Toyota and PSA Peugeot Citroen, under a partnership agreement share a
factory in the Czech Republic, where the Toyota Aygo, Peugeot 107 and
Citroen C1 are manufactured. Toyota has launched a preventative recall
campaign in Europe on 8 models to resolve a potential accelerator pedal
problem. Peugeot in Ireland have confirmed that only 42 of the 711 units
of Peugeot 107 model registered in Ireland since its launch in 2006 may
be affected by the current Toyota recall.
The risk of malfunction of the accelerator pedal is very rare and the
recall is a preventive measure. Only petrol models fitted with ESP as
standard or with a 2-tronic electronically controlled gearbox are
affected. From launch only 42 Peugeot 107 2-tronic models have been
registered in Ireland.
Customers who currently own Peugeot 107 2-tronic models will be
contacted by their Peugeot Dealer, in the coming days to arrange for
work to be completed at a convenient time. Repairs will be carried out
free of charge.
