Toyota: Vehicles With No Sticky Pedals Are Safe

Wednesday, 03 Feb 2010 02:34 PM

Toyota says recalled vehicles that have not experienced problems with their accelerator pedals are safe to drive.

The automaker's comments come after Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood said that Toyota owners should stop driving recalled Toyota cars and trucks. LaHood later told reporters he misspoke, saying drivers of recalled vehicles should take them to dealerships to have them repaired.

Toyota, which has recalled 2.3 million vehicles in the U.S. due to the potential for sticky accelerators, says the problem is rare. The automaker is shipping a fix to dealerships around the country this week.
