Dateline NBC - Sudden Acceleration Investigation - Segment 3
A Boston mechanic tells of his experiences with sudden acceleration. He
simulates sudden acceleration just like Sam Sero. He shows that when a
wire in the cruise control is manipulated, the gas pedal moves on its own,
and the engine goes to wide open throttle (WOT).
More people tell of their sudden acceleration stories. A Ford dealership
mechanic tells how he wrote to Ford asking about sudden acceleration, and
Ford responded that he should check the wiring in the cruise control. The
mechanic explains that he found a cruise control unit from a car that
experienced sudden acceleration in which two wires were in contact with
Ford's own investigations show they knew of all the possible causes of

Toyota on Wednesday announced that it will deal with the problem of
potential accelerator pedal entrapment involving eight of its vehicle
models, including the 2004-'09 Toyota Prius, by taking a number of steps.
It will reconfigure the accelerator pedal and, in some cases, the shape of
the floor surface under the pedal. It also will install a brake override
system on five models as an "extra measure of confidence" and then
incorporate the system into "new production of most models by the end of
2010," it said in a statement. The issue affects 3.8 million vehicles....

Toyota recalls 4 million vehicles amid unintended acceleration problems
Last month, Toyota issued a massive recall of nearly 4 million Toyota and
Lexis vehicles. The recall is intended to fix a very dangerous defect which
can lead to Unintended Acceleration of the vehicle. Initially thought to be
an issue with floor mats, the real problem involves the cars electronic
throttle system. The recall was prompted by a high speed crash in August in
California of a Lexus barreling out of control. As the vehicle hit speeds
exceeding 120 mph, family members made a frantic 911 call and said the
accelerator was stuck and they couldnt stop the vehicle.

Super car driver idiots [NO pics, only videos]
I got bored with all the "super car crashes"-videos here on YouTube that
only contained PICTURES, CRAPPY MUSIC or/and clips of pure racing cars on
official racing events.
This compilation DOES NOT include pure racing cars on official racing
events - only real life FAILures on the STREETS, made by people with more
money than driving skills...
(Though, even the best car drivers can crash too of course.)
Notice 1: The "Dodge Ram" may not be a super car, but still it's a SRT10
with the 8.3L Viper V10 which produces 510hp. Pretty super for a pick up,
don't you think? It has more power than several of the cars in this video.
The intention with this video was to show that skills doesn't come with
Notice 2: Tire is the preferred spelling in the U.S. and Canada. Tyre is
preferred in most varieties of English outside North America. And I'm from
Sweden. So please think outside your box (country), you who claims "tyre"
is incorrect spelling.

Runaway Prius Inspection #1a
Prius was removed from the River and inspected by a Toyota regional
engineer and an independent engineer paid by Allstate.
Toyota Recall - a look inside the Gas Pedal and all its parts - a YouTube first
Carquestions takes an up close look at the inside of the CTS manufactured
Gas Pedal to see how it works and what's causing it to stick leading Toyota
to recall millions of it's car and trucks. Surprisingly it has only two
moving parts and on first look appears to be a well made part. There is
some "Star Trek" style physics going on inside with a device known as a
"magnetic field generator". Lets Hope Toyota has a "Scotty" type who can
figure out a solution and fast.
Dateline NBC - Sudden Acceleration Investigation - Segment 4
After seeing the newest evidence, the head of the previous sudden
acceleration investigation by the Federal Government says he thinks sudden
acceleration needs to be examined again.
Ford's internal video shows that 175lbs. of braking pressure is needed to
stop a car at wide open throttle (WOT). This contradicts Ford's assertion
that, even if the cars are accelerating to wide open throttle on their own,
the brakes should be able to safely stop the car.
