Toyota fix needed

Massive recall and halt in sales for 10 Toyota vehicles

At one point the affected vehicles total over 2.3 million in the USA with Canada having 270,000+ recalled because of a concern with a potentially faulty gas pedal. The numbers have grown significantly. Two class action lawsuits have been filed against the company. Toyota is starting to do repairs on the vehicles, starting with the older models.

The vehicles that are affected include the following:

  • 2005-10 Avalon
  • 2007-10 certain Camry
  • 2009-10 Corolla
  • 2008 - 2010 Highlander
  • 2009-10 Matrix
  • 2004-2009 Prius
  • 2010 Prius
  • 2009-10 RAV4
  • 2008-10 Sequoia
  • 2005-2010 Tacoma
  • 2007-10 Tundra
  • 2009-10 Venza

There had been an recall in the USA of 4.2 million vehicles because of problems with the gas pedals getting trapped under the floor mats which caused sudden acceleration. There were accidents which did include some fatalities.

If you do have a problem with your vehicle it might be difficult to get it fixed. Toyota is still determining what is causing the problem. If you own a vehicle listed in the recall above then contact Toyota here or call 1-888-869-6828.

There is now some concern with steering complaints for the 2009-2010 Corolla. Please do check with your dealer or contact Toyota if you have questions.
