Safety incident date:
Jan 17, 2015
Location:
Johnson City, TN

bought this car used just over a month ago. made a 1 hour trip yesterday with our 2 children. sudden unexpected acceleration caused me to almost wreck twice as i was entering the city we were visiting. one would've been serious due to location. both times occurred when i was decelerating to go around sharp turns by letting off the gas, but not using break. prior to entering town, the cruise had been set, but was turned off before issue occurred. i've been a loyal toyota owner for nearly 2 decades. we've owned 6 diff toyotas (tundra, tacoma, prius, 2 camrys, and a lexus ls 400) and have never experienced anything but great quality. unfortunately, the issue i experienced yesterday, with the negligent manner in which it seems toyota has handled these complaints from other owners, is serious enough to cause me to reconsider ever owning another toyota. if it can't be resolved (which it seems it can't), i'd really like to get my money back and get a different car now, since i've only owned this car about 6 weeks. very disappointed in my long time favorite auto manufacturer. very disappointed! i would welcome discussion on this matter.

Las Vegas, NV

gas pedal on occasion fails to move car forward, when it does the auto jumps forward. there is no pattern to this failure. auto feels like it does not have any suspension. when driving on highway at posted speed limits, auto bounces around turns as if it was going over small speed bumps in the road. we travel on a state highway and every imperfection is felt by all passengers, and can be seen in vibrations noticed in the steering wheel. the dealer has replaced the tires, but, this has not solved the problem, i was told by this dealer there is a problem with the auto, however, we had to leave this dealership before further action could be taken. our new local dealer can not find anything wrong, or says there is nothing wrong.

i had been driving app. 10 minutes in snow covered road conditions when i was approaching an interesection with traffic stopped for a red light. as i applied the brake to ease into a stop, the vehicle accelerated uncontrolably. i was in the center lane with stopped vehicles in front of me. i had to exert hard force on the brake pedal to finally bring my vehicle to a stop. the engine was at least over 4000rpms on the tachometer. whe traffic started moving again, i eased off the brake pedal and slowly applied gas and eased over in to the right(curb) lane. i stayed slow at about 15-20 mph and felt an acceleration again, but was able to brake successfully. i then turned right into the first available parking lot to gain composure before continuing on. i continued home at a safe rate of speed ( under 35mph). in the past 2 years there have been 3 other occurances of acceleration when braking but never to this extreme.

Location:
Concord, NC

i had used the coast on my cruise control to reduce my set speed from 78mph to 71mph, after about 50 yards, my cruise control sped up on its own to about 76mph before i tapped the brakes and cut the cruise control off. after about 3 minutes, i cut the cruise control back on and went to use the set button to set my speed at 71mph. when i pushed the set button, the cruise control did not 'lock in' to the 71mph but instead started to speed up beyond 71mph and at 75mph i tapped the brake and cut off the cruise control. the next day, the next three time i went to cut the cruise control on and went to push the set button to set it at the speed i was going, the car always took off beyond what i was wanting to set it at and causing me to tap the brakes and i was forced to cut it off because after i had tapped the brake and let off the brake it would start to increase speed again.

Pleasant Hill, CA

while in cruise control on an incline my rav4 accelerates out of control so i have to apply the brake to get it out of cruise control. i had this on 2 rav4s, both 2001, one was 4wd and the other 2wd. toyota tried to repeat the problem in the first vehicle by sending it home with a tech who drove to modesto. they could not repeat it...on my current car it does the same and toyotas best answer was not to use cruise control after he asked why i was using it anyways. i was worried about the ecus in these cars and before buying it, sent the private dealer to toyota to remedy this. now i find out they only flashed the ecu under the recall which they new didnt fix anything. now 2 years later i face the harsh shifting condition....all on me. im lucky not to hsve been hurt by either of these issues not addressed properly by toyota, and thank god my 9 year old wasnt with me when the car stopped shifting properly.

St. Louis, MO

our daughter was driving on highway 44 in missouri at or near grey summit missouri with the cruise control set on, when our 2008 toyota yaris started to accelerate on it's own. our daughter had to swerve to miss hitting other vehicle on the highway. she attempted to stop and the cruise control did not disengage. to avoid hitting another vehicle she steered the vehicle off the highway and crashed head on into trees. toyota hired bosch to have the "black box" analyzed. the company and bosch claim no malfunction of the vehicle. our daughter continues to dispute their claims and we have lost the vehicle in an insurance claim to aaa of missouri. in additional we have lost value in the vehicle, we are paying insurance accident penalties and lost $1000 in deductibles. we continue to dispute toyota and bosch's claim that there was nothing wrong with the vehicle. since our accident there has been additional evidence of "tin whiskers" as potential cause of electronic failure. we believe we have been the unfortunate victims of toyota negligence and need to request assistance in fighting this issue with toyota.

on december 24th 2014 i was driving my vehicle (2014 toyota corolla s) in (d) and was trying to slow down, because the driver in front of me braked. when i depressed my brake pedal the vehicle accelerated. i shifted into neutral and continued to brake and it eventually slowed me down. i shifted back into (d) and continued on my way, although shaken up. the road conditions were good, there was no rain or ice on the road that day. i checked my floor mats to see if they were sticking to the acceleration pedal when i got into the driveway, but i did not notice any such defect with the floor mats sticking to the pedal. a few weeks later driving to work on 01/20/2015 around the same speed on the same road conditions the vehicle gave me unwanted acceleration again while attempting to brake. i performed the same way i had previously, i entered into neutral and braked, except this time i came within inches of the vehicle forward of me. the next day on 01/21/2015 while driving to work the vehicle again performed the exact same malfunction as the previous day. on all days the road conditions were fine and should have not affected the vehicles performance. i decided to bring the vehicle to the dealership where i had leased the vehicle. i set up an appointment and had left it there 01/24/2015-01/26/2015. i received the vehicle back on 01/26/2015 and the master mechanic found no defects. i filed a complaint with the dealership and was told the service manager would contact me. after he had not for a few days, i decided to call him. i had gotten his voicemail and left a message. to date i have still not received a call back from the service manager. i have decided to take precautions and begin a vehicle safety complaint. i would like this matter resolved before myself or anyone else becomes injured or worse.
