Toyota Recall Not Fixing Some Vehicles In North Carolina

The National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) has received more than 60 reports from Toyota owners who claim they have experienced sudden acceleration events after having their cars fixed for the very same problem. The safety agency is in the process of contacting each of the owners to gather more details about the reports. Many safety experts and those in the industry believe that Toyota's problem is electronic and not mechanical as the largest automaker in the world has claimed. The recall involves installing a metal piece the size of a postage stamp and shortening the length of the accelerator. As I have mentioned in prior posts, Toyota so far has recalled over 8 million vehicles.

Many of those who have been seriously injured or killed in sudden acceleration events have sued Toyota for selling a dangerous and defective vehicle. Click here to see a copy of one of the complaints. One hot issue in all of these lawsuits has been the information contained in each vehicle's black box. Each Toyota has a black box, like those on airplanes, that records various data when the vehicle is in a crash - such as speed, whether the accelerator was depressed or whether the brake pedal was depressed. Toyota has fought tooth and nail to keep from having to turn over any of the specifics about the black boxes in these cases. Toyota has settled most of these cases out of court, but several are pending. This author thinks Toyota is afraid to have their black box information made public for a very good reason.
