As hearings into Toyota's recall woes begin today in Washington, the automaker has announced that it will install a new brake override feature on an expanded range of vehicles. The feature, initially announced for the 2007-2010 Camry, 2005-2010 Avalon, and the 2007-2010 Lexus ES 350, 2006-2010 IS 350 and 2006-2010 IS 250 models, will also be installed on all 2005-10 Tacoma models, 2009-10 Venza models and 2008-10 Sequoia models.

The brake override feature will automatically reduce engine power when both the brake and accelerator pedal are pressed. While this is not a part of the recall, it will be performed when recall work is done. Toyota says that it is "an extra measure of confidence for Toyota owners."

Toyota has also said this brake override feature will also be standard equipment on most new Toyota models in the future.

Additional info can be found at or by calling the Toyota Customer Experience Center at 1-800-331-4331.
