Peugeot-Citroen Recalls 97,000 Cars Made in Toyota Joint Venture

The French automaker PSA said Monday it would recall 97,000 Peugeot 107s and Citroen C1s made in a Czech factory it shares with Japanese automaker Toyota.

The move comes after the Japanese giant Friday pulled millions of cars around the world due to faulty accelerator pedals.

In a statement, Peugeot said the recall concerned cars "made in a factory shared" with Toyota in the Czech Republic and concerned "models constructed jointly" with the Japanese firm.

It said the recall was a precautionary measure and affected European car owners who would be informed of the problem by mail.
