PSA Peugeot Citroën recalls tens of thousands of cars made in Kolín

The automobile manufacturer PSA Peugeot Citroën is recalling tens of thousands of Peugeot 107 and Citroën C1 vehicles produced in their plant in Kolín. PSA informed the media on Saturday that the vehicles, which are only made in Kolín, would be called in for repair due to suspicions of faulty accelerators. The move follows only a day after Toyota, which shares the plant with PSA, announced it would be recalling 1.8 million vehicles, including the Aygo model manufactured in Kolín, for the same reason. The company said that the recall would apply to “less than 100,000” vehicles. The accelerator pedal problem has forced Toyota to recall eight million cars since last year, more than it sold in 2009.
