Toyota recall followup

August 12, 2010

Headlines are suggesting that the recall of millions of vehicles for unintended acceleration by Toyota may have been the result of “user error.” Yet, these articles actually explain that problems were found. Preliminary results did show pedals getting stuck behind floor mats and pedals getting stuck. While no widespeard electronic problem was found, that does not absolve Toyota of responsibility. Sticky pedals pose a serious safety risk, one which Toyota engineers knew of long ago. It is also reasonable for a consumer to expect that the pedals of a car would not get stuck because of floor mats, especially when Toyota designs and markets them to consumers. Some reported problems may have been caused by “driver error,” but it also appears that many incidents would not have happened but for Toyota’s inability to create a safe product. Investigation is still ongoing.
