Drivers report trouble with fixed Toyotas
Yeah, it's probably in the electronics. Mats and sticking pedals account for only 30% of the runaways. As I understand from the hearings, CTS pedals accounted for 0 fatality (all fatalities on Denso pedals).

This change has happened often enough that I'm pret... 15 Mar 2010 20:47
