Toyota Tells Dealers Parts on Way to Fix Pedals

Monday, 01 Feb 2010 07:08 AM

Toyota Motor Corp. is telling dealers that they should get parts to fix sticky gas pedals later this week. But the 4.2 million customers affected by a large recall may have to wait a while for repairs.

Toyota tells dealers in an e-mail sent early Monday that they will get shims to repair springs in the gas pedal systems that have been weakened. But repairs will have to wait until technicians are trained.

The e-mail was obtained by The Associated Press. The repair plan will be officially announced later Monday.

Toyota has recalled 4.2 million cars and trucks worldwide because gas pedal systems may stick. The company says the problem is rare.

Government regulators told Toyota last week that they were satisfied with the repair plan.
