Toyota Motors Corp. is currently settling numerous lawsuits over a defect that caused unexpected acceleration.
Toyota spokeswoman, Carly Schaffner mentioned that Toyota has been in the process of correcting the car defect since the initial sudden acceleration complaints.
Toyota made announcements in December of 2013 to settle all lawsuits relating to sudden acceleration lawsuits after a considerable loss in court. Analysts said that the financial loss relating to an Oklahoma lawsuit prompted Toyota’s decision to settle the remaining cases rather than contest them.
