Our 2000 Chrysler concord shot out a parking spot when my husband started the car. Toyota isn't the only vehicle with this fault. Children nearby were just missed. The car brushed one teen. We never had any previous issues like this. The car sped out of the space, hit another car in the next section over which hit another car in the next section over- not next to- but parking sections apart. All three vehicles were significantly damaged. DaimlerChrysler denied any malfunction. We had financial loss as a result of this incident.

  • Automatic transmission

While driving, the brakes and the gas felt like they were accelerating, it accelerated so bad the consumer ran a stop sign. The brakes would not stop vehicle. Had to put it in park, and the engine revved up over 100 mph, and the car was full of gas fumes. The brakes would not work, and consumer didn't touch the gas pedal. It kept accelerating. Consumer had no control of vehicle. It slowed down, but it wouldn't stop. The consumer had to pull the key out of the ignition to get the car to come to a stop. The consumer stated while driving, she experienced unwanted acceleration. The consumer continuously stepped on the brake, but could not get the vehicle to stop. The vehicle would slow down for a moment and then continued to pick up speed. It felt like the brake and accelerator pedal were being applied simultaneously. The consumer finally managed to get the vehicle to stop. The vehicle was towed to the dealer, however the next day the consumer was informed they could not duplicate the problem.
