As a Toyota employee, I'm required by HR to say....

I'm wearing that to work on casual friday next month!

"Toyota. Moving Forward."

"In all seriousness though, should your car start to take off on you, shift to neutral and turn off your engine."

but only turn the key back to the "acc" position. Any further and you'll lock the steering column. Also, apply hard, constant pressure to the brakes. Don't pump them or you'll bleed pressure from the system and lose any assistance you get from power brakes. For ANY car, not just a Toyota.

...the more you know.

@24601: Good advice. This should be part of the test to receive a DL. Even if you do lock your steering wheel you're better off hitting something at 30 MPH than at 90 MPH.

Accelerators have been getting stuck for years and people panic. 25 yrs ago a woman almost drove a Ford of some sort right into my apartment but was stopped by a pole. Someone passing by reached in the drivers window and turned the engine off. She could have done the same except she was panicked.

Ordered this for my husband - he's a Ford mechanic. Should get some laughs at his dealership.

24601 - harder to turn off when the car doesn't have a key. The accident that gained a lot of attention was a police officer driving, they captured the 911 call of them saying they couldn't turn it off. Toyota's method required holding it for 5 seconds or something like that, which is a long time when you're trying to control a car careening along at high speed.

Definitely had a discussion about this in a PR class I'm taking yesterday and definitely bought it.

Toyota. Moving Forward. (Whether you like it or not.)

my glass half-full advice:

Toyota drivers: if you're caught speeding, accelerate to 90 and throw your arms around wildly. (http://twitter.com/snapster/status/10294450431)

This would be funny...if people weren't DYING from this problem.

its better to shift the car into Neutral to keep your brakes, power steering, and let the engine redline, ruining itself, then to loose your life not being able to control it.

I hope his TOYOTA is really fast, it's gonna have to be when Toyota's legal team starts chasing in their Prius'

lol. too funny. I wonder if they had the "how to stop the car if the brakes fail" in the user manual. If they did, it really is the people's fault.

@fueledbytrueman:
Exactly how many people do you think have died from this problem?

vote-for1vote-against

@azurefields: I completely agree. Just put the car into neutral, which will keep all your accessories running, and come to a controlled stop. Then worry about shutting the car off. Your engine bouncing off the limiter for a bit most likely won't cause any damage, they are designed to take that abuse.

Also, as a car enthusiast with a Toyota, I had to buy this shirt. Absolutely hilarious.

I need this shirt! I bought my first Toyota 5 years ago from http://www.1800autoland.com and I've fallen in love with Toyota. Aside from the recent problems, Toyota's are reliable cars and they look great.
