The Los Angeles Times is reporting that at least seven complaints have been filed with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration by owners of recalled Toyota vehicles that were repaired. These few complaints say that the owners are still experiencing unintended acceleration.

These complaints have not been verified by NHTSA and may not have been followed up on in any way.

One of the complaints highlighted by the newspaper was on a 2010 Toyota Camry that got brake override software added. The car accelerated into a snowbank.

With over a million vehicles now fixed under the recalls, it’ll be interesting to see how the government and Toyota follow up with complaints like these.
