Toyota unveils solution to gas pedal problem

(HawaiiNewsNow) - Toyota owners, heads up. Dealers should be getting parts to fix faulty gas pedals later this week.

The repair involves reinforcing the pedal assembly in order to eliminate the excess friction that has caused faulty gas pedals to stick.

The company recalled 4.2 million vehicles for this problem, and consumer confidence may be waning.

"This is going to hurt them, there's no doubt about it," said Joe Wiesenfelder of cars.com. "It will shake the confidence of consumers, maybe even owners, in the quality issue."

Toyota will start contacting customers to let them know when to bring their vehicles in for the repair.

The automakers says it will cover all costs related to the fix.
