Toyota says redesigned gas pedals are ready

Claims it fixes recall issue, still working for fix of existing components

Associated Press

ERLANGER, Kentucky – Toyota says production has begun on redesigned accelerator pedals that fix problems that led to a major recall of its eight car models.

Toyota worked on the design with CTS Corp., which supplied the pedals in the 2.3 million recalled vehicles. Pedals featuring the new design are in full production at CTS, Toyota says.

It was found that the faulty pedals could lead to unintended acceleration in rare instances.

The automaker also says it is working with the supplier to test modifications to existing pedals and plans to roll those out as soon as possible.
