Toyota has issued a “progress report” detailing its work on the sticking accelerator pedals, floor mat pedal entrapment, and anti-lock brake system (ABS) recalls. To date, more than three million vehicles have been involved among the three major recalls.
According to Toyota, it has addressed seventy percent of the approximately 2.3 million Toyota and Lexus vehicles recalled due to sticking accelerator pedals. Among the vehicles involved in the floor mat recall, Toyota has remedied approximately 27 percent of the 5.4 million vehicles while resolving both issues concurrently in 730,000 vehicles. Lastly, 75 percent of the 145,000 recalled 2010 Toyota Prius and Lexus models have had their anti-lock brake systems (ABS) updated by Toyota.
“Toyota and Lexus dealers continue to make significant progress in servicing customers’ recalled vehicles as quickly and conveniently as possible, and we appreciate their extraordinary efforts,” Steve St. Angelo, Toyota Chief Quality Officer for North America, said in a release. “Over the past three months, Toyota has delivered on its commitment to listen to the voices of customers more intently and respond more swiftly and effectively to their needs. Above all, we want to thank our customers for their patience as we implement the recall remedies, and we won’t let them down.”
