Toyota announced Thursday morning that it is recalling another 2.1 million vehicles in the United States for problems related to unintended acceleration.

The results of a 10-month federal probe into the possible electronic causes of unintended acceleration in Toyotas are expected to be released Tuesday afternoon, with Department of Transportation officials and scientists from NASA explaining their findings.

ron bloom, senior treasury advisor for obama's task force, said in an interview that the gm ipo was a milestone.
After a quick jump this morning of six percent, General Motors' stock is now hovering at a four percent gain, at roughly $34 a share this afternoon. The stock, which was priced at $33 a share for the IPO, surged to nearly $36 a share minutes after chief executive Dan Akerson ran the opening bell at 9:30 a.m. using the horn blare of a 2011 Chevrolet Camaro SS. The price leveled off through the morning at around $35 a share with U.S. stocks up broadly. The Dow Jones Industrial Average was up 1.58 percent to 11181.40. The S&P has risen 1.63 percent to 1197.77. The lack of volatility indicates that GM priced the IPO well. "Seems like they were pretty much on the mark to me," said Bill Visnic, a senior editor at Edmunds.com.
