Accelerator Problems Focus of Expanded Recall by Toyota
Toyota has been plagued with problems concerning jammed accelerators for months, & the trend seems to continue. Recently, the automaker announced that it is recalling 2.3 million vehicles in order to correct the problem that has been haunting them.
It remains to be seen whether or not the modifications being done by Toyota correct the accelerator problems. The electronic throttle control system used by the automaker is blamed by consumers who have experienced themselves the uncontrolled acceleration that occurs. Safety groups seem to agree with these consumers, and believe that several factors contribute to the faulty accelerators. In fact, these groups believe that unintentional acceleration is due to a combination of things, including the electronic throttle control system.
Last year, a family of four was killed when their car suddenly accelerated while driving down the highway, causing the driver to lose control of the car before it crashed. This incident thrust the accelerator problem in to the international spotlight, and 911 voice recordings of one of the passengers indicate that the accelerator had jammed in the frightening and horrendous last few seconds before the fatal crash occurred. California auto accident lawyers hope that the cause of unintentional acceleration can be quickly determined by Toyota, so that the problem can be solved before more people are seriously injured or killed.
