Arizona To Receive Payout In Toyota Settlement

ToyotaArizona is getting nearly $700,000 in a multi-state settlement with Toyota over problems with accelerator pedals.  State Attorney General Tom Horne says Arizona would be getting part of a $29 million pot split among 29 different states and American Samoa.  Horne says Arizona's cut will go the state's consumer revolving fund.

State attorney generals sued Toyota after it recalled 14 million vehicles globally in 2009 and 2010 for accelerating without warning. 

As part of the settlement, Toyota says it will make vehicle information more easily accessible and deal more quickly with complaints and pay some restitution to owners.
