NOVEMBER OF 2008 I BOUGHT A 2009 TOYOTA PRIUS. SINCE THEN I HAVE EXPERIENCED 4 INCIDENTS WHERE THE ACCELERATOR BECAME PARTIALLY DEPRESSED CAUSING AN UNPROVOKED ACCELERATION, THE MOST RECENT BEING ON SUNDAY, JANUARY 24, 2010. I CONTACTED THE TOYOTA DEALERSHIP WHERE I BOUGHT MY CAR THE VERY NEXT DAY (1/25/10) AND REPORTED ALL 4 INCIDENTS. I WAS TOLD BY THE TOYOTA REPRESENTATIVE THAT THERE WAS NOTHING THAT THEY COULD DO. I WAS GIVEN AN 800 NUMBER TO CALL TO REPORT MY CONCERNS. I RECEIVED AN AUTOMATED REPLY TELLING ME TO CALL BACK AT ANOTHER TIME. I HAVE BEEN CALLING BACK BUT TO NO AVAIL. I LIVE IN THE HIGH DESERT WHERE IT SOMETIMES SNOWS AND THE HIGHWAY CAN GET ICY DURING THE WINTER. I FEAR FOR MY SAFETY AND THE SAFETY OF OTHER MOTORISTS IF I CONTINUE TO DRIVE MY PRIUS DUE TO THE UNPREDICTABILITY OF THE ACCELERATOR STICKING. I AM RETIRED AND LIVE ON A MODEST INCOME AND CANNOT AFFORD TO PAY FOR THE REPAIR OF THE ACCELERATOR PROBLEM. IN THE INCIDENTS THAT I HAVE DESCRIBED THE STICKING OF THE ACCELERATOR WAS NOT CAUSED BY THE FLOOR MAT OR ANY OTHER ACCESSORIES.
