Attention, Toyota drivers: If yours is one of 2.3 million Toyotas recalled for repair of a faulty gas pedal, Ray LaHood says you should park it until your dealer fixes it.
[2/4/10 update: see today's story with reader comments.]
"My advice is...stop driving it. Take it to the dealer" so that the gas pedals can be fixed, LaHood, the U.S. transportation secretary, told a House committee in Washington today. Toyota has begun shipping repair kits to its dealers.
Do you drive one of the recalled cars? Have you had any problems with the gas pedal? Will you keep driving it, or will you heed LaHood's warning?
I'd like to hear from you.
Please call me (919-829-4527) or e-mail me (email@example.com) to talk about your Toyota, your concerns and your plans.
Be sure to leave your daytime contact info so I can reach you.
