'Experts at the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration examined 58 vehicles involved in sudden-acceleration reports and found data in 35 of them showed the brakes weren't applied at the time of the crash. Data from nine other vehicles showed the brakes were used only in the last moment before impact.The report doesn't specify driver error as a cause of unintended acceleration, although people familiar with the investigation have said the findings point to pedal misapplication—mistakenly hitting the gas instead of the brakes—as a likely cause.'' "The limited research completed so far has not led to identification of safety defects other than sticking gas pedals or pedal entrapment," the report said.' http://online.wsj.com/article/SB1000142405274870416490457542...------------------------------Global Gains Home Fool
