Toyota SCION TC Vehicle Speed Control problems : 1.
The Second Time This Happened To My vehicle I Was Driving On The Freeway At 7:00am On 2/6/12 On The 215 S. Going Around 75mph. The Accelerator Pedal Floored All The Way Down As If Someone Had Their Foot On It. I Panicked And Had No Idea What To Do But Press The Brakes. As I Pressed The Brakes The Car Jerked Me Around. I Noticed Cars In Front Of Me Starting To Slow Down As I Was Entering Traffic. By That Time My Car Was Going 100mph On Its Own Because I Had Removed My Feet From The Petals. I Last Minute Reacted And Put My Foot Under The Petal And Propped It Up Myself And It Immediately Slowed Down. When I Took It To The toyota Dealership In San Bernardino They Told Me There Was Nothing Wrong With It And I Had To Pick It Up. I Was Very Upset That They Were Not Taking Me Seriously Only Because I Was Not In An Accident. I Did Not Feel Safe And Returned The Car To Them After Having To Pay Them Some Money. I Asked What They Would Do With The Car And They Said They Would Resell It. When I Showed Concern For The Next Owners Safety They Told Me “it Is Not Your Problem Anymore” I Was Very Dissapointed Because I Have Been A Loyal toyota Customer Since The Day I Turned 18 And Have Only Bought toyotas. I Still Can Not Beleive That They Will Resell It The Way It Is After They Know What Has Happened To It Not Once But 2 Times Before, It Is Only A Matter Of Time Before It Happens To That Car Again. I Am Pregnant And Am Very Thankful That I Reacted On Time And Was Able To Prop The Petal Back Into Place If I Hadnt I Have No Doubt In My Mind That Me And My Baby Could Have Got Really Hurt Not To Mention The Other Drivers Around Me. Please Contact toyota And Have Them Do Further Tests On The vehicle Before It Results Fatal Once Again It Is Not The First Time This Has Happened To toyota. ( Also, I Had No Floor Mats In My Car At The Time Of The Incident). *tr
