|US NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID:||00V252|
|Potential Number Of Units Affected:||33,821|
Certain passenger vehicles and light duty pickup trucks fitted with speed control devices at Gulf States Toyota's Vehicle Processing Center or installed by certain Toyota dealers in Gulf States' region (Arkansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Oklahoma, and Texas) are equipped with an E-clip, which holds the speed control assembly to the accelerator linkage, that could break. If the E-clip fails, the speed control attachment could come off, causing the speed control to stop working. The loose attachment could cause the accelerator to stick, preventing normal stopping and handling of the vehicle.
Gulf States' dealers will replace the E-clip with a cotter pin. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began during September 2000. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Gulf States at 1-800-444-1074.
