A top Toyota executive claims the crash data boxes in Toyota vehicles are reliable, but that a bug in the software that reads the information can provide inaccurate vehicle speeds. That disclosure came as NHTSA continued its investigation into unintended acceleration of Toyota models. The Japanese car maker had acknowledged previously that the event data recorders were not accurate. Toyota is now claiming that the problem only involves speed. That is most interesting to say the least.
The event data recorder, known as an EDR, also records such information as throttle position and braking pressure. Frankly, I have difficulty believing anything Toyota says now, based on its past history of withholding critical information from NHTSA and the American people, and I am not the only person who feels that way.
