ABC News (Nightline) is running a story on runaway Toyota cars tonight. I just received the press release.
Refusing to accept the explanation of Toyota and the federal government, hundreds of Toyota owners are in rebellion after a series of accidents caused by what they call "runaway cars."Toyota is in the midst of a recall on all the affected vehicles, while issuing a warning to all drivers. There has been a sudden surge in the amount of communication from Toyota.
Safety analysts found an estimated 2000 cases in which owners of Toyota cars including Camry, Prius and Lexus, reported that their cars surged without warning up to speeds of 100 miles per hour.
Toyota says the incidents are caused by floor mats becoming stuck under gas pedals, but owners say that's not what happened to them.
Watch the full report tonight on 'World News with Charles Gibson' and 'Nightline'.
