2.3 million Toyota vehicles recalled

2.3 million Toyota vehicles recalled

Posted on Friday, January 22nd, 2010 at 12:34 PM EST.(Employee News)

Toyota said yesterday it was recalling 2.3 million vehicles to fix accelerator pedals that could fail to spring back, raising the total number of Toyota models called back for possible uncontrolled acceleration to 4.8 million, the Detroit Free Press reported.

The move reignites questions surrounding sudden acceleration in Toyota vehicles that have been linked to a dozen deaths and more than 100 complaints to federal regulators, the paper noted. The Japanese automaker last year recalled 4.2 million Toyota and Lexus models over problems with floor mats causing stuck accelerator pedals, the Free Press said.

Toyota said the new problem could occur without any floor mat in place, the paper said. The automaker does not have a fix for the problem currently, and warns customers to hold down the brakes if their accelerator pedals become stuck, the story said. (Detroit Free Press)
