The Transportation Department is hearing from some Toyota owners who say they're still having trouble with unintended acceleration after their recalled cars were repaired.

David Strickland, the administrator of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, says the agency is contacting these consumers to find out what's happening and make sure Toyota is doing everything possible to make its vehicles safe.

Strickland says in a statement that if owners are still experiencing sudden acceleration after taking their cars to the dealership, "we want to know about it."

So far, the government has received a limited number of acceleration complaints from the Toyota owners whose floor mats or gas pedals already have been fixed. Toyota recalled more than 8 million vehicles.
