The Orange County Register recently reported that there have been 34 alleged deaths from Toyota vehicles since 2000. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, complaints about the Toyota Prius hybrid grew by about 1,000 in a week. Toyota has recalled 8.5 million vehicles in the United States and other countries because of gas pedal, floor mats and brake problems.
The government is investigating these problems. According to a Toyota spokesperson, Toyota has repaired about 500,000 of the 2.3 million vehicles recalled because of a sticky gas pedal.
