I WAS ALMOST SMASHED BY A SNOWPLOW TODAY BECAUSE MY 2007 TOYOTA PRIUS' TRAC TRACTION CONTROL REMOVED ALL POWER FROM THE FRONT WHEELS THUS BRINGING ME TO A DEAD STOP IN A BUSY INTERSECTION. THIS OCCURRED ON SNOW/ICE. THERE IS NO EXCUSE FOR LOSING POWER TO THE WHEELS EVEN IF THEY ARE SPINNING. THE VEHICLE "SENSED" THAT ONE WHEEL HAD SPUN AND PROCEEDED TO PROGRESSIVELY SHUT DOWN POWER TO THE FRONT WHEELS. I NEARLY WET MY PANTS WHEN THIS HAPPENED IN FRONT OF AN ON-COMING VDOT SNOWPLOW. THIS WAS A NEAR CRASH/DEATH/INJURY INCIDENT. IT HAPPENED OVER AND OVER AGAIN ALL DAY. I SEARCH THE INTERNET LATER ABOUT IT AND FOUND THIS: HTTP://WWW.CONSUMERAFFAIRS.COM/NEWS04/2008/01/PRIUS_WINTER.HTML TOYOTA'S RESPONSE IS AT THE BOTTOM OF THE ARTICLE. I THINK THEY ARE DOWNPLAYING A BIGGER ISSUE. A SIMPLE SEARCH ON THE INTERNET AND YOU CAN FIND STORY AFTER STORY JUST LIKE MINE. TOYOTA NEEDS TO FIX THIS.
