Toyota to Idle Two U.S. Assembly Plants Amid Recalls

Tuesday, 16 Feb 2010 11:18 AM

Toyota says it plans to idle production at assembly plants in Texas and Kentucky while it grapples with massive recalls in the United States.

Toyota spokesman Mike Goss says a plant in San Antonio, Texas, has scheduled production breaks for the weeks of March 15 and April 12. Goss says a plant in Georgetown, Ky., has scheduled a non-production day on Feb. 26 and may not produce vehicles on three more days in March and April.

He says Toyota is adjusting production so it does not build up too much inventory for dealers. Toyota has recalled 8.5 million vehicles around the world to address problems with gas pedals, floor mats and brakes.

Toyota says its workers will be retained and will receive additional training.
