Toyota Suspending Sales Due to Pedals

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/35086922/ns/business-autos

Check out the above link. The recall last week involving the 8 Toyota models has now prompted Toyota to suspend sales of these vehicles due to faulty gas pedals. This does not involve the recall for floor mats.

because we have already been recalled for the floor mats.. This is for the entire gas pedal assembly getting stuck



This is sure going to hurt Toyota, financially.

I talked to toyta today in the service department and they said the floormat thing is crap. if you bring it in they just put a smaller gas pedal on it or cut the pedal. The new recall is freaking alot of people out they said, everybody and their mom is coming in saying there car is doing weird stuff now. It is like if you tell some I think your getting sick .. then they think they are sick

See post #6. While it is on good authority I really wonder how much of it is fact.

My folks have an 08 Camry and its on there. In-laws have an 09 Rav-4 its on there too.

Our other car is an 08 Matrix which doesnt appear to be affected, for now... I assume it wont be as the Matrix was redesigned in 09'. We bought one of the last new 1st gens for this reason.

Reminicient of the claims against Audi in the 80s. Nothing was ever proven faulty, well except the nuts behind the wheel. Everyone was coming out of the woodwork that it was the cars fault when any accident occurred. Who knows how much revenue they lost.....

Yeah I'm sure hope it is an easy fix and doesnt hurt them too bad, Toyota is an awesome company and it would suck for them to have to start saving pennies here and there through shotty parts and labor just because this hurt them financially.

You know thats what happens, big companies take a big hit and then they have to find all areas where they can cut back to try and get back on top. I just hope it isnt that big of a hit, they are one of the last companies that makes quality vehicles that last a long time and hold their value.

I'll be praying for Toyota

TOKYO (Reuters) - Toyota Motor Corp (7203.T) plans to cut auto parts procurement costs by around 30 percent over three years to help it regain profitability, media said on Tuesday.
Toyota has asked its suppliers to cut prices of some parts by 30-40 percent for cars that will hit the market by 2013, the Asahi daily said. The Nikkei business daily also said Toyota plans to switch to less expensive materials and parts.
Toyota spokesman Takanori Yokoi said the automaker had made "various suggestions including cost reductions" to suppliers on Monday, but he declined to disclose details.
Toyota, which has forecast its second straight annual operating loss, plans to overhaul its car designs to help cut costs, the two newspapers said.
Toyota's request for a 30 percent reduction in costs -- the biggest in 10 years -- comes as the automaker is trying to sharpen its price competitiveness in emerging markets, the Asahi said.
Growing concern over the yen's continued strength is also behind the move, the Asahi said.
Toyota's shares gained 1.6 percent to 3,780 yen while the broader Nikkei 225 index .N225 advanced 1 percent.
