Toyota Exec: No Electronic Problems in Vehicles

NAGOYA, Japan (AP) - A Toyota executive says there are no
electronic problems in vehicles being recalled in U.S. for a gas
pedal problem.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration continues to
investigate the issue but a Transportation Department official says there's been no evidence seen yet to support an electronic
malfunction.

The executive, who oversees quality control at the Japanese automaker, says there's a perception the company was slow in responding to the gas pedal problem but he says the company made finding a fix a priority.

The fix will involve the installation of a small steel shim the size of a postage stamp.

The shims are designed to relieve the friction in the accelerators that can cause them to get stuck.

Toyota insists the solution has been through rigorous testing
and will solve the problem for the life of the car.
