japan because some of their accelerator pedals have caught the stickyness sickness, and may not want to come back to idle once you take the foot off the gas.

Cefiro, Bluebird, Sunny, Primera and Tino models built between October 1998 and August 2002 are affected by the recall, Nissan said today in a recall notice posted on the Japanese Transport Ministry web site.

One “light injury” had been reported resulting from an accident linked to the potential flaws, the statement says.  A month ago, Nissan had recalled 539,864 vehicles in the U.S. for potential faults in brake-pedal pins and fuel gauges. Because all eyes were at Toyota, nobody noticed. Too bad that “a problem shared is a problem halved” doesn’t really apply.
