Japan urges Toyota to secure consumer confidence

Japan's trade minister is urging Toyota Motor Corp. to secure the confidence of car buyers in the wake of massive global recalls.
"The scale of the recalls is huge. The situation is serious. It points to the possible dangers a global economy can bring," Trade Minister Masayuki Naoshima told reporters Friday.
"I would like Toyota to respond properly to secure consumer confidence."
Toyota _ the world's largest automaker _ has recalled 7.65 million vehicles in the U.S. over problems with gas pedals and floor mats. It recalled 75,500 vehicles in China for the same acceleration pedal problem.
The auto giant also said it would recall vehicles in Europe due to the accelerator problem, but said the number of recalled vehicles has yet to be determined.
