WE BOUGHT OUR TOYOTA PRIUS, 2010 IN END OF JANUARY. IT HAS BEEN NOTHING BUT A GREAT CAR FOR THE MOST PART. BUT THREE DAYS AGO, FEBRUARY 11 AS WE WERE TURNING INTO THE PARKING LOT OF A BLOCKBUSTER (WHICH IS SOMEWHAT LOWER THAN THE STREET LEVEL) WE HAD A STARK AND UNUSUAL INCIDENT. AS I WAS TURNING RIGHT AND PUSHING THE BREAK PEDAL AS SOON AS THE CAR GOT WITH ITS RIGHT FRONT WHEEL OVER THE RIDGE THE CAR SPED UP AND LEAPED FORWARD AS IF I DID NOT USE THE BREAKS. THE CAR LAUNCHED GOOD THREE OR FOUR YARDS FORWARD BEFORE IT SLOWED DOWN AGAIN. IF WE HAD ANYBODY/ANYTHING WITHIN THAT DISTANCE WE WOULD HAVE HAD AN ACCIDENT. I AM NOT JUMPING ON THE BAND WAGON OF TOYOTA RECENT PROBLEMS AND IN FACT HAVE OWNED BEFORE THIS CARD PRIUS 2006 MODEL AND WAS HAPPY WITH THAT CAR. BUT THIS INCIDENT HAVE REALLY SCARED US RAISING QUESTION WHAT SHOULD WE DO TO INSURE IT DOES NOT HAPPEN AGAIN. CAN WE RETURN THE CAR OR CHANGE IT TO ANOTHER MODEL?
