Toyota U.S. sales halt deals blow to image, earnings

Toyota, the worlds biggest auto maker has stopped US sales of some of its most popular models to fix a very serious design flaw that could cause many car accidents. The company has had problems with faulty gas pedals that stick and cause unintended acceleration.

Needless to say, that is very dangerous. Toyota has known about the problem for several years but apparently has been unable to fix it.

So Toyota decided to shut down six of its North American car factories and stop selling the following models:

  • Rav4
  • Corolla
  • Camry
  • Matrix hatchback
  • Avalon large sedan
  • Highlander crossover
  • Tundra pickup
  • Sequoia SUV

Several months ago Toyota recalled 4.2 million cars because their gas pedals could become trapped under floor mats, causing sudden acceleration. That caused several crashes and deaths.
