The contact owns a 2015 Toyota Corolla. After the vehicle was turned off and the key was removed from the ignition switch, the vehicle independently began to roll and crashed into another vehicle. A police report was not filed and there were no injuries. The contact stated that the vehicle began to surge for approximately a month before the failure occurred. The manufacturer was notified of the failure and sent a field supervisor to diagnose the vehicle. The failure was unable to be duplicated. The vehicle was not repaired.

Filing a complaint on behalf of our insured/policyholder. She was backing out of driveway in reverse and foot applied on brake, at this time the accelerator began surging and the vehicle while in reverse and brake being pressed went up in speed to possibly 35 miles per hour and across the street, hit curb and jumped curb, and the rear end ultimately struck a tree and came to a rest in the opposing home's yard. Research online such as the latimes.com shows that this year/make/model has had numerous complaints of accelerator surging occurring while the vehicle is in drive or reverse.

The steering wheel locked up and failed to rotate while I was making a left turn in a busy intersection. Using my full weight I was able to turn the wheel and thankfully oncoming traffic avoided hitting me. Toyota towed my car to the dealership. I have owned the vehicle for only two months, and it was purchased with less than 10 miles. After a day of testing, I was told that an electrical item malfunctioned. The piece has to be replaced and is on backorder. It was an extremely scary incident and unbelievable considering the age of my vehicle.
