A recent article in the San Diego Union-Tribune used the recent recall of 3.8 million floor mats in Lexus and Toyota models as a springboard to rehash the supposed controversy over SUA, or “sudden, unintended acceleration.” One on side, there are the victims and their families who’ve experienced the consequences of sudden acceleration; on the other side are the car manufacturers, who more often than not claim that any unexpected acceleration is “driver error.” Clearly, when they took action with the recall, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration understood that the “error” was with the vehicles. Case closed.
