Toyota Announces Plan to Replace Accelerators in Secondary Recall

March 22, 2010.  The New York Times reported that Toyota, in response to a series of unintended acceleration in vehicles that have already been through the recall process, announced that its dealerships would provide replacement accelerator pedals to owners unhappy with repairs.  The dealers are to provide replacement pedals only if a customer’s car had already been repaired and the owner asked for it.

The memo (addressed to dealers, service managers and parts managers) was reissued Thursday, March 18, and contained part numbers for the replacement pedals and the procedure dealers should follow.  

The vehicles involved in the pedal repair campaign are the 2005-10 Avalon; 2007-10 Camry and Tundra; 2009-10 Corolla, Matrix and RAV4; 2008-10 Sequoia and 2010 Highlander.
