How to get my Toyota repaired?

Information on getting your vehicle repaired is supposed to be coming from your dealership. This should happen soon. If you want more information right away then you should call the dealership where you bought your vehicle.

The good news is that the free repairs should start right away. It is hoped that all the repairs will be done within one month.

The estimated repair time is about 30 minutes. Toyota wants to start with the vehicles that have had a problem with the stickiness associated with the faulty pedal. Next will come the high-mileage, older vehicles which might be more likely to have a problem with the sticky pedal problem.

The repair will be done by a mechanic inserting a stainless steel reinforcement bar into the pedal mechanism to reduce the tension and excess friction that causes the stickiness.

Here is a list of the affected vehicles:

  • 2005-10 Avalon
  • 2007-10 Camry
  • 2009-10 Corolla sedan
  • 2010 Highlander crossover
  • 2009-10 Matrix hatchback
  • 2009-10 RAV4 crossover
  • 2008-10 Sequoia SUV.
  • 2007-10 Tundra pickup


Be advised that not all the models of Camry, RAV4, Corolla and Highlander listed in the recall have the CTS Corp. faulty gas pedals. The dealership will be able to tell you if your model has the CTS pedal.

Some of the models made in the U.S. and models made in Japan have pedal systems built by another parts supplier, Denso Corp. These pedals do not have the defect.

All Toyota models Avalon, Matrix, Sequoia and Tundra covered by the recall have the faulty pedals
