Washington DC February 5, 2010; The AIADA newsletter reported that according to the LA Times, Toyota dealers resumed selling vehicles Thursday that were pulled from the sales lot to address sudden-acceleration problems.

Toyota stopped sales of eight models – including its top-selling Camry and Corolla – on Jan. 26, saying the gas pedals could get stuck and cause runaway acceleration. The automaker also shut down production of the vehicles for a week while it examined how to fix the problem, which it attributed to wear on the pedal system.

"We now have more than enough parts at dealers to take care of the flow of repairs. Dealers may sell a new car if the repair is made," said Mike Michels, a Toyota spokesman. "There is no single point in time when the stop sale would be lifted. It will be car by car."

Automotive News also reported on Friday that Toyota is considering a recall of its 2010 Prius model in the U.S. to address complaints about slipping brakes. The problem reportedly occurs in the third-generation Prius, which went on sale in the United States, Japan and Europe last year.

Transportation agencies in the United States and Japan have been compiling dozens of complaints that the car's brakes give way under certain conditions.
