Toyota announced that parts to fix sticking accelerator pedals will be arriving at Toyota dealerships by the end of the week. For owners of 2009 and 2010 Pontiac Vibes — a mechanical twin to the Toyota Matrix — GM says in a press release that the automaker and Toyota are sorting out how soon parts will be available for service at GM dealerships.
 
Owners can expect to be contacted by GM when a fix is available. There are 99,293 2009 and 2010 Vibes in the United States and Canada included in Toyota’s sticking accelerator pedal and floormat entrapment recalls. You can contact Pontiac at 800-620-7668 or visit GM’s owner center at www.gmownercenter.com.
