Toyota Continues to Deny Electronic System Defect in Vehicles

By Car Accident Help on March 24, 2010

On the heels of Toyota defect recall after recall, Toyota Motor Corporation is sticking by its claim that the issues causing its vehicles to unintentionally accelerate are not related to faulty electronic safety systems. Specifically, Toyota maintains that instances of unintended acceleration are caused either by gas pedals remaining in the depressed position due to an easy-to-fix mechanical problem or faulty floor mats. According to a Reuters.com article, Toyota has discredited outside sources which conclude that the issues surrounding Toyota vehicles may stem from electronic system errors.

Reportedly, Professor David Gilbert, an auto engineering expert at Southern Illinois University, was able to replicate the unintended acceleration scenario in which so many motorists have already been injured or lost their lives. Professor Gilbert did this by manipulating the Toyota vehicles’ electronic throttle control system. However, Toyota Motor Corporation representatives and researchers make the claim that conditions under which the unintended acceleration instances were brought about were hardly indicative of real world driving conditions. Therefore, the results of this study could not be used as evidence that the unintended acceleration issues were being caused by an electronic safety system malfunction.

Regardless of the cause of Toyota’s vehicle issues, the fact of the matter remains that innocent motorists are being placed in harm’s way due to negligent action on the part of Toyota Motor Corporation and its ever-expanding fleet of recalled vehicles. If you or a loved one has been injured due to unintended acceleration issues or any other suspected auto product defect, please contact the auto products liability attorneys at the Maples Law Firm. Our experienced Oklahoma Toyota recall lawyers will seek monetary compensation on your behalf, holding negligent auto manufacturers accountable for their actions in a court of law.
