Imagine Driving your Toyota Hybrid Prius to your house. Your slow down to position the car for parking. Your 6 year old son/daughter is in front of the drive way waving at you happy to see you. Suddenly, your car lurches forward at a great accelleration towards your child..................Toyota is having major issues with the Prius Hybrids Out Of Control Accelleration. See for your self. Toyota is experimenting with human lives just like Adolf Hitler did............
Karen in Los Gatos, California has a 2007 Prius she has driven since December of 2006.
“After driving the car approximately 1,000 miles, Toyota Prius hybrid had an uninitiated full-throttle acceleration while driving on an expressway,” she told ConsumerAffairs.Com.
“Startled, I slammed on the brakes. The accelerator fought my braking as I pulled over and turned off the car, shocked and taking a deep breath,” Karen wrote us.
Karen did not think about the problem with unintended acceleration again until it happened with about 13,000 miles on the odometer.
“I had been stopped at a traffic light. It changed to green and I started to move forward. The Prius took off charging toward the car in front of me. Standing on the brakes, I pulled over and turned off the car. Very frightened, I sat wondering what I should do next. What happens if I turn the car on and it takes off again?” she asked herself.
Karen said that all was normal when she re-fired the hybrid engine.
“I called Toyota and talked to a sales person and explained this dangerous experience. He confirmed that he was familiar with the problem and also experienced this himself when driving one of the earlier models of the Prius,” Karen wrote.
Karen took the runaway Prius to her Toyota dealer and listened as the service manager blamed everything that occurred on "nothing more than a carpet jamming the accelerator pedal."
“As I explained to him, I didn't have floor mats when this happened the first time,” Karen wrote.
A concerned friend sent Karen a link to earlier stories published by ConsumerAffairs.Com.
"I forwarded the link to the owner of the Toyota dealership. He too expressed concern and asked me to keep the loaner for a few more days while they get someone for Toyota to look further into this,” Karen said.
Sentiment : Strong Sell
