DRIVING 45 MPH DOWN BUSY 4 LANE STREET WHEN CAR JUST WENT OUT OF GEAR FROM DRIVE TO NEUTRAL AND WOULDN'T GO INTO GEAR. CAR CAME TO A STOP IN HEAVY TRAFFIC AND I WAS ALMOST HIT BY SEVERAL VEHICLES. HAD TO PUSH TO SIDE OF ROAD. CALLED DEALERSHIP AND THEY SENT A TOW TRUCK. THEY SAID THEY HAD NEVER HEARD OF THIS HAPPENING BEFORE BUT WHILE I WAS SITTING THERE WAITING FOR A RIDE I WENT ONLINE AND SAW THAT THIS HAS HAPPENED TO HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE. THE OTHERS AFFECTED BY THIS DEFECT SAID THAT HEAT CAUSES A MAGNET TO DETACH TAKING THE CAR FROM DRIVE TO NEUTRAL. I AM VERY THANKFUL THAT THIS DID NOT HAPPEN ON THE FREEWAY OR COULD HAVE CAUSED FATALITIES. TOYOTA HAS NOT RECALLED ANY VEHICLES OR MADE NOTIFICATION TO OWNERS. THIS IS DANGEROUS AND I'M ONLY PUTTING COMPLAINT IN NOW SINCE I DIDN'T KNOW HOW TO PREVIOUSLY. FOUND OUT 2 DAYS AFTER INCIDENT THAT THE DEALERSHIP HAS HAD THIS ISSUE WITH MORE THAN 100 VEHICLES AND THAT THEY WERE NOT BEING HONEST WHEN THEY SAID THEY NEVER SAW THIS BEFORE. TOYOTA NEEDS TO GET THE WORD OUT BEFORE SOMEONE IS KILLED.
