Through analysis of the government safety agency's data bases, Edmunds.com recently tallied the number of unintended acceleration complaints filed with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) for vehicles produced by the big six automakers, from model years 2005 to 2010.

Edmunds.com arrived at the following list:

  • Toyota, consisting of its Toyota, Lexus and Scion brands, logged 1,133 consumer complaints of unintended acceleration filed with the NHTSA through Feb. 3.
  • Ford, including the Ford, Lincoln and Mercury models, received 387 complaints.
  • Chrysler, including the Chrysler, Jeep and Dodge models, was hit with 171 complaints.
  • General Motors, including the Pontiac, Cadillac, GMC, Saturn, Saab, Buick, Hummer and Chevrolet brands including the Chevy Cobalt SS, above , tallied 152 complaints.
  • Honda, including its Acura division, received 113 complaints.
  • Nissan, including its Infiniti division, logged 62 complaints.
  • "The unintended acceleration problem has been around for a long time for every major manufacturer," as Jessica Caldwell, a pricing and industry analyst at Edmunds.com says.
