Toyota‘s new spokesman suggested that their “unintended acceleration” could be caused by consumers misunderstanding of their vehicle’s radar-guided cruise control system. The cruise control, which speeds up or slows the vehicle down depending on its proximity to other cars, might not have been properly explained to customers, leading to concerns about unintended acceleration, said Steve St. Angelo, Toyota’s new spokesman, in an interview with Automotive News.
“We’re realizing that we haven’t done a good job of educating our customers about our cars,” said St. Angelo. “We must do a better job of educating them about the features, especially if they have anything to do with unintended acceleration.”
