Peugeot Citroen is recalling about 90,000 cars amid concerns they have faulty accelerator pedals.
The move follows affects the Peugeot 107 and Citroen C1, sister cars of the Toyota Aygo, which is affected by a sticking throttle problem that has sparked a global recall of several Toyota models.
However, only 36 Citroen C1s are affected in the UK, as the problem is specific to the niche selling petrol models fitted with ESP. Concerned Citroen owners should contact 0844 4633500.
In total, Toyota is recalling more than four million cars with the problem.
Estimates suggest that, in the US, the sudden acceleration of Toyota vehicles has been linked to 19 deaths in the past decade.
Peugeot Citroen has reported it is not aware of any injuries caused by the problem in the vehicles it is recalling, which were all made from 2005 to mid-2009.
