Toyota announced on January 21, 2010 that it was recalling 2.3 million vehicles to correct sticking accelerator pedals. The recall has now turned into a crisis with Toyota halting sales of the recalled vehicles earlier in the week. To complicate things even more, the recall is now going to spread into Europe and China.

The recall on January 21, 2010 included over 2.3 million vehicles and included the popular RAV4, Corolla, Matrix, Avalon, Camry, Highlander,
Tundra, and Sequoia models.

Toyota has now announced that it will recall an unknown number of vehicles in Europe. Production will continue as normal in Europe because different parts are already being used in the new vehicles, unlike in the United States.

The recall in China will be for the Toyota RAV4 and will start in February. According to Toyota, 75,552 of the sport-utility vehicles will be recalled in China.

Toyota is unsure how many vehicles will be affected in Europe. The problematic pedals that are manufactured by CTS Corporation, based in Elkhart, Indiana.
