We Flew To Sea Tac (seattle Wa ) Airport From Slc Ut. We Planned On Attending A Family Gathering And Rented A Car From Hertz. We Have Owned A 2006 prius And Asked If They Might Have A New Model To Rent For Comparison On Our Part, Which They Did, However It Turned Out To Be A prius C, Which Was Not At All Like Our prius. The Traffic On The Freeway Was Stop And Go Slow On A Multi Lane Freeway And Were On An Inner Lane. ( I – 405 North Bound ) As I Rolled Up To What Might Have Been A Stopping Situation The Traffic Started To Move Forward, And As I Stepped On The Pedal To Move Forward, I Noticed That Nothing Was Happening And The Car Soon Came To A Complete Stop. The Car Was Absent And Visible Power, No Visual Information On The Mph Screen, The Emergency Light Would Not Work, I Was Nervous And Scared And Everything Had Gone Dark, I Did Not What To Do, I Tried To Move The Key Position The Cars Behind Me Started To Honk, And They Were Also Trying To Get Around Me, Just As I Was Starting To Call 911 For Some Help The Car Powered Back Up With A Message To Put The Car In Park And Start The Motor I Moved Out Of The Situation And Got Off The Freeway And Took Backroads To Reach The Motel, With The Intent To Never Drive This Car Again, The Next Am I Called Hertz And They Made Arrangements To Trade The Car Out At Our Motel, Which They Did. The Tow Truck Driver Indicated That The Problem On This Specific Car Was Caused By Its Software And He Was Aware Of Other Drivers Facing The Same Situation, But I Should Count My Blessing That I Was Not Involved In A Major Accident I Do Not Think This Car Should Ever Be Allowed On Our Roads Just Based On This Experience.

This Vehicle Is A Little Over 3 Months Old And Has Had electrical Problems Through This Period. When Put In Reverse On Occasion It Freezes And All The Lights On The Dash Go On And Stay On (including The Yellow Triangle) And The Car Does Not Move. The prius C Needs To Be Shut Down Every Time This Happens And Restarted To Work. This Has Happened 5 Times In The Last 3 Months Since Purchased New. Worse Yet, The Last Time When It Was Put In Reverse (yesterday) All The Lights Froze On The Dash However This Time The Car Lurched Forward Even Though The Gear Shift Was In Reverse And The Dash Said ‘r’ For Reverse. The Car Was Purchased New From The Dealer.

Driving Home (approximately 100 Mile Journey) – The “check Hybrid System” Light Came On And Car Warnings Indicated Needed To Stop Driving And Have Car Taken To Service Immediately. Had Car Taken To Dealer For “warranty” Service – Was Told A Rodent Had Eaten The High Voltage Wiring Insulation – Not Covered By Warranty. Have Had No Evidence Of Rodent Activity At Our Location, And Other Vehicles Parked Here Have Not Had Any Problems. Being Told $2700 Repair Not Covered By Warranty That I Need To Claim On My Car Comprehensive Coverage. Concerned That If It Is Rodent Damage, Is It Due To Materials Used That Are Attractive To Rodents (wouldn’t This Be A Problem For All prius Owners), Especially In Areas That Have More Of A Visible Small Rodent Population? Also, Don’t Know How To Prove It Was Manufacturer Or Design Defect – Asking Dealer To Document How They Came To Believe It Is A Rodent Problem.

0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died. Mileage was 14775 miles. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):JTDKN3DU2E1. TOYOTA PRIUS 2014 problem was reported in JACKSONVILLE, FL. Vehicle was not using ANTI-LOCK BRAKES. Vehicle was not using Cruise Control. VEHICLE SPEED: 60 mph.
