IN MARCH 2009, WE PURCHASED A TOYOTA PRIUS AT THE TOYOTA OF NORTHWEST ARKANSAS TOYOTA DEALERSHIP OF ROGERS, AR. ON JULY 29, 2009, I PULLED UP TO THE CURB TO PARK AT A STRIP MALL. UPON APPLYING THE BRAKE, THE CAR LUNGED FORWARD. I TURNED RIGHT ON THE SIDEWALK AND THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE CAR RAN INTO A POST/UPRIGHT THAT HOLDS UP THE ROOF OVER THE SIDEWALK, DAMAGING THE RIGHT SIDE OF THE CAR (BOTH DOORS, ETC) AND THE POST/UPRIGHT. THE COST TO REPAIR THE CAR AND THE POST/UPRIGHT WAS APPROXIMATELY $5,300. THERE WERE NO PERSONAL INJURIES (THANK HEAVENS NO ONE WAS ON THE SIDEWALK). THE POLICE WERE CALLED AND THE POLICEMAN SAID IT WAS A NON-REPORTABLE ACCIDENT SINCE IT DID NOT OCCUR ON A STREET AND NO PERSONAL INJURIES WERE INVOLVED. WE SAW PRESS RELEASES CONCERNING FLOOR MAT PROBLEMS AND REMOVED THE FLOOR MAT. WE ALSO STOPPED AT THE DEALERSHIP TO INQUIRE IF THERE WAS SOMETHING MORE WE SHOULD DO AND WERE GIVEN A TELEPHONE NUMBER TO CALL. THE PERSON WE SPOKE WITH ASSURED US THAT THE PROBLEMS DID NOT PERTAIN TO THE 2009 CAR WE HAVE. HOWEVER, WITH THE WASHINGTON POST SAYING "TOYOTA SAID IT HAD CORRECTED PROBLEMS WITH THE ANTILOCK BRAKE SYSTEM IN PRIUS MODELS SOLD SINCE LATE LAST MONTH. BUT THE COMPANY WAS STILL DECIDING WHAT STEPS TO TAKE TO FIX THE PROBLEM IN PRIUS CARS SOLD . . . . BEFORE LATE JANUARY. OUR QUESTION: WHAT IS THE BEST COURSE OF ACTION FOR US?
