GAS PEDAL DOES NOT ACCELERATE WHEN FOOT GOES DOWN ON IT 4 TIMES -- I DO NOT HAVE EXACT DATES 1. EARLY NOVEMBER, 2010 1 INCIDENT 2. JANUARY, 2011 2 INCIDENTS 3. UNKNOWN UNKNOWN 1. COMING DOWN THE 405 AT THE 101 INTERCHANGE, MY GAS PEDAL DID NOT PROPEL MY CAR FORWARD. I COASTED TO THE SIDE, TURNED OFF THE MOTOR, STARTED AGAIN AND ALL WAS FINE. I REPORTED IT BY PHONE AND GOT AN APPT. TO HAVE THE CAR CHECKED. THE DEALER SAID THERE WAS NOTHING WRONG. 2. IT HAPPENED AGAIN AS I WAS COMING DOWN THE 101 INTO CAMARILLO. I STOPPED, RESTARTED AND WENT ON MY WAY. 3. IT HAPPENED AGAIN BUT NOT ON AN INCLINE. I WAS GOING ABOUT 10 MILES AN HOUR ON A FLAT PARKING LOT. GAS PEDAL DID NOT RESPOND AND I CREATED A TRAFFIC JAM BECAUSE I COULD ONLY COAST INTO THE PARKING GARAGE. HERE ARE MY NOTES REGARDING THIS PROBLEM MADE CALLS TO TOYOTA CORPORATE TOTALLY UNRESPONSIVE- TAKE IT TO DEALER AND LEAVE IT THERE OR JUST CONSIDER IT REPORTED . THERE WERE CALLS TO THE DEALER AND CORPORATE REGARDING 3 OF THE INCIDENTS. TOYOTA CUSTOMER SERVICE THE CAR WAS CHECKED 3 TIMES- ONCE AFTER THE FIRST INCIDENT AND THEN THE DEALER BROUGHT IN A COMPANY INSPECTOR - EACH TIME THEY FOUND NOTHING WRONG. THEY TOLD ME THAT THE ôBOXö SHOWED 4 INCIDENTS. HAVE NO IDEA WHAT THAT MEANS TOYOTAÆS ANSWER IS ALWAYS THE SAME-- THAT I AM PUTTING MY FOOT ON THE GAS PEDAL AND THE BRAKE AT THE SAME TIME!! THAT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO DO UNLESS ONE USES BOTH FEET. (I DO NOT DRIVE WITH BOTH FEET AND I CANNOT PUT MY FOOT ON BOTH PEDALS EVEN IF I WANTED TO) TOYOTA HAS NOT COME UP WITH A SOLUTION OR ACKNOWLEDGED THAT THERE IS A PROBLEM. I AM WORRIED THAT ONE DAY I WILL NEED TO ACCELERATE TO GET OUT OF DANGER AND THE GAS PEDAL WILL NOT RESPOND AGAIN. THERE IS SOMETHING WRONG WITH THIS CAR. TOYOTA DOES NOT ACCEPT THAT. THEY SAY IT IS DRIVER ERROR. YET IT'S PHYSICALLY IMPOSSIBLE FOR ME TO DUPLICATE
