The company has said that affected customers will receive recall notices. It has also advised those who ordered all-weather mats as a factory-installed item, to contact their dealers, who will modify the mats pending replacement with a new design.

Fiat says it is not aware of any related accidents or injuries and that only about 1% of the recalled vehicles might actually have the problem.

This recall follows an FCA investigation launched after a customer reported a floor mat interfered with the accelerator pedal while driving. The customer used brake-throttle override to safely stop the vehicle. Introduced to FCA’s lineup in 2003, brake-throttle override has been standard equipment on all FCA vehicles since 2011.

Also subject to recall are an estimated 43,148 all-weather floor mats sold as aftermarket equipment. Affected customers will be advised by the company to bring their mats to a dealer for modification, pending replacement.
