WASHINGTON -- A government panel looking into problems with unintended acceleration in vehicles -- a key issue in Toyota's massive recalls -- is hearing from victims who say they suddenly lost control of their cars.
A National Academy of Sciences panel is reviewing the potential causes of unintended acceleration in vehicles across the entire auto industry.
The review was prompted by Toyota's recall of more than 10 million vehicles worldwide because of problems with sticking accelerator pedals and gas pedals getting stuck in floor mats.
Several victims are telling the panel Tuesday that they're baffled by what has caused the acceleration in their cars. Some former Toyota owners say they're certain it wasn't an issue addressed by the recalls.
