Toyota to Recall 30,000 Vehicles in Mexico

Toyota sold almost 52,000 vehicles in Mexico in 2009

In order to adjust accelerator pedals on seven models, Toyota will recall an estimated 30,000 vehicles in Mexico, company's Mexico sales director said Feb. 3.

"We've estimated a possible recall of 30,000 vehicles," Adolfo Hegewisch told a news conference here.

No specific problem had been reported in Mexico and no customer's life was at risk, but the company was acting in coordination with Mexican authorities, Hegewisch said.

Mexican customers would be informed of the recall from February 8, when parts would be delivered here, and vehicles would be chosen according to their production date and batch, a statement said on Feb. 3.

Those concerned would receive a free installation of a piece of high-precision reinforced steel in the accelerator pedal assembly.

The models to be recalled in Mexico are: Radford, Matrix, Camry, Highlander, Tundra, Sequoia and Corolla, made on dates between 2007 and 2010.
