Electronic Throttle Control to Blame?

Toyota denied that it even had a sudden acceleration problem for more than five years.

At first they blamed the drivers or owners then Toyota acknowledge there could be a problem, but it made this admission by making "inaccurate and misleading" statements about the safety of Toyota vehicles and received a strong public rebuke from the regulators at the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
The findings from the independent investigators at the San Diego County Sheriff's Department further bolster the findings of independent safety experts that the Toyota electronic throttle -- not floor mats -- is to blame for these unintended acceleration events. Sean Kane, an Independent safety expert of Safety Research & Strategies, has identified more than 2,100 Toyota sudden acceleration events. Many of these events occurred in vehicles with no floor mats at all.

Consumer Reports also confirmed that many of the sudden acceleration events occurred in vehicles with no floor mats stating "There was something else, outside the cabin, that was causing the problem."

While Toyota initially tried to blame the accelerator troubles on a floor mat issue, it became evident that this was not simply a floor mat problem. Independent safety experts continue to point to Toyota's electronic throttle controls, not the floor mats, as the source of the sudden acceleration defect.
