2009 Pontiac Vibe Added to Toyota Recall
UPDATE: Both the 2009 and 2010 Pontiac Vibes have been included in the accelerator recall.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has added the 2009 Pontiac Vibe to a recall notice associated with Toyota’s recall of 2.3 million vehicles, which was announced yesterday. Like the Toyotas, the Vibe is being recalled for a faulty accelerator pedal that can wear and eventually become stuck, leading to unintended acceleration.
Toyota has not yet offered a fix for the problem. We will update this site as soon as we learn more about when a solution can be expected. For now, owners are being told to bring their cars in only if they’ve already experienced issues with the gas pedals.
The specific number of Vibes recalled was not released, but it includes all Vibes from the 2009 model year.
