- Reports of New Problems With the Toyota Prius Emerge
Toyota is a brand that’s been taking a beating in recent weeks, and to date more than 8 million units have been recalled, mostly due to problems with the accelerator pedal sticking in an improper position. In addition, other reports have surfaced regarding problems with the braking system on the Toyota Prius, one of the highest-selling models of automobiles in the world.
However, even more reports are now emerging regarding another potential problem with the Prius, that being the possibility that the vehicle’s cruise control system is defective. More and more Toyota recall lawyers are being asked to help as the number of these problems appears to continue to grow.
The Latest Problem with the Toyota Prius
Recent reports have concerned a specific malfunction with the Prius. That potential defect deals with the cruise control function. When drivers hit the ‘Resume’ button on the cruise control to return to the speed at which the car was previously set, the Prius has shown a tendency to accelerate well beyond the original speed setting. This has led to several drivers having to take emergency action in order to avoid potentially catastrophic consequences.
Some reports have included the need to slam on the brakes at high speeds and to run the vehicle off the road while forcing the vehicle into neutral in an attempt to bring the car to a stop.
Toyota Denies the Problem
Clearly, Toyota is a company that’s fallen on hard times in recent weeks and months with more than one record-breaking recall. As of now, the company is denying that there is a problem with the cruise control function within the Prius, but as reports continue to grow in number, the scrutiny will only intensify.
One automobile safety watchdog group has stated that it has received at least 10 reports of serious problems with the Prius cruise control, and others are beginning to take notice.
If you or someone you love has been harmed or is at risk because of a defective Toyota Prius cruise control function, you need to contact a personal injury lawyer that is based in Phoenix, AZ at Phillips Law Group immediately to schedule a free initial consultation.

I tried a few previous law firms and none would take my car accident case with confidence they could get my anything. Phillips law group took my case and although it took around 4 years to get this case settled as I was in treatment, they never let up with insurance adjusters and they got me as much money as possible. They worked hard for me and advocated for me. Shoutout to key individuals who worked my case nonstop of the years, Robert Ross & Jasmine, you are AMAZING!
Definitely recommend! Awesome
Phillips law group has an amazing staff and i recommend them to everyone.
Jasmine Delgado is an amazing paralegal. She was patient, kind and extremely knowledgeable. Highly recommend Phillips law group
Liz was great
Two family members were in a bad wreck a couple of years ago, and as a result called Phillips Law to represent them. Montana Thompson was the attorney assigned to the case with the help of Nemo Farr as legal assistant. Mr. Thompson litigated a very generous settlement for both my stepdaughter and her son. Because my grandson is a minor, I decided to act as conservator for him to ensure the settlement was safe and secure. Montana helped with that process, but it was Nemo who went way above and beyond the call in finding a financial institution to use for the restricted account. There were some glitches in that process but Nemo helped navigate them with a calm expertise which belies his age. I would consider them both great representatives of the level of commitment to their clients and assets to their firm.
