Officials: Drivers report trouble with fixed Toyotas

WASHINGTON – About ten Toyota owners have complained to U.S. auto safety regulators that their vehicles suffered some kind of sudden acceleration after being repaired under Toyota’s two recalls for the problem.

The complaints highlighted by safety advocate Sean Kane drew a quick response today from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, which said it would investigate.

"NHTSA has already started contacting consumers about these complaints to get to the bottom of the problem and to make sure Toyota is doing everything possible to make its vehicles safe,” NHTSA Administrator David Strickland said in a statement. “If Toyota owners are still experiencing sudden acceleration incidents after taking their cars to the dealership, we want to know about it.

Radio host reports no problems with his Toyota Prius. Fred LeFebvre host of the morning show on local radio station 1370 WSPD reports no problems with either brakes or acceleration on his Toyota Prius. LeFebvre is quoted as saying "I would buy another Prius with no reservations". His current Prius is averaging 40-45 mpg each tank of gas.
LeFebvre reminds Governor Strickland that he doesn't need the administration to help him with his automobile, and would instead like them to focus on the high unemployment rate, confiscatory tax structure of the state, and the continued use of an unconstitutional method of funding our public schools.

Radio host needs Strickland to repair city roads so his foreign made go-kart can navigate unfunded potholes that consume 12" tired cars. Raise taxes on those that still work in America to pay for those that use to have manufacturing jobs building for Americans and supporting America with living wage jobs. What does it matter that a car gets 40-45 mpg when your increased city income tax and fees consume all the savings paying for services of those that are now unemployed or underemployed?
