Toyota, one of the largest auto developing companies of the world had been through some huge criticism because of the accelerator’s problems in most of its models but on Tuesday the president of Toyota motor sales USA James Lentz has told the skeptical lawmakers that the company’s accelerator’s problem is not related to the electric defects and this fact has been shown in the copy of testimonial provide by the company.

In the pages of Lentz’s advance testimony provided by the company he said that “We are confident that no problems exist with the electronic throttle control system in our vehicles,” and he further discussed that “We have designed our electronic throttle control system with multiple fail-safe mechanisms to shut off or reduce engine power in the event of a system failure”.

The accelerator’s problem has remained a great threat for the company’s reputation in the international markets and it has not yet vanished and now the market experts are suggesting that electric defects are the cause of this problem, Waxman D-Calif wrote a letter to Lentz in which he said that “Our preliminary assessment is that Toyota resisted the possibility that electronic defects could cause safety concerns”, thus the company should change their inspection behavior and may be they can get to the problem more effectively.
