Toyota is recalling 270,000 vehicles in Canada—and about two million in the U.S.—to address a problem with accelerator pedals that stick. There are eight models affected by the suspension and recall, including the 2009-2010 models of the Corolla, Matrix, and Camry. As part of the plan, Toyota is halting production at seven factories on the week of February 1, including the Cambridge and Woodstock plants. This recall comes just months after Toyota recalled 4.2 million vehicles due to gas pedals becoming stuck under floor mats, causing the car the accelerate.
