There are new questions today about the runaway cars I’ve written about here. Toyota has blamed the problems on the floor mats. However, ABC’s  Brian Ross has an investigation airing tonight on ABC’s World News with Charles Gibson, where car owners say that couldn't be the explanation.

According to their research, some Toyota car owners say they didn't even have the floor mats in question. There’s growing concern the problems may be caused by a computer glitch.

You can watch the story that aired this morning on Good Morning America here. Then be sure to tune in to ABC’s World News tonight to see Ross’s complete report.

Toyota issued a new statement today saying car owners will start receiving letters about this problem.

If you’ve experienced similar acceleration problems send me an e-mail.
