The National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) has announced that it is continuing to receive unintended sudden acceleration complaints from Toyota drivers – even from those whose cars have been recalled and supposedly fixed.
More than 60 consumers have made sudden acceleration complaints to the NHTSA for events that occurred after they took their recalled vehicle to their Toyota dealer and received the required fix. California’s Congressional Representative Henry Waxman told the media that Toyota’s fix may be “false reassurances”. He said, “They are false reassurances that people are getting from Toyota if, after the recall, after their car is supposed to be fixed, there is still this problem of sudden acceleration.”
Toyota continues to maintain that it is confident its vehicles are safe. Toyota’s sudden acceleration problem has led to about 815 vehicle crashes and 19 deaths since 1999. While these accidents involve only a small percentage of the Toyota vehicles on American streets, each of these crashes is a preventable accident that occurred in a vehicle that is supposed to protect its occupants – not put their lives at risk.
Car wrecks are expensive in many ways. It is not fair for an accident victim to pay for damages caused by a defective vehicle. If you have been injured in an accident caused by the sudden acceleration of a Toyota, the attorneys at Allan, Flatt, Ballidis and Leslie are here for you.
