Behold Zipcar’s press release:

Zipcar, Inc., the world’s largest car-sharing service, announced that, “The safety of our Zipsters is our top priority.”

The Company will not allow reservations for the recall-affected Toyota vehicles in the Zipcar fleet until the accelerator malfunction has been appropriately resolved by Toyota.

This recall impacts approximately 5 percent of the Zipcar fleet, specifically the 2009 and 2010 Toyota Matrix.

We will continue to monitor the recall closely and follow Toyota’s recommendations.

If Zipsters have questions about upcoming Zipcar reservations, they should contact Member Services at 1-866-4ZIPCAR (1-866-494-7227).

Sucks for the availability of Zipcars, but good for remaining alive.
