Toyota criticized for slow response to vehicle issues.

Toyota is facing tough questions after a slow response concerning accelerator issues with eight models of vehicles that has sparked a major recall, reports the New York Times.

On August 28, an accelerator became stuck on a Toyota-made Lexus ES 350 sedan on a highway near San Diego, causing the car to hit an S.U.V. at 125 m.p.h. killing the four passengers inside.

The pedal maker for Toyota, CTS, is also being scrutinized in the wake of the recall. According to, CTS was singled out in the fallout after the recall was initiated on Jan. 21.

As of yet, there is no indication as to when Toyota will begin selling and making the eight car models again.
