ToyotaToyota Motor Corp is recalling more than 400,000 vehicles in Saudi Arabia that were produced from 2006 to 2010 due to concerns about unintended acceleration, the company and Saudi Arabia's trade ministry said.

Toyota and its agent in Saudi Arabia, Abdul Latif Jameel Co, will install brake override systems in the affected vehicles, the Saudi Arabian Ministry of Commerce and Industry said in a statement. This is the second country where installation of the brake override system to prevent runaway Toyota vehicles has been required.

Toyota said it recalled the vehicles in Saudi Arabia to "ensure customers' peace of mind" and after the trade ministry's "strong request" that software for a brake override system be installed, Toyota said to Reuters.
