Fighting for Florida Car Accident Victims Since 1977

March 17, 2010

Today’s Toyota executives come bearing gifts to the American public. Amid a mammoth recall of several million late model Toyotas and increased scrutiny of the company’s track record on addressing safety issues, Toyota top brass are trying to revive trust and interest in their brand with new financial incentives for customers.

New financial incentives are not the only thing that the Toyota Company is doing to handle the effects of “floor mat” and “sticky gas pedal” recalls that include the majority of their current product line. The company is working to provide a reinforced gas pedal, as well as a brake override system that can shut off the engine when the brake and gas pedals are pressed simultaneously. However, some drivers who have reported sudden or unintended acceleration in Toyota vehicles are not sure that the company’s fixes will be entirely effective, and some are calling on the company to conduct further trials of electronic throttle systems to see if some kind of technical issue is at work in the safety incidents that caused the recalls.

Toyota is claiming a loss of 18,000 sales in February, and as March progresses, its leaders are advertising their new incentives on television. New customers can get no-interest financing for five years on a different Toyota model. Low lease rates apply to nine late model Toyotas. However, that is not all: customers also get two years of free scheduled maintenance for going back to the embattled Toyota brand.

Consumer polls show that while some individuals and families are now distrustful of buying a Toyota, others are jumping back in to get this popular Japanese brand at lower prices than the high sale costs associated with Toyota before the recall. Auto industry experts predict that new and used Toyota’s pricing will match closely to the price tags of other vehicles on the North American market.

Previous reports associate 43 fatalities and numerous injuries with recalled Toyotas. It’s important that Toyota drivers stay current on new advice for fixing sudden or unintended acceleration in their vehicles. It’s also important that consumers across the nation know where to turn for help with injuries when a defective or recalled Toyota causes personal harm in an accident.
