    The Toyota recall expanded on Thursday with the iconic automobile maker recalling cars in Europe and China.
    The gas pedals on some models can get stuck, forcing Toyota to put the brakes on the vehicles. The largest automaker in the world has recalled more than 2.3 million vehicles.

    The company, according to the Associated Press, has started to ship parts to dealers to fix the faulty gas pedals, but it is unclear when vehicles would be repaired.

    Even Ford Motor Co. has felt the pain of the recall. Ford this week called for an end on production of some full-sized commercial vehicles because they have accelerators built with the same parts supplier as in the Toyota recall, the AP reports.

    Ford's playing it safe.. pretty obvious at this point that it wasn't manufacturing defect by CTS but rather a design problem by the Japanese...
