    Bringing back memories of 60 Minutes and the 1986 Audi 5000, recently a wave of owner complaints drove the NHTSA to investigate 2004 - 2008 Toyota Tacoma pickups over a possible problem with sudden, unintended acceleration. All along the automaker has insisted that despite hearing of over 431 separate incidents nothing is mechanically wrong with their truck, and now federal regulators are backing them up -- closing the inquiry, the NHTSA says it..

    Hmm.....I think their are more than 431 accounts of this on this board alone?

    ^WRONG. "Sudden, unintended acceleration" is NOT what people on this forum have discussed.
