This case takes place in California and involves a series of incidents involving several different vehicle models from the same manufacturer. The issue in question pertains to the vehicles’ tendency to randomly switch gears at improper and inopportune moments due, in part, to a malfunction in the software and computer systems used by these particular vehicles. The unintended shifts have caused several issues in the affected vehicles, such as transmission damage and other automotive mechanical problems.
Expert Witness Response E-007780
I was part of the team that investigated Toyota’s Engine Control Module to search for software based unintended acceleration. I was the engineer that discovered the principal flaw that was at the center of Toyota settling its class action lawsuit, and also the recent jury verdict in OK that has caused Toyota to recently announce they are entering intensive settlement negotiations. I was the coauthor of an 800 page report that was used in these litigations.
