This will leave some quality-conscious Japanese executive faces red: the world’s most valuable car manufacturer has announced that it will recall 3.8 million Toyota and Lexus cars over a potential problem with removable floor mats.

And as it often happens, the fix is annoyingly simple: take the driver’s floor mat and place it on passenger side.
