Toyota will recall nearly 13,000 vehicles in South Korea due to problems with floor mats, the government said yesterday.

Vehicles affected are the Lexus ES350, the Camry, and the Camry Hybrid, the Ministry of Land, Transport and Maritime Affairs said.

Problems related to the fitting of rubber floor mats presented potential danger in safe operation of the accelerators, the ministry said. Toyota says no accidents related to the floor mats have been reported in South Korea.

"In the US, Toyota recalled its vehicles citing three different reasons," said Transport Ministry official Park Gwang-yul. "The defect found in Toyota vehicles in South Korea coincides with one of them."

Toyota Motor Corp has recalled more than 8 million vehicles worldwide since October, including more than 6 million in the United States, because of acceleration problems in multiple models.

A total of 12,984 vehicles, including the Camry Hybrid, will be recalled in South Korea, the ministry said.
