Oshawa, Ontario – General Motors will temporarily halt sales of the Pontiac Vibe, a model based on the Toyota Matrix, in response to actions by Toyota Canada regarding vehicles that may be covered by a recall for a sticking throttle pedal.

Although General Motors did not carry the Pontiac brand forward following the creation of the “New GM,” the California-built Vibe continues into the 2010 model year.

A GM spokesperson said that there have been no customer complaints, and that a recall will be issued for the Vibe once the company receives recall information from Toyota.
