Ford Halts Some China Production on Pedal Woes

Thursday, 28 Jan 2010 09:56 AM

Ford Motor Co. has halted production of some full-sized commercial vehicles in China because they contain gas pedals built by the same company behind the accelerators in Toyota Motor Corp.'s recent recall.

Ford spokesman Said Deep says the diesel version of its Transit Classic built by a Chinese joint venture contains accelerators built by Elkhart, Ind.-based CTS Corp. He says the vehicles began production in December. Only about 1,600 have been produced.

Deep says they are the only Ford vehicles that contain pedals made by CTS. He says Ford is investigating to determine its next step and the vehicles have not been recalled.

The vehicles are made by Ford's Jiangling Motors Co. joint venture in Nanchang in southeastern China.
