MY WIFE AND I OWN A 2010 TOYOTA'S PRIUS. ON THE MORNING OF DECEMBER 15, 2010, SHE WAS COASTING THE VEHICLE INTO A PARKING SPOT AT HER OFFICE IN RESTON, VA. THE ACCELERATOR WAS NOT DEPRESSED AND THE BRAKES WERE NOT APPLIED. AS SHE GOT INTO THE SPACE, THE GAS ENGINE ENGAGED, NOT UNCOMMON AT VARIOUS TIMES, AND THE VEHICLE SUDDENLY ACCELERATED OUT OF CONTROL STRIKING THE CURB AND SOME BUSHES. THE VEHICLE SUSTAINED ABOUT $400 IN BODY DAMAGE AND SHE WAS INJURED. SHE CALLED THE DEALER WHO IMMEDIATELY REFERRED THE ISSUE TO TOYOTA CORPORATE. AFTER 6 WEEKS OF WAITING FOR A DECISION, TOYOTA SAID IT'S NOT THEIR PROBLEM. THE DEALER REFUSES TO EXAMINE THE VEHICLE DUE TO TOYOTA?S RESTRICTIONS AND WE CANNOT EVEN PAY TO HAVE IT EXAMINED AT THAT DEALER OR ANY OTHER. WE ARE LOCKED OUT OF ANYTHING EXCEPT TAKING THE VEHICLE BACK. NO WARRANTY WORK, NO MAINTENANCE WORK. NOTHING.
