I Am Writing About A Sudden Acceleration Problem I Had With My 2011 4×4 tacoma. On January 6th, I Was Returning From An Appointment. I Left The Parking Lot Going About 10-20mph, I Drove 1/10th Of A Mile Down The Access Road When I Went To Brake At The Intersection. As Soon As I Touched The Brake The Engine Dramatically Increased Its Speed And The Truck Started To Accelerate. I Immediately Applied Full Pressure To The Brake To Stop The Truck But The Engine Was Still Highly Rev’d And I Could Feel The Truck Trying To Accelerate. As Soon As I Shifted The Transmission Into Neutral The Engine Revs Went Back To Normal Idle Speed And The Truck Stopped Trying To Move Forward. Other Details Are That The Outside Temperature Was Between 10-20f, Roads Were Clear And Dry And The Truck Was In 2wd. After I Checked The Accelerator Pedal, It Was Free And Clear Of Any Obstruction That Could Have Made It Stick. The Truck Was Purchased New In Oct 2011 And Currently Had About 24k Miles On It. The Truck Had Been Driven About 5 Miles To The Appointment, Sat For About An Hour Before The Return Trip Home. It Was Fortunate That This Did Not Cause An Accident. Being Aware Of The Prior Sudden Acceleration Problems In The News With toyotas This Seems To Be A Case Where It Has Occurred On A 2011 Model. The Following Week I Submitted This Same Information To toyota.
0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died. Mileage was 23750 miles. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):3TMMU4FN5BM. TOYOTA TACOMA 2011 problem was reported in STRAFFORD, NH. Vehicle was not using ANTI-LOCK BRAKES. Vehicle was not using Cruise Control. VEHICLE SPEED: 15 mph.
