Summary of Complaint

The contact owns a 2013 Toyota Tacoma.

The contact indicated that the brake pedal was being pressed at the time of the failure but the vehicle continued to accelerate. The driver sustained a mild head injury and one diner was also injured. No further information was available. A police report was taken at the scene and the vehicle was towed away.

Summary of Complaint

This issue has been ongoing. Taken into local Toyota dealer and was told they needed to replace entire rack and pinion at a cost of nearly $1500. Three days after picking up it is doing same thing. While steering around corner it will temporarily lock and suddenly it feels like it has no power steering. I am getting nothing but the run around from Wooster Toyota. My wife very nearly was in an accident because of this. This truck only has 80000 miles. [XXX] INFORMATION Redacted PURSUANT TO THE FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).

Summary of Complaint

REPORTING PROBLEMS WITH MY 2013 TOYOTA TACOMA VIN [XXX]: ALTHOUGH THE VEHICLE HAS BEEN VERY RELIABLE OTHERWISE, THERE ARE THREE SIGNIFICANT PROBLEMS I HAVE HAD WITH MY VEHICLE: 1. THE VEHICLE CAN EXPERIENCE SUDDEN ACCELERATION, NOTED ESPECIALLY WHILE IDLING. THE SET IDLE SPEED, WHICH THE DEALER HAS TOLD ME CONFORMS TO MANUFACTURER'S GUIDELINES, IS VERY HIGH, AND WHEN AT A STOP SIGN OR OTHER STOP, IT CAN SUDDENLY LURCH FORWARD. THE SUDDEN ACCELERATION, WHICH MAY BE LINKED TO IDLING WHILE THE AIR CONDITIONING IS ON, IS VERY ALARMING. IN ONE INSTANCE, LINKED TO WHAT I DESCRIBE IN ITEM 2, I BELIEVE THIS WAS A CONTRIBUTOR TO A CRASH INTO MY GARAGE, CAUSING CONSIDERABLE DAMAGE. 2. THE FLOOR MATS, WHICH WERE A MANUFACTURER'S ACCESSORY FOR THE VEHICLE, CAN EASILY BECOME DETACHED FROM THEIR EYELET HOOKS, AND MAY THEN SLIP UNDER THE BRAKE PEDAL. THIS WAS ALSO A LIKELY CONTRIBUTOR TO THE ACCIDENT DESCRIBED ABOVE. 3. THE SUN VISOR RETAINING BRACKET NO LONGER WORKS ON THE DRIVER'S SIDE, AND IT NO LONGER HAS THE REQUIRED TENSION TO HOLD IT UP. THE BRACKET ASSEMBLY IS A CHEAP PLASTIC BRACKET. I?M SURE TOYOTA CAN COME UP WITH SOME FIX AND CHANGE THIS FOR FUTURE MODELS.

IT WAS NOTICEABLE ENOUGH TO HAVE ME GET DOWN AND PHYSICALLY LOOK AT THE VEHICLE. I DID NOT SEE ANY OBVIOUS SIGNS OF DAMAGE OR ERROR, SO I WENT ABOUT MY DAY AS USUAL.

I PARKED THE TRUCK FOR THREE WEEKS AND WHEN I WENT TO START THE TRUCK, A BUNCH OF INSTRUMENT PANEL LIGHTS WERE FLASHING, WIPERS WERE WIPING AND INTERIOR LIGHTS WERE FLASHING OFF AND ON.
