Sudden acceleration refers to an incidence in which a vehicle begins accelerating at high speeds, uncontrollably. According to reports from people who claim to have experienced this frightening problem, they were not able to stop the vehicle even when stepping on the breaks.
While the exact cause of the sudden acceleration problem is still under investigation, the problem is simple — people have been injured and killed in accidents caused by sudden and uncontrollable acceleration in various Toyota vehicles. While some lawmakers argue a potential electrical defect, Toyota employees blame other factors, including misplaced floor mats, sticky pedals and human error.
Sudden acceleration has been the subject of several lawsuits filed against Toyota.
In response to injuries and deaths caused by acceleration problems, Toyota recalled millions of vehicles. It has also developed a new part that is supposed to give drivers some level of resistance when accelerating.
