Dealership waits for approval


The world's largest automaker is sticking with it's decision to stop the sales of eight of their models.

While the recall involves faulty gas pedals, the General Manager of Toyota of Wilmington says they have yet to have a customer come in with gas pedal issues.

John Futrell says they've moved their affected inventory to a separate lot.

In the 21 years he's had the Toyota dealership, he has not experienced a problem like this.

"We're all about wanting to get to get these cars and get them repaired," said Futrell. "And right now we're in this holding pattern and that's what's frustrating."

"It's waiting for the Federal government to approve the repairs so we can get on the task of getting the vehicles repaired," he said.

Toyota customers aren't the only ones affected by this recall.

Rental companies like Budget and Avis are removing all of the Toyota vehicles in the recall from their fleets in the U.S.
