TOYOTA AUSTRALIA HAS today confirmed that Australian-delivered and built models are unaffected by the carmaker's international recalls.
The announcement comes on the heels of massive Toyota recalls in North America, Europe and China, due to sticking accelerator pedals.
In a statement today, Toyota Australia said that accelerator pedals for Toyota vehicles sold in Australia, and those manufactured locally for export, are provided by a different supplier and therefore remain unaffected.
In the US, Toyota has suspended sales of eight models, including the Corolla, Highlander (Kluger), Camry, Avalon, Tundra, Matrix and Sequoia.
Across North America, nearly 2.3 million vehicles have been recalled. Internationally, the number is expected to top four million.
Toyota said that production of its full range - including the eight suspended models - continues, with a new pedal design now being installed in all affected models.
