Toyota Recall Accident Lawyer News: Toyota President Blames Communication, Not Defective Vehicles, for Crisis
In a surprise statement to market analysts April 7, the chairperson of the Toyota Company, Mr. Akio Toyoda, indicated he feels “communications,” not defective vehicles, were to blame for the current situation in which Toyota finds itself. Toyota is experiencing a recall of over 8 million vehicles, many reports of sudden or unintended acceleration by Toyota drivers and intense scrutiny from government officials including congressional panels and the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
