Toyota dealers prepare for recall rush

HENRICO COUNTY, VA (WWBT)--If you own one of the recalled Toyotas the first thing you need to do is wait for a formal letter from the company informing you that you are a part of the recall.

Once you get that letter, plan to head to your dealer, which will be working around the clock to solve this problem. That problem lies in some brake systems and other gas pedals.

McGeorge Toyota estimates that their dealership alone has close to 25,000 customers that could be impacted by the recall.

They plan to fix those vehicles first, followed by recalled cars bought at other dealerships and then finally the Camrys, Corollas, Priuses and others on their lot still waiting to be sold.

They already have plans to ramp up staffing and hours of operation. McGeorge is waiting to get three different parts to satisfy all the recalls. Once the work begins, they feel prepared to take on the rush.

If you own a Toyota that isn't under the recall and just need general service like an oil change, McGeorge claims that their service department will still be able to handle every single one of those calls as well.
