I OWN A 2005 SOLARA SLE V6 AUTOMATIC: PULLING INTO A RESTAURANT PARKING SPACE, MAKING A RIGHT TURN, THE VEHICLE SUDDENLY ACCELERATED FORWARD: JUMPING THE CURB, FORWARD ONTO A MUDDY OPEN SPACE, AN APPROX. 25* INCLINE, AND INTO A LOW BARRIER WALL BETWEEN THE TWO NEIGHBORING RESTAURANTS' PARKING LOTS (WITH CARS ON THE OTHER-SIDE OF THE BARRIER). FORTUNATELY, NO VEHICLES OR PERSONS WERE STUCK!; JUST, THE DAMAGE TO MY VEHICLE! WHEN IT ACCELERATED, MY FOOT WAS OFF THE ACCELERATOR PETAL, ABOUT TO BRAKE; STOOD ON MY ABS BRAKE; AND, THE BARRIER, I BELIEVE, STOPPED MOST OF THE FORWARD MOTION; HIT HARD; AIR BAGS DID NOT DEPLOY !!! NOTHING LIKE THIS HAS EVER HAPPENED TO ME BEFORE; NOT IN ANY OF MY PAST VEHICLES !!! IT'S MY UNDERSTANDING THAT TOYOTA IS DENYING PROBLEMS WITH THE SOLARA MODELS, WHEN THEY'RE THE SPORTY MODEL THE CAMRY !!! DEALERSHIP SAID TO CONTACT CORPORATE, BUT, THIS IS NOT ... BLAME IT ON THE DRIVER FOR INCORRECT MATS; MINE ARE THE ORIGINALS HOOKED UNDER THE FRONT SEATS !!! THIS IS TRANSMISSION CONTROL LINKAGE TO THE ACCELERATOR PETAL !? WHEN I BACKED UP, OFF THE MUDDY HILL, I NOTICED THE TRANSMISSION WAS STIFF/SLUGGISH !!! 2ND TOPIC - DRIVER'S LEFT SIDE LEATHER SEAT PANEL FOR AIR BAG: TOOK IT IN DUE TO PANEL SPLITTING IN TWO PARALLEL SPOTS (POSSIBLE SPLIT LEATHER MATERIAL, RATHER THAN FULL HIDE ? TOO THIN FOR SIDE-AIR BAG ! ) TOYOTA REFUSED TO FIX THIS SAFETY ISSUE !!!
