Hertz, Avis and Enterprise suspend rental of Toyotas affected by recalls

Rental car companies Hertz and Enterprise announced yesterday that they will be joining Avis in temporarily halting rentals of Toyota vehicles affected by the recent recalls. Enterprise Holdings said that it will remove all Toyota and Pontiac Vibe vehicles under recall for sticking accelerator pedals from its North American fleet.

“We recognize that these actions will inconvenience a number of our current rental customers and may impact the availability of vehicles in the coming weeks,” Matt Darrah, executive vice president of North American operations for Enterprise Holdings, said in a statement. “We are moving as quickly as possible to minimize any disruption to our customers.”

Hertz said it will also suspend rentals of Toyotas that have been recalled and that the company is working with Toyota to make repairs as soon as possible.

Avis Budget group said that it will pull 20,000 Toyota models until a fix is available.
