Report: Drivers still having problems with Toyota cars


MADISON (WKOW) -- Toyota cars are still accelerating, according to new research from The Associated Press.

The analysis shows the government has received 100 complaints from Toyota drivers who are still having acceleration problems even after bringing their cars to Toyota for a 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.
