WASHINGTON. - More Toyota drivers say their car and trucks have sped up by themselves even after being fixed to correct the problem.
     
Another five people have reported problems to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's complaint database, describing surges of speed that came without warning. That is on top of at least 15 similar cases found by an Associated Press review of the data on Wednesday.
     
The complaints have not been independently verified. Government investigators said Wednesday that they had found 10 possible cases of post-fix problems.
     
Toyota is installing special metal shims and shortening gas pedals to solve the problem that has led it to recall more than 8 million vehicles worldwide. The company says it is confident its fixes will take care of the problems.
