Local Toyota Dealer Deals With Recall

Posted by wlpo on January 27, 2010

Toyota has suspended the sale of eight models including the Corola and Avalon because of the potential pedal issue.

Bill Walsh Jr. of Bill Walsh Toyota says they’ve pulled off the lot about 40 percent of their cars because of the recall.  He says customers who’ve called his dealership haven’t reported any problems but he applauds Toyota for not sweeping the potential problem “under the carpet”.

Walsh says a part to fix the issue has already been found but needs to first be approved by the National Transportation Safety Board.  When that happens, customers can start bringing their cars in for the repair which Walsh says takes less than a half hour.
