Many Toyota dealers across the east have suspended sales of a good portion of their inventory after Toyota put the brakes on U.S. sales of several models to fix a problem that could cause the accelerator pedals to stick.
In Kinston, nearly half of the inventory at Massey Toyota was moved off the lot. Workers spent much of Wednesday checking certain models to examine whether the accelerator pedal problem exists.
Toyota is also schooling dealers on how to assist owners with vehicles listed in the recall.
Management at Toyota dealers is asking anyone with one of the recalled vehicles to head to a dealership so the vehicle can be checked out.
