Michigan AG subpoenas Toyota records

LANSING, MI –

Michigan Attorney General Mike Cox has send a subpoena to Toyota, asking for records regarding sudden unintended acceleration and a fatal accident in Flint.

Cox, a Republican who's running for governor, wants the information on or before April 21.

The attorney general said Wednesday he wants to ensure that Michigan consumers received all the information they should have known about under state law before they bought their Toyotas or brought them in for repair.

A message was left requesting comment from Toyota. The company has recalled more than 8 million vehicles worldwide over sudden unexpected acceleration.

Democratic gubernatorial candidate Virg Bernero has been pushing Cox to aggressively go after the Japanese automaker.
