Wisconsin, 27 other states settle Toyota lawsuit

by

MADISON, WI (WNS/WSAU) -  Wisconsin is getting 674-thousand-dollars from Toyota as part of a multi-state legal settlement. 

The deal totals 29-million dollars. The car-maker agreed to settle lawsuits filed by the Badger State and 27 others over vehicles that accelerated when they were not supposed to. The lawsuits accused Toyota of misleading people about safety issues concerning the unintended accelerations.

The government started investigating the matter in 2003. Recalls began six years later on a total of six-point-three million vehicles to check for sticky accelerator pedals.

As part of the settlement, Toyota must make sure it has sound engineering data to back up any safety claims it makes.
