Edmunds $1,000,000 Challenge Prediction: No Winner
Tomorrow, Edmunds will announce the results of its $1,000,000 Unintended Acceleration challenge, the contest they set up to see if anyone could demonstrate a hardware or software error state that could cause unintended acceleration in a Toyota with electronic throttle control.
My prediction: no millionaires. No winner.
Because the problem was explained by floor mats and some sticky pedal assemblies, compounded by user error.
