Toyota Owner Weighs In On Recent Recall

January 31, 2010, 6:48 PM by Nick Carbone

Toyota Owner Weighs In On Recent Recall
 
A widespread Toyota recall is affecting drivers of 11 popular models. KELOLAND Toyota owners are facing repairs on their cars.

With not one, but two Toyotas in his garage, Dennis Jons has reason to be worried about the Toyota recall.

"We enjoy these cars and wanna get this fixed quickly. We don't anticipate having an accident but we are very concerned," Jons said.

Jons is concerned that the cars he and his wife drive daily may accidentally speed up because the gas pedal could get stuck to the floormat.

"We've had very good success with Toyotas up to this point, and hopefully this will be taken care of soon," he said.

But how soon is the question Jons and many other Toyota owners are asking. Jons says he's waiting for his dealer to get the repair parts in.

"Whether we're first or last, we just hope it isn't too far down the line," Jons said.

Dealers also hope the repairs can be done quickly, because the cars have to be fixed before they can be sold.

And many of the recalled Toyotas are sitting idle at KELOLAND dealerships, awaiting their next stop in the repair shop. Once the cars return to the lots, Toyota can begin to repair its reputation.

"I think there's no doubt its been tarnished, but I don't anticipate it being anything Toyota couldn't recover from," Jons said.

Despite a sticky gas pedal, Jons says he plans to stick with his Toyotas.

"Assuming this problem gets fixed correctly, we'd no doubt continue to be loyal Toyota owners," he said.

Jons will be getting his Toyotas repaired next week. If you are wondering if your Toyota is part of the recall, you can see a list of affected models at the official Toyota Recall Web site.
