Toyota has to pay now $11 million to the victims of the 2006 car crash that claimed the lives of three people and included in this amount hundreds of thousands of dollars to Mr. Lee. When the accident occurred, Fong Lee confronted, as a driver, with the “sudden acceleration,” a phenomenon in which Toyota drivers said their vehicle could randomly take off on its own and could not be stopped. “No amount of money… will bring my life back. My life is not the same anymore,” Lee said after the verdict. In a statement, Toyota representatives manifested doubt about the role of the manufacturing defects in the accident involving Mr.Lee as a Toyota driver. However, the manufacturing effect exists.
