omg 280,000 lines of code? I can barely manage a few thousand... compiling something that large would BLOW MY MIND

the whole thing is nonsense. Toyota is the one who is investigating the situation. Not the government. So anything Toyota says is probably a lie. But anyway, no computer code can make a car accelerate. No code can disable the mechanical braking mechanisms. No code can prevent hydraulic brakes from working.

The onboard computer had a memory leak and the cruise control value got set to a random int.

My question is if they couldn't hit the breaks and it kept accelerating.. why not just turn off the car?

Just saying.
I noticed this too. I always thought this was at least partially to blame.

Honda really profited from it though. I remember seeing that Honda sales took a big jump when Toyota had all these stories floating around.

I'm not going to both reading the previous posts but here is the explanation for "acceleration issues".

When you get in wreck you are forced to brace yourself, which includes pushing down with both feet as hard as you can. It's an instinctual safety reaction. If you foot was on the gas pedal, or even the break pedal, at time of impact you are likely going to end up flooring it.

So the real question is why is the gas pedal in the only place you can brace yourself against in case of an accident?

I have always said, even if there was a electronic problem, the brakes are still mechanical. Bad drivers will be just as bad in any vehicle.

False. There was an independent body separate from Toyota, commissioned by the United States government that did an investigation IN ADDITION to Toyota's own investigation,
