FIRST TIME THE PRIUS SURGED THE CAR HAD JUST LEFT THE FREEWAY AND THE CRUISE CONTROL WAS STILL ENGAGED. THE PRIUS SURGED AT 55 MILES AN HOUR FOR A HUNDRED FEET TILL WE GAINED CONTROL. THE SECOND TIME SEVERAL MONTHS LATER WE LEFT THE FREEWAY WITH THE CRUISE CONTROL STILL ENGAGED AND COULD NOT SLOW THE CAR. WE RACED THROUGH HOOD RIVER, OR AT SPEEDS IN EXCESS OF 60 MILES AN HOUR RIDING THE BRAKE THROUGH TRAFFIC AND PEDESTRIAN CROSSWALKS- OUR BRAKES SMOKING. FINALLY THE DRIVER FOUND A PARALLEL PARKING PLACE TO SLIDE INTO AND WERE ABLE TO PUNCH THE BUTTON AND TURN OFF THE CAR. THE DRIVER HAVING THE CAR IN PARK TURNED THE CAR ON AGAIN . THE MOTOR WAS STILL IN FULL THROTTLE. THE DRIVER LEFT THE CAR TO FIND A RESTROOM. I STAYED IN THE CAR WITH THE ENGINE OFF. I REACHED DOWN TO THE ACCELERATOR PEDAL AND WITH LIGHT PRESSURE PULLED THE PEDAL UP. WHEN THE DRIVER RETURNED AND STARTED THE MOTOR IT WAS AT NORMAL SPEED. WE TOOK THE CAR TO GRIFFITH MOTORS IN THE DALLES ,OR ON THE DEC. 10, 2009. THE FACTORY REP DROVE THE CAR ( W/ 21,690 MILES ON IT AFTER HE DROVE IT) AND ON HIS REPORT WROTE "NO PROBLEM FOUND".
