Older Toyota Corollas Under Unintended Acceleration Probe

Older Toyota Corollas Under Unintended Acceleration Probe

The Toyota unintended acceleration saga could have a new chapter.

According to a recent report, a consumer petition alleging that 2006-2010 Toyota Corollas suffer from unintended acceleration is being looked into by U.S. safety regulators. The inquiry will cover about 1.69-million Corollas which are being reported to unexpectedly accelerate at low speeds and cause crashes. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) will decide whether it’ll warrant a formal investigation.

Investigators have found 141 consumer complaints regarding the issue with one recent report claiming the vehicle caused a collision with a parked car on June 8. The petition was filed on September 11 and no other crashes or injuries have been reported.
