The internal document was given to CNN by a group of attorneys seeking a class-action lawsuit against the company. Ditlow said the previously undisclosed document indicates Toyota officials knew of an electrical link to the acceleration problems. He said the bulletin was either ignored or hidden not only by Toyota officials but also by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, CNN said.
"The government is really hiding this information from the consumer," Ditlow told CNN. "They're in a conspiracy with the auto industry to keep these out of the public's sight."

I have a "bizarre theory".
being as the newer cars have blue tooth, and other various communications going on, could someone have made a virus that randomly causes this?
could someone (onstar like) take control of the car?
or the communications from the driver/passenger/passerby be sending some kind of false signals to the ECM?
I don't know, but, as this group of people here are amazingly knowledgable, maybe someone would care to comment.
It sure seems "interesting" that right after our auto companies went belly up, suddenly the world leader in small cars is now in trouble with an "un-find-able problem, which is train wrecking their reputation....hhmmmm.
