Possible Honda Investigation

It looks as if Toyota isn’t the only car company that is having acceleration problems.

According to an article with freep.com, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is on the fence whether to put an investigation into effect dealing with the Honda Accord hybrid (it uses gas and electric).  Apparently, a woman involved in a car crash in 2005 that left her disabled and a passenger did filed a complaint. The article says, “She said her car crashed into oncoming traffic after she drove over rumble strips on the side of a highway. The vehicle lost braking power then accelerated on its own.”

If the investigation goes into affect, about 25,000 cars would come into question.

Honda is Toyota’s main competitor – our auto shipper companies would find it very ironic if the same acceleration problems plagued both car giants.
