Toyota dealerships awaiting parts to fix recalled vehicles

BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - Local Toyota dealerships say they're ready to assist customers with recalled vehicles.

They're simply waiting for the parts to arrive.

Bruce Limbaugh of Limbaugh Toyota in Birmingham says parts could arrive as early as Thursday or Friday of this week.

"And we will schedule it not to dissimilar to going to the dentist," says Limbaugh, who added,  "We'll set up a length of time and get it set aside and we're actively seeking some opportunites to do some additional things for those customers."

The dealership has also assigned employees to help with the 50 to 100 telephone calls a day  from concerned customers.

Up to 16 technicians will be assigned to handle the repairs at Limbaugh. And if necessary, Limbaugh Toyota will consider extending business hours.
