Toyota Motor Corp. said Wednesday it will replace accelerator pedals on about 4 million recalled vehicles in the United States because the pedals can get stuck in the floor mats.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration confirmed to me on January 26th that “an unspecified number of 2009-10 Pontiac Vibes, designed and built by Toyota for General Motors' now-discontinued Pontiac brand. Vibe is similar to the Toyota Matrix that's part of the recall."
Go here to read more about the Pontiac recall.
Here’s the Toyota recall notice issued last week by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
You’ll see the agency
makes no mention of the Pontiac Vibe in its letter, however Toyota
does in its letter.
