NHTSA launches investigation on Toyota Tacomas

The NHSTA has announced that it is investigating complaints involving 2006-2007 Toyota Tacoma pickup trucks for unintentional acceleration.
That investigation impacts 362,000 vehicles.

Toyota has had similar problems in the past with its Prius and Lexus ES due to defective floor mats.

Really? Gee, what a shame for good ol American-as-apple-pie Toyoddy! Maybe these "trucks" will all unintentionally accelerate themselves off cliffs... works for me.

Bob Lutz: "There's no doubt that a design-driven philosophy is the only one that will work. People who are not sensitive to design, people who don't care about vehicles, people who view a vehicle as an appliance, they just default to Toyota. We will never win that one."

I knew it would only be a matter of time before more problems at Toyota occurred. I had mentioned in another thread how the Japanese car culture tries to hide or head off defects before the media or Govt. authorities get involved.
