Following massive recalls because of sticking gas pedals, Toyota is now suspending sales of eight vehicle models. The unprecedented move comes after the automaker recalled two-point-three million cars and trucks to fix the problem. Toyota said the suspension is temporary as the company works to finalize a remedy for the gas pedal problem. At the same time, the automaker will shut down North American production in Canada, Indiana, Kentucky and Texas due to the suspension, but will not shut down any other plants. Toyota officials said Lexus and Scion vehicles are not affected. Other models which are not included in the suspension are the Toyota Prius, Tacoma, and Camry hybrids.
