Maker of Toyota Recall Part Says Incidents Are Few

Wednesday, 27 Jan 2010 03:32 PM

The supplier of gas pedals used in Toyota's eight recalled car and trucks says it knows of only a few cases of drivers having problems with accelerators.

CTS Corp. says Toyota told it about fewer than a dozen cases in which drivers struggled with pedals. The supplier also says it is not aware of any cases where the pedal became stuck after drivers pushed it down, potentially causing unwanted acceleration.

Toyota has decided to shut down production of recent models, like Camry and Corolla sedans, while it fixes the faulty gas pedals. It says it's rare for pedals to get stuck, but it could happen.

CTS says it is working with Toyota to design a new pedal.
