Toyota Dealerships Waiting On Recall Repair Parts

Posted: Updated:

DENISON, TX - Toyota dealerships in Texoma are getting ready to fix dozens of vehicles recalled by the company last week. Katy Blakey spoke with employees at Red River Toyota about how they are dealing with the situation.     

Mechanics at the dealership are ready, telling KTEN they get asked about the recalled gas pedal everyday. But they are unable to do anything about it until Toyota sends all the parts needed.

The mechanics have already been trained, and they got word from Toyota Tuesday that the parts would be arriving Thursday. They're waiting on a small piece of steel that will fix the gas pedal, and prevent the accelerator from sticking.

"We are getting a lot more calls, more information calls than concerns," said Stan Starnes, Vice President of Operations at Red River Toyota. "[They are] just wanting to know when to come in and how to schedule an appointment."

If you own one of the recalled Toyotas call your local dealership and set up a time to have the gas pedal fixed. Red River Toyota thinks they'll be able to start repairing vehicles at the end of this week or the first of next week. The repair process should only take about 15 to 30 minutes.
