Toyota Tacoma gets added to Toyota's list of vehicles being investigated regarding reports of unintended acceleration.

The folks at Autoblog have reported that Toyota has added the Toyota Tacoma to the sizeable list of its vehicle models subject to investigations. Autoblog indicated that the investigation of Tacoma pickups, a follow-up to an earlier Tacoma investigation in 2008, was a result of inquiries associated with the congressional hearings on Toyota's recall and quality woes.

The 2008 investigation reported addressed just over 500 reports of unintended acceleration in Tacoma pickups. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) reportedly did its own investigation into reports of unintended acceleration in 2006-2007 Toyota Tacomas back in 2008. But NHTSA never took any action, noting that the information suggesting a possible defect was limited.

Apparently the feds are turning the screws on Toyota allegedly in the interest of the safety of their constituents. Stay tuned to as we keep you posted on the latest in Toyota pickup recall and investigation news.
