Some Good News for Toyota

Toyota has to deal with the fallout of its admission of electronics-related stalling in 2005-2007 Corolla and Matrix cars.   Amidst this is also a silver lining for Toyota.   NHTSA has reported very briefly that a recent incident of SUA (sudden unintended acceleration) reported by a New York driver looks to be an outcome of pedal mis-application (the gas pedal being pressed while braking was intended).     This is good news for Toyota though it does not automatically all the other reported cases of SUA.

I also interpret this report as confirmation that NHTSA does have a black-box reader from Toyota.   That’s good news for all.
