New reports from Toyota on a landmark “runaway Prius” case illustrate how tense relations are between the giant car company and some of its drivers who are reporting problems on the road.
Amid many claims of “sudden or unintended acceleration,” Toyota has issued a recall of over six million vehicles. They are investigating any causes of faulty acceleration in its product line including many different models such as the popular Toyota Camry and Toyota Avalon sedans as well as larger vehicles like the Toyota Tundra, Tacoma and RAV4. The Toyota Prius is subject to its own recall information with debate on safety issues regarding braking.
By now, almost everyone has heard about the huge Toyota recall involving more than six million vehicles that centers on the safety issue of sudden or unintended acceleration, but not everyone knows the entire story. A recent New York Times report shows that acceleration problems are more widespread and more common in the industry than some auto experts make them out to be.
