Yesterday Toyota reported that they identified the UK Cars with a pedal flaw, which follows the Toyota Recall in the United States. The accelerator pedal safety recall has been a big headache for Toyota over the last couple of weeks, and will surely affect it’s future sales.
The UK Toyota recall list includes these models; Auris (Oct 2006 – 5 Jan 2010), Avensis (Nov 2008 – Dec 2009), Yaris (Nov 2005 – Sep 2009), Verso (Feb 2009 – 5 Jan 2010), iQ (Nov 2008 – Nov 2009), Corolla (Oct 2006 – Dec 2009), and Aygo (Feb 2005 – Aug 2009).
Sky News reports that details of 180,865 affected cars have been given to the Vehicle Licensing Agency and driver. They also reported that drivers of impaired vehicles would get their car fixed by an approved service centre.
