Toyota fixing 50,000 sticky pedals a day

Toyota’s got its sticky-pedal fixing into high gear, with global dealers repairing an impressive 50,000 vehicles per day. So far, 225,000 of the several million recalled vehicles have already been repaired. Going all-in on the fix was the only choice left for Toyota, anything less could be seen as a lax attitude toward safety, and brand perception would be damaged even more.

While there’s still a long way to go to finish all the fixes for the various massive recalls of Toyota vehicles, there has been some good news too. The Prius is still winning awards as 2010 Car of the Year and overall customer complaints have been very low for the past decade. On the other hand, some members of American Congress are wanting Akio Toyoda, president of the company, to pay a visit to the States for what’s likely to be a fairly major telling off.
