The nation's largest auto insurer said Tuesday it alerted federal safety
regulators in late 2007 about a rise in reports of unexpected acceleration
in Toyota vehicles, the latest warning sign to emerge about the massive
State Farm insurance said it noticed an uptick in reports of unwanted
acceleration in Toyotas from its large customer database and warned the
National Highway Traffic Safety Administration in late 2007. NHTSA officials
said the report was reviewed and the agency issued a recall later that
NHTSA received complaints about acceleration problems in Toyota vehicles as
early as 2003, and congressional investigators are looking into whether the
government missed warning signs of the problems. A congressional hearing
into the Toyota recalls planned for Wednesday was postponed because of a
snowstorm expected to hit the capital.
It just keeps getting more and more ugly.
