A Toyota executive says dealers have so far reinforced the sticking accelerator on more than 220,000 recalled vehicles, with repairs continuing at a rate of about 50,000 vehicles a day.
"Nothing is more important to Toyota than the safety and reliability of our vehicles, and right now we are completely focused on fixing the vehicles that have been affected under this recall," Bob Carter, Toyota group vice president said at the Chicago Auto Show on Wednesday.
He said some dealers have been open around the clock while others are carrying out the repairs at offsite facilities.
Carter added that the voluntary recall of the 2010 Prius and Lexus HS 250h models to update braking software, in response to complaints about braking problems, also is proceeding.
