In a letter dated September 15, 2015, a consumer submitted a petition to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) alleging that software defects caused an accident experienced by his wife in a model year 2010 Lexus HS250H vehicle as she was attempting to park the vehicle. The petition requests that NHTSA “have Toyota correct software defects in their electronic throttle control software” and then “issue a national recall of all effected [sic] vehicles and have Toyota replace the old faulty code with the new safer code.” The petition will be evaluated to determine if it will be granted or denied.

I own a 2004 Toyota corolla which is subject to the "passenger air bag issue" I have been unable to drive the vehicle with my wife next to me for over 1 year. This creates issues when trying to travel or doing just run of the mill chores -- I cannot employ the vehicle as advertised at time the time of purchase. what can I do ? Toyota refuses any compensation. They sold a defective vehicle.
