CTS: Toyota Problems Predate Use Of Company's Pedals
CTS Corp. (CTS) said reports of unintended acceleration in Toyota Motor
Corp. (7203.TO, TM) vehicles go back to 1999, before the components maker
was even supplying the pedals that have been the focus of media reports.
The incidents and resulting recall have been a public-relations nightmare
for CTS and particularly Toyota, which built its reputation by focusing on
bulletproof reliability. Toyota has halted sales of eight models in the U.S.
, including the best-selling Camry, while the companies work on a fix.
On Thursday, CTS said the problem is related to Toyota's design, not
electronic sensors that are part of the accelerator assembly as some people
in the industry had speculated. Toyota has also said it didn't believe the
electronics were at fault.
CTS, which began supplying the pedals to Toyota in model year 2005, said
Friday it believes a slow-return-pedal phenomenon may occur under "extreme
environmental conditions," but shouldn't be linked with any incidents of
unintended acceleration. CTS also pointed out it isn't aware of any
accidents or injuries caused by the condition.
"We are disappointed that, despite these facts, CTS accelerator pedals have
been frequently associated with the sudden unintended acceleration problems
and incidents in various media reports," said Dennis Thornton, general
manager of CTS's Automotive Products Group.

CTS Comments on Accelerator Pedals
ELKHART, Ind.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--CTS Corporation (NYSE: CTS - News) today
expressed its “deep concern that there is widespread confusion and
incorrect information” about the role of CTS-manufactured gas pedals in the
media coverage of the recent Toyota recall.
CTS stated that since the problem of sudden unintended acceleration has been
reported to have existed in some Lexus vehicles and Toyota vehicles going
back to 1999 when CTS did not even make this product for any customer, CTS
believes that the rare slow return pedal phenomenon, which may occur in
extreme environmental conditions, should absolutely not be linked with any
sudden unintended acceleration incidents. CTS is also not aware of any
accidents and injuries caused by the rare slow return pedal condition, to
the best of its knowledge. CTS wishes to clarify that it does not, and has
never made, any accelerator pedals for Lexus vehicles and that CTS also has
no accelerator pedals in Toyota vehicles prior to model year 2005.
“We are disappointed that, despite these facts, CTS accelerator pedals have
been frequently associated with the sudden unintended acceleration problems
and incidents in various media reports,” said Dennis Thornton, CTS Vice
President and General Manager of Automotive Products Group. Toyota itself
has also publicly stated that this recall is separate from the earlier
recalls which were done to remedy sudden acceleration in vehicles.
CTS and Toyota continue to work closely in our partnership to resolve the
slow return phenomenon.
