PHOENIX -- Arizona is getting about $699,000 in a multi-state settlement with Toyota over problems with accelerator pedals.
State Attorney General Tom Horne announced Thursday that Arizona would be getting part of a $29 million pot split among 29 different states and American Samoa.
Horne said Arizona's cut will go the state's consumer revolving fund.
State attorney generals claimed Toyota failed to disclose dangerous safety defects with its accelerator pedals in a timely fashion.
They sued Toyota after it recalled 14 million vehicles globally in 2009 and 2010 for accelerating without warning.
As part of the settlement, Toyota said it will make vehicle information more easily accessible and deal more quickly with complaints and pay some restitution to owners.
Toyota blamed sticky gas pedals and faulty floor mats for the acceleration issue.
