Scientists of NASA space and aeronautics will be helping Toyota analyze its electronic throttles to check if they are behind unintended acceleration.

Toyota, world’s largest automobile maker has to recall around 8.5 million vehicles globally in the past few months. After this incident they have realized that apart from monetary losses, their brand reputation and customer confidence is seriously hampered”, informs Anthony Tribunella, Director of Operations at Auto Relief Group.

This reminds of some of our clients who came to us saying that they need auto loan modification as they spent a lot of money to check the quality of their vehicles. They wanted to pay lower monthly payments to save some dollars every month. Thus, we successfully completed their loan modifications by negotiating and renegotiating with the banks and other financial institutions and finally helped our clients pay less”, says Anthony.
