BRUSSELS (AP) - Toyota's massive recall over gas pedal problems now reaches all the way to Europe.
Toyota says it's extending a car recall across the Atlantic, but is still checking how many vehicles use the parts involved in the U.S. recall.
The world's largest car maker has suspended U.S. sales of eight models to fix faulty gas pedals that could stick and cause acceleration without warning. Millions of cars are being recalled.
The initial recall covered U.S. sales of models including the Corolla, Camry, Matrix and Tundra. That's now been expanded to include another 1.09 million vehicles in the U.S. The five models affected included the Highlander, Venza and the Pontiac Vibe.
As for Europe, the company says it will be talking directly with its customers there. The company is already using different parts in models it is now producing in Europe.
Toyota says it is recalling 75,500 vehicles in China for the same gas pedal problem .
