What We Think About the 2.3 Million Cars Recalled by Toyota

Sticking Accelerator Pedals is the reason for the latest Toyota Recall of 2.3 million vehicles. That’s a lot of cars. This recall took place late Thursday, when ABC News did some internal investigations and let Toyota know they were about to make these investigations public. Sean Kane is a safety expert who mentioned to ABC News that he believed the latest recall might not solve all of Toyota’s problems.
He went onto say that last fall Toyota had claimed to have fixed the acceleration issue. However since then, over 60 more incidents of Runaway Toyota’s have been documented. 4 people lost their lives in Southlake, Texas one day after Christmas when a 2008 Toyota sped off the road, went through a fence as the vehicle landed upside down in a pond.
They found the cars floor mats in the trunk of the vehicle, where they were advised to place these in response to the earlier recall. Federal Safety Investigators have now taken a role in the recall. Back in November, Toyota Executives mentioned that the floor mats being recalled in certain models as well as a certain redesign of the Accelerator Pedal would prevent any further issues from happening in the future.
Executives at the Toyota Corporation denied that there were any electrical problems or any on-board computer malfunctions and that there is no evidence to prove any of these theories. However the Runaway Vehicle reports that continue to pour in are starting to shatter their stories, as each event weakens it. Kane mentioned that there are continued incidents that can’t be blamed on floor mats.
Another report came in of someone who didn’t even have their foot on the gas at all, but the car continued to go faster and faster. Luckily he wasn’t injured and managed to get the car to a Toyota Dealer to explain things to them. So if you own a Toyota, my advice would be to take it in and see if your model is affected by the recall, and ask them to perform all the required tests.
