Toyota finds a way to unstick pedals

City A.M. Reporter
TOYOTA, the carmaker, has come up with a solution to fix the millions of cars it recalled because their accelerator pedals could become stuck, dealers and a US federal official have said.

Word of the move came as French car maker Peugeot said it was recalling cars it built with Toyota at a plant the companies operate in the Czech Republic, widening a recall that has affected cars in the US, Canada, China and Europe.

Toyota presented a plan for repairing the potentially sticky pedals to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, a Transportation Department official said.

A Toyota spokesman said the company would send letters to owners, explaining what the group was doing to try to rectify the problems.
