- More Bad News for Toyota as Prius Comes Under Scrutiny
It seems that new problems arise with Toyota on almost a daily basis. The company has been hammered in recent weeks for historically enormous recalls that to date have affected more than 8 million vehicles. Up until this point the Toyota Prius has only been affected in a minor manner, as there were reports of problems with some of the models’ braking systems that were causing problems.
However, now comes word that more and more stories are emerging regarding Prius owners experiencing the same problem that led to the other Toyota recalls – unexpected acceleration. This latest issue is prompting yet another set of calls for help to Toyota recall lawyers.
The Latest Problems with Potentially Defective Prius Models
Specifically, incidents have been reported in both California and New York and in several places in between regarding a stuck accelerator pedal on Prius models. Fortunately for the most recent drivers and for everyone else given the technology available with cell phones, more than one of these instances involved calls to police that were recorded while the defect was causing problems.
While an incident in San Diego managed to avoid serious injuries to anyone, police instructed the driver to push down on the brake pad with force after the driver had attempted to manually lift the accelerator pedal to a normal position with no success. After that incident, the Prius in question had almost no material left inside the brakes.
The Potential for Future Problems with Defective Toyota Vehicles
While it seemed to most that the models affected by the defective accelerator pedal had been recalled in totality, it seems that more reports are emerging regarding different Toyota models that to date have not been subject to any of the numerous Toyota recalls. The risk is only heightened when one considers that the Prius is one of the highest-selling vehicles in the world. Hopefully, these defective Toyotas will not lead to a terrible disaster.
However, if you or someone you love has been harmed because of a defective Toyota, you need to contact a Toyota recall lawyer at Phillips Law Group today to schedule a free initial consultation.

Definitely recommend! Awesome
My review is for Kathy Hudson a legal assistant at the law firm. She is great! She is very professional and a fair based person. She was never rude to me and always called me back. She listened to me and had my best interest as number 1. Mr Nasir who is a supervisor at law firm also was very professional and helpful. Not sure if spelling his name correctly but sorry if not. As far as mr Ross and the lady that runs the front desk reception I would say they are the most unprofessional and rude people I have met at a law firm in my life especially beings they were representing me. But Kathy made it overall a better experience. Thx Kathy.
Jon Jamieson was amazing to work with . He came through with all of his promises.
Liz Gonzales was great!!!!
