    Toyotas problem: sudden acceleration, causing accidents

    Looks like Toyota finally has some quality problems too, but this sounds very weird.

    Imagine your car suddenly accelerates by itself and causes a crash:

    Re: Toyotas problem: sudden acceleration, causing accidents

    should I use this argument to explain why I have been "flashed" recently ?

    "the R8 suddenly accelerated, I could not do anything sir..;"

    Perhaps Toyota should have given one of these to Trulli - then maybe they'd still be in F1..

    indeed shifting is ancient technology - so is a fuel burning engine..  I happen to like both :)

    Re: Toyotas problem: sudden acceleration, causing accidents

    "Safety analysts found an estimated 2000 cases in which owners of Toyota cars including Camry, Prius and Lexus, reported that their cars surged without warning up to speeds of 100 miles per hour."

    Anyone who lets the car accelerate to 100mph is an idiot and shouldn't have a driving licence, The brakes will always overpower the engine.
