Well, I own one, and I am not a happy consumer. I spent several months in early 2009 researching what my next vehicle would be. When all was said and done, Toyota came to the top of the list because of their safety record, resale value, and standing behind their service. So I happily went to the local Toyota Dealership a couple of times and test drove a couple different models. Finally in May I made my decision and purchased my new vehicle. Don't get me wrong, I love my vehicle, but now I am afraid to drive it!
I spent this morning on the phone with Toyota, and I found out that they still do not know exactly what they are going to do to fix the accelerator problems, and when they will even start those repairs. So I have a big old decoration sitting in my yard that gives me anxiety every time I think about driving it. I have read all the advice they have given about what to do if the accelerator sticks, and I have told anyone that might for any reason drive my vehicle, but I am still not convinced it is safe.
This is my 'Black Beauty'
I am hoping for a speedy outcome to the problems with Toyota vehicles, but I am not holding my breath. Meanwhile I am driving like a 'little old lady', oh wait, I am a 'little old lady', but I hate driving like one!
