LOS ANGELES (AP) -- Toyota Motor Corp. bought back cars from drivers who
reported sudden acceleration defects, but the company didn't tell federal
regulators about the problem, according to court documents filed in the
sprawling litigation against the automaker.
Plaintiffs' lawyers contend the Japanese company compelled the owners to
sign confidentiality agreements that prevented them from speaking publicly
about the issues they encountered.
In some cases dating back to 2006, Toyota's own technicians experienced the
vehicles speeding up without pressing the gas pedal, according to the
documents filed Wednesday in U.S. District Court.
"The deeper we dig into the facts that surround Toyota, the more damning the
evidence that Toyota was aware of the issue and failed to act responsibly,"
plaintiffs' attorney Steve Berman said. "The revelation that they bought up
the cars in question and prevented the owners from talking about their
experience is curious at best, nefarious at worst."
Toyota spokesman Mike Michels denied the allegations, saying company
technicians weren't able to duplicate the sudden acceleration claimed by
drivers in two instances.
"After having thoroughly analyzed these vehicles and driven them for
thousands of miles, Toyota (technicians) and engineers have not been able to
replicate the customers' acceleration concerns nor found any related issues
or conditions in these vehicles," Michels said in a statement. "In fact,
test driving of these vehicles is ongoing and they are operating safely."
The automaker didn't respond to the allegations that it required the owners
to remain silent and said it looks forward to defending itself in court.
Hundreds of lawsuits were filed against Toyota after the automaker began
recalling millions of vehicles because of acceleration problems in several
models and brake glitches with the Prius hybrid.
The automaker has recalled more than 10 million vehicles worldwide over the
last year. Federal officials said they have received about 3,000 complaints
about sudden acceleration and estimated the problem could be involved in the
deaths of 93 people over the last decade.
Last month, Toyota paid an undisclosed amount to settle a lawsuit with the
relatives of four people killed in August 2009 when a driver was unable to
stop a runaway Lexus. The high-profile case helped draw attention to the
acceleration phenomenon, which in some cases was blamed on faulty floor mats
trapping vehicles' accelerator pedals.
Some of the remaining lawsuits seek compensation for injury and death due to
sudden acceleration, while others claim economic loss from owners who say
the value of their cars and trucks plummeted after the recalls.
All of the federal cases were consolidated and assigned to a judge in
Southern California. The next hearing is Nov. 9.
Toyota has blamed a variety of factors -- driver error, faulty floor mats
and sticky accelerator pedals -- for the unintended acceleration. Some
plaintiffs claim Toyota's electronic throttle control system has a defect,
but Toyota has sought to dismiss the lawsuits, arguing drivers haven't
identified any such problem.
In one instance, according to the latest court documents, a Toyota service
supervisor in May 2007 reported a customer who was concerned about a 2006
Avalon that lunged after coming to a stop.
"Toyota had better get going quick as I predict this will result in numerous
accidents and possible deaths," wrote supervisor Mike Robinson, who was
relating the customer's comments. According to Robinson, the customer went
on to say, "I have talked with my service manager and he said, 'They all do
it.'"
Plaintiffs' attorneys say Toyota never reported purchasing concerned owners'
vehicles to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, nor did
Toyota executives when they testified before Congress earlier this year. The
automaker said Thursday it told the federal agency three separate times
about the claims.
Olivia Alair, a Transportation Department spokeswoman, said Toyota told
NHTSA in December 2009 about one of the sudden unintended acceleration
incidents through the government's early warning system.
Alair said the department was talking with Toyota about the incidents and
the investigation was continuing.
The Transportation Department and NASA are expected to conclude their
investigation of the Toyota recalls by the end of the year. In August, the
department said it had not found any electronic problems in runaway Toyotas,
citing a study of event data recorders, the "black boxes" that record data
about a vehicle involved in a crash.
In a separate study, the National Academy of Sciences is conducting a more
sweeping review of unintended acceleration in cars and trucks across the
auto industry. The panel is expected to release its findings in fall 2011.
Associated Press Writer Ken Thomas in Washington contributed to this report.
