"A car"...what kind of car? What was the make, model, and model year of the vehicle? Is there a reason we aren't getting this critical information?

The issue of ELECTRONIC sudden unintended acceleration is not being addressed by automakers. In the meantime, these vehicles are reported as "taking off" for no reason, often when the driver is initiating braking.

Experts have found faults in the Toyota electronic throttle control software. Toyota and Lexus are involved in many of these crashes into storefronts, buildings, and homes. Other automakers have a similar problem. The auto industry doesn't have strictly regulated standards for the software as the airline industry does. Further, in the case of the Toyota throttle control software, the standards of the auto industry weren't adhered to either.

Sudden unintended acceleration...the electronic variety...are being told that the situation didn't happen as they described. The automaker attempts to coerce or manipulate the vehicle owner into accepting the "driver error" conclusion. The tactics are described as "intimidating" by many SUA victims.

WHY the big cover-up? What do Toyota and other automakers have to HIDE?
