Skip to comments.I Am Not Afraid Of My Toyota Prius
Posted on 03/12/2010 2:40:45 PM PST by raptor22
Ive been driving Toyota Priuses since 2001. As a junior defense lawyer in the mid-90s, I litigated a number of bogus sudden acceleration cases that were brought against General Motors.
So the recent kerfuffle over alleged mysterious electronic problems with the Prius and other Toyotas has certainly caught my attention beyond just throwing my floor mat in the trunk. (snip)
The Los Angeles Times recently did a story detailing all of the NHTSA reports of Toyota sudden acceleration fatalities, and, though the Times did not mention it, the ages of the drivers involved were striking.
In the 24 cases where driver age was reported or readily inferred, the drivers included those of the ages 60, 61, 63, 66, 68, 71, 72, 72, 77, 79, 83, 85, 89and Im leaving out the son whose age wasnt identified, but whose 94-year-old father died as a passenger.

Uh oh. I’m 58 how, and I’ve been driving my Prius for the last 4 years. Will I need to sell in two year?
Plus, the recent example in California looks like it is was a hoax.
The whole thing is a big fake.
So you drive a Prius.....you’re gay?
With all the Politically Motivated movies being produced today....I wonder if....Stephen King will rewrite Christine...now as a Killer Toyota Prius! (I suggest AL Gore’s son to star)...LOL
+”...the recent example in California looks like it is was a hoax.”
Any idea what the motive was? Great American Lottery (lawsuit)?

That plus the guy has some sort of reality web site. But it turns out he is $700,000 in debt and in has filed BK...
My 84-yr.old mother-in-law, who is otherwise very strongly in control of her environment, applied the accelerator instead of the brake on her Lincoln Continental about 5 yrs. ago. She crashed into the side of a restaurant, with no injuries but a totaled Lincoln. She still can’t believe she did it, but at least she owned up to her mistake.
“The whole thing is a big fake.”
Yeah, I was showing my kid how to disengage the engine (called neutral). It took about 1.5 seconds. He’s 10 years old and asked, “Is that all you have to do?!?!”.
“Yup, that’s all”.
“Dad, then these people must be stupid and that’s why they died”.
I wanted to email him a “thank you”, but am not messing with the “create account” stuff: my email should be MORE than sufficient. But Mr Frank, if you happen to lurk, THANK YOU for validating everything I’ve said (in public, in a voice that tends to carry) since the first chirpy reports were gushed all over on CNN by enthusiastic unicorn chasers.
The panic surrounding the Toyota recall was more embarassing than the H1n1 stupidity (with us since the ‘90’s)

Two year? You may need to sell now, I think senility has set in already. ..l’ll give you $1500...cash
I figured as much.
The government kills many more than Toyota’s been accused of by forcing them into smaller cars: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2468420/posts
I drive a hybrid. Not Toyota.
“..lll give you $1500...cash”
I’m thinking, I’m thinking. It may take a while.
