Toyota announced Wednesday that it will fix gas pedals in millions of cars for an accelerator problem that had previously been blamed on floor mats.

The automaker said that "the shape of the accelerator pedal will be reconfigured to address the risk of floor mat entrapment." Floor pads of the vehicles will also be changed.

Toyota said the reconfiguration applies to the following models:

· 2007 to 2010 Camry
· 2005 to 2010 Avalon
· 2004 to 2009 Prius
· 2005 to 2010 Tacoma
· 2007 to 2010 Tundra
· 2007 to 2010 ES 350
· 2006 to 2010 IS 250
· 2006 to 2010 IS 350
