Toyota to restart U.S. production on Feb. 8

Toyota has announced that the recently announced halt in production will be limited to this week only, as originally scheduled. “We will begin production again next week,” Jim Lentz, president of Toyota Motor Sales U.S.A., noting that production will re-commence February 8.

The stoppage was announced last week as Toyota outlined plans to suspend delivery of eight models which were identified as part of a safety recall late last month.

Earlier today, Toyota announced that it has a fix for 2.3 million vehicles susceptible to accelerator pedal sticking.
