    DETROIT. - Toyota Motor Corp. says it will begin telling millions of customers how it will repair their sticky gas pedal systems next week, and repairs will be finished in less than a month. Company spokesman Brian Lyons says he can't state specifically when repairs will begin, but he says the automaker is moving quickly to correct the problem that affects about 4.2 million vehicles in the U.S., Europe and China.>>



















WASHINGTON. - Toyota says federal prosecutors have launched a criminal investigation into the company's safety problems, while the Securities and Exchange Commission is probing what the automaker told investors.
     
Toyota also faces questions from lawmakers in hearings beginning tomorrow. House investigators believe Toyota intentionally resisted the possibility that electronic defects caused unintended acceleration, and then misled the public into thinking its recall would fix all the problems.
     
Rep. Bart Stupak, who will conduct Tuesday's hearing, also says documents and interviews demonstrate the company relied on a flawed engineering report in its statements to reassure the public.
     
In a letter to the company, the Michigan Democrat said a review of consumer complaints produced by Toyota shows that company personnel identified sticking pedals or floor mats as the cause of only 16 percent of the unintended acceleration reports.
