Toyota is Running Into More Trouble

Toyota is Running Into More Trouble

Federal investigators are looking into sudden acceleration claims on the Toyota Tacoma, plus Prius braking performance is in question.

The bad news continues for Toyota, as complaints over brake problems surfaced for the company's popular Prius model this week. In 2007 the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration tested the Lexus ES-350 and found interference problems with the accelerator pedal. The issue failed to make headlines at the time.

Updates:
Lexus LS 600h and LS 460 Variable Gear Ratio Steering Recall
Toyota's president Akio Toyoda will testify before a congressional hearing next week, appealing to U.S. lawmakers and aggrieved customers for understanding while the company fixes its safety problems.
Executives confirm...they may recall the top selling Corolla because of problems with the power steering.
Toyota will recall 270,000 Prius hybrid vehicles over brake problems in the United States and Japan, a report said Friday, while the beleaguered auto giant launched an investigation into possible problems with the brakes in two more hybrids including the luxury Lexus.
A Japanese dealership says that Toyota will issue a recall for third-generation Prius over further safety concerns.
