Lawsuit Claims Toyota Knew About SUA Seven Years Ago
Lawyers in the Toyota class-action lawsuit allege that internal documents at Toyota show that they knew about sudden unintended accelleration (SUA) in 2003.
In a revised complaint filed Monday it refers to one document detailing "a mis-synchronism between engine speed and throttle position movement". Another document that's referenced shows a "surge event...even where the scan tool showed no trouble code"
The National Highway Transportation Safety Administration (NHTSA) has attributed 93 deaths to SUA. 8.5 million vehicles have been recalled to deal with SUA..
