Winston-Salem, NC Used Car Dealer Ready To Facilitate Toyota Recall

WINSTON SALEM, NC – Frank Myers Auto Maxx, a used car dealership and service department in Winston-Salem, NC, has agreed to facilitate the latest Toyota recall.

Toyota Motor Corp. said Tuesday it will recall 3.8 million vehicles in the United States, the company’s largest-ever U.S. recall, to address problems with a removable floor mat that could cause accelerators to get stuck and lead to a crash.

The recall will involve popular models such as the Toyota Camry, the top-selling passenger car in America, and the Toyota Prius, the best-selling gas-electric hybrid.

Robert Thomas, the Automotive Service Director at Frank Myers Auto Maxx in Winston-Salem, said that they are ready to handle the consumer demand. “Frank Myers Auto Maxx is, as usual, ready to handle this unfortunate situation with Toyota.”

Toyota said it was still working with officials with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to find a remedy to fix the problem and said owners could be notified about the recall as early as next week. Toyota spokesman Irv Miller said until the company finds a fix, owners should take out the removable floor mat on the driver’s side and not replace it.

Anybody that owns a Toyota product is encouraged to call the service department at Frank Myers Auto Maxx in Winston-Salem, NC as soon as possible. The number is (336) 831-0656 or you can visit the dealership website at
