Analysis: Fixed Toyotas Still Prompting Complaints

Wednesday, 17 Mar 2010 04:36 PM

An analysis by The Associated Press finds that the government has received more than 100 complaints from drivers who say their recalled Toyotas are still accelerating on their own even after receiving the automaker's fix.

An AP review of unverified driver complaints found 105 such reports since Feb. 15. That's a 75 percent increase from the 60 reported earlier this month by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The safety agency says it's investigating and has identified several instances in which dealers botched the repairs.

Toyota, which has recalled more than 8 million cars and trucks since last fall, blames the problem on floor mats that trap gas pedals or accelerators that become sticky in certain conditions.
