A video of a Prius that lost control in a dramatic crash on a California highway has sparked a new investigation into Toyota's acceleration problems. Worse, the driver says he had already reported problems to the car dealer.

Meanwhile, other Toyota owners, who have had their cars fixed following the recall, say they are still experiencing dangerous problems. Paul Eisenstein, publisher of The Detroit Bureau joins us to explain this investigation and the implications for carmakers beyond Toyota.
