Sudden Acceleration in Media Falsehoods Regarding Toyota
Several reports out in the past few days are like that in US Nesa & World Report: NHTSA: 89 Deaths Caused by Unintended Acceleration in Toyota Vehicles” and/or in the NY Times Sudden Acceleration Death Toll Linked to Toyota Rises
Not exactly true. Says who? NHTSA:
  • Please remember these are customer generated complaints of alleged unintended acceleration that have not been verified by NHTSA: “As of May 20, 2010, NHTSA has received complaints covering a total of seventy-one (71) fatal incidents that allegedly involve unintended acceleration in Toyota vehicles since 2000. These reports covering incidents dating back to 2000 include eighty-nine (89) fatalities and fifty-seven (57) injuries.”
Helps explain how 19 deaths associated with Toyota sudden acceleration in November 2009, before the first class action suit was filed, have now become 89 deaths. No, more people haven’t died. More people have simply come to the conclusion that a death in their Toyota over the last decade was caused by sudden acceleration. The offer of lucre has a way of jogging the ol’ memory.
