Manufacturing defects in car and SUV transmissions or cables may lead to unexpected vehicle movement, gear changes, and sudden, sometimes radical speed increases. On April 12, 2012, federal safety regulators proposed a mandate to require cars, SUVs, and pickup trucks be equipped with brake-throttle override technology to ensure drivers can bring them to a stop in case of unintended acceleration. Brake-throttle override is an electronic system that works with modern electronic throttle controls to reduce engine power whenever the brake pedal is depressed allowing the vehicle to easily come to a stop. While a few European automakers, General Motors, and Nissan have used the technology for several years, our clients allege in the Toyota unintended acceleration cases that a brake override system could have prevented the car crash.
