Episode 807 - Peugeot Out of Le Mans, Kia Reworks Stop/Start System, Toyota Cleared

published 9 years ago by John McElroy

Europe’s financial troubles are starting to hurt automakers, forcing them to cut costs wherever they can. Peugeot just announced that it’s dropping out of the 24 hours of Le Mans this year. Kia is going back to the drawing board to improve the stop/start system in its Rio and Soul models. As we told you when the story first broke a couple of years ago, Toyota’s problems with unintended acceleration were largely due to driver error, and now the National Academy of Sciences concluded the same thing. All that and more, plus John answers your questions in the "You Said It" segment.
