Toyota Fixes Over 3 Million Recalled Vehicles

As the pressure has somewhat diminished as far as Toyota's quality issues are concerned, the carmaker continues its recall campaign, with word coming from Torrance being that so far, over 3 million recalled vehicles have been fixed.

The number includes 1.6 million sticking accelerator pedals fixes, 1.5 million floor mat pedal entrapment and 115,000 program updates to the anti-lock brake systems (ABS) in certain 2010 Prius and Lexus models.

“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,” said Steve St. Angelo, Toyota Chief Quality Officer for North America.

“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.”

Out of all the vehicles recalled, 732,000 have received both the floor mat and sticking pedal fixes. According to Toyota, 70 percent of the sticking pedal modifications have been completed, with an average of 120,000 cars repaired each week.

Of the 5.4 million vehicles that were recalled for floor mat entrapment, the first in Toyota's line of recalls, only 27 percent have been fixed. 75 percent of the ABS program updates have already been done to 147,500 Prius and Lexus models.
