06:04 EDTTMNHTSA closes Toyota Prius defect petition review
On January 3, 2013, NHTSA received a letter from Ms. Jessie A. Powell petitioning the agency to investigate drivability and braking concerns in the subject vehicle. The petitioner identified complaints of poor braking performance and low brake pedal received by NHTSA concerning Prius models. Broader review of the consumer complaints reported for all variants of the subject vehicle showed no indication that either the reported jolting sensation or the brake performance concerns reported are occurring in this vehicle population at a level that would require investigative action by NHTSA. In the Agency's view, additional investigation is unlikely to result in a finding that a defect related to motor vehicle safety exists in the subject vehicles. Therefore, given the need to allocate and prioritize NHTSA limited resources to best accomplish the Agency's safety mission, the petition is denied. This action does not constitute a finding by NHTSA that a safety-related defect does not exist. The Agency will take further action if warranted by future circumstances. Reference Link

16:26 EDTTMMajor automakers sued over allegedly 'deadly' keyless technology, Reuters says
A number of automakers have been named in a lawsuit alleging that keyless ignition technology can lead to "deadly" results due to carbon monoxide poisoning from cars left running under the belief that engines will automatically switch off, reports Reuters. Defendants include General Motors (GM), Ford (F), Fiat Chrysler (FCAU), Honda (HMC), Hyundai (HYMLF), Nissan (NSANY), Toyota (TM), Volkswagen (VLKAY), BMW (BAMXY), and Daimler's (DDAIF) Mercedes Benz, said Reuters. According to the plaintiffs, the carmakers had "actual knowledge" of the so-called risks and could have prevented 13 deaths and numerous injuries. Reference Link
