Since Toyota recalled more than 8 million vehicles last October, drivers have flocked to Toyota dealers to have their cars fixed. However, at least 15 drivers who supposedly had their sticky gas pedals or floor mats fixed have complained that their vehicles sped up by themselves.
According to a Massachusetts-based car safety and advocacy organization, Toyota’s issues may extend beyond sticky pedals or floor mat issues. In fact, some experts believe the problem may be electronic in nature and they say Toyota has not examined this possible cause.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that 52 people have died in car crashes associated with Toyota’s acceleration issues. The agency is investigating Toyota’s safety issues and said it wants to hear from more drivers, if they are experiencing similar problems.
