1. AFTER TURNING OFF CRUISE CONTROL, VEHICLE ACCELERATED ON ITS OWN UP TO 95M.P.H. UNTIL I WAS FINALLY ABLE TO GET IT STOPPED BY PRESSING THE BRAKES TO THE FLOOR. AFTER GETTING THE VEHICLE PULLED OVER TO THE SIDE OF THE INTERSTATE, THERE WAS A LOT OF SMOKE COMING FROM THE FRONT BRAKE PADS. I RESTARTED THE VEHICLE IN AN ATTEMPT TO GET IT OFF THE INTERSTATE FOR FURTHER INSPECTION. AS I EXITED THE HIGHWAY, I TURNED THE VEHICLE ONTO THE OFF RAMP BUT THE VEHICLE DID NOT TURN AND DROVE US DIRECTLY INTO THE GUARD RAIL. I CONTACTED TOYOTA AND THEY HAVE DENIED THERE WAS ANYTHING WRONG WITH THE VEHICLE AND DISMISSED MY COMPLAINT.
