Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2007 Toyota Prius Owner Comments

problem #1

Sep 272007

Prius 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 8,000 miles


The contact owns a 2007 Toyota Prius. While decelerating from 25 mph, the vehicle began accelerating. The contact depressed the brake pedal, however, the acceleration continued. The vehicle then drove over a curb, struck some bushes, drove down an embankment, and came to a stop when it became stuck in the mud. A tow truck removed the vehicle from the embankment and the contact drove it to her residence. The vehicle will be taken to the dealer for a diagnosis. She stated that the floor mat was locked in place. The manufacturer was notified and they will have an investigator look into the failure. The current and failure mileages were 80,000. The consumer stated after the cruise control was deactivated the light stayed on. The consumer believed the acceleration happened due to a glitch with the cruise control. Updated 12/11/07
