New Toyota Recall and Suspension of Sales and Production
Looks like GM will be outselling Toyota this month. Sticking accelerator and floor mat issues have already caused several deaths and injuries...

I was at a dealer the yesterday and the saleswoman said that it is only on the Toyotas that were assembled in North America that used the American made gas pedals and that all the vehicles that were put together in Japan are fine. So they have stop manufacturing here until they can fix the pedal and they also have to replace the ones on the lots before they can sell them.Nathan

I take pleasure in seeing Toyota have a problem after all the things Domestic makers have been through.

Well, the recall has spread to China and possibly Europe now too. The pedals are American made, but its not just the Toyotas made in America. "CTS also makes pedals for Honda Motor Co., Mitsubishi Motors, Nissan Motor Co. and Ford Motor Co. in China" and apparently they think the problem is caused by condensation in the pedal return spring mechanism...
