The ongoing investigation into Toyota's unintended acceleration problem and 
cover up indicates that they have known of the problem since 2003.  In 
addition, there are reports from their own dealership mechanics confirming 
customer's complaints of this problem.  

Yes, I suspect that many, if not most, of the problems are due to driver 
error but there is confirmation of both a real problem as well as a cover up.
