The government is still looking into the issues surrounding unintended acceleration in Toyota vehicles. The latest direction of the investigation will focus on older braking systems from 2005 or before.
Toyota is still working to reverse the negative perception of the company following massive recalls. But Boston area Toyota dealers assert that the coming is moving in the right direction, and even all 2011 vehicles will be equipped with brake override systems.
Per the U.S. House Energy and Commerce Committee’s request, Toyota will continue to work with research firm Exponent Inc. to uncover issues, even despite Committee Chairman Henry Waxman’s recent comments stating that Exponent “has not been fully cooperative with the committee’s requests.”
It seems Toyota’s recall woes aren’t disappearing as fast as they would like, but the automaker remain comitted to addressing concerns.
