TOYOTA PRIUS 2005 car safety problem was reported on May 12, 2005.TOYOTA PRIUS 2005, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with ELECTRICAL SYSTEM . while car was going about 25 mph, it went from "drive" to "park". it stopped abruptly. could not get car back in drive except momentarily. the car's electric system cycled on and off on a 16 to 20 second period. that is, it would be on and in park and then shut off momentarily every 18 seconds. it continuted doing this for about 10 minutes when i stopped monoriting it. i had the car towed to a toyota dealer. when it was examined about 2 hours after the incident, it worked fine and there was no computer feedback on the problem. they didn't know what happened or what to do. they said to bring it back when the problem happened again. this could be a life threatening glitch if it occured at freeway speeds in traffic. i believe toyota should put all cars that this has happened to on the sidelines until they find out what the problem is and then come up with a fix. because of the real possibility of injuries, nhtsa should start an investigation and start pushing toyota to take this seriously..0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 15000 miles.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2005 car safety problem was reported on Apr 27, 2005.TOYOTA PRIUS 2005, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING . i had been driving my 2005 toyota prius at 40mph when i accelerated to pass a car and then had to stop briefly at a traffic light. when i pulled away from the light i noticed that the car felt very sluggish and wouldn't accelerate over 40 mph. i then realized that i was driving on the hybrid system only and that the engine had stalled. a big red exclamation point lit up on the dash and i was able to coast into a parking place off the highway. when i attempted to restart the car it did nothing. i called toyota service and explained my problem and he arranged a tow truck pick up my car but told me that since it was 5pm they wouldn't be able to look at it until the morning. the next morning they told me that the car started without incident and although they ran extensive testing they could find nothing wrong. they wanted me to come and pick it up but i refused stating that there definetly was something wrong with this car and that i was just glad that it didn't happen earlier in the day when i was on i-95 going 80 mph with a semi in back of me. i also told them that i had done some research on my own at priusonline and yahoo prius forum and found that there were more people who had the same problem and in most cases it was found to be due to a few codes that needed to be updated in the cars computer. i then asked them to check these specific codes. when i called back the next day they said that they ran the codes and found nothing and had taken the car for a long drive but had no problems. they released it to me and it has driven just as perfectly for me as it did up until the 1 second before it's engine quit without warning. i know that something potentially dangerous happened to my car that day and that there is just as much chance that it will happen again since nothing was fixed. i hope that you can help to avoid something potentialy tragic happening to me or someone else..0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 7134 miles.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2005 car safety problem was reported on Sept 30, 2004.TOYOTA PRIUS 2005, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with POWER TRAIN:AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION:CONTROL MODULE (TCM, PCM) . the shift-by-wire transmission selector in my 2005 toyota prius ignores my shift if i move the shift lever too quickly. this has almost led to several accidents. on my first day driving my prius, i was parked in a diagonal, on-street space. my view of approaching traffic was blocked by the vehicle beside me. when i backed out far enough into the traffic lane, i realized that traffic was coming. i needed to move forward quickly to avoid getting hit. i quickly moved the shift lever to d and accelerated. the car lurched backwards instead of forwards. i hit the brake and quickly but carefully shifted to d again. approaching traffic was now almost at my location. i accelerated again but the car lurched backwards, not forwards, again. the car had ignored both inputs from me and remained in reverse. luckily the approaching traffic slowed to avoid crashing into me, giving me time to slowly and deliberately move the shift lever to d. this time the car moved forward. i can easily shift the lever too quickly, which results in no gear change. toyota said this dangerous condition is normal for the prius. also, there is a column-mounted stalk too close to the dash-mounted gear shift lever. it is easy to momentarily put your hand on the wrong stalk when trying to shift gears. finally, the car loudly beeps whenever reverse is selected. this is inside, not outside i assume to let you know that you are in reverse. that loud, distracting interior beeper is a safety hazard. i was not aware of hearing it when i had the backing incidents described above but i am very aware of it when i am carefully backing up and trying to watch and listen for pedestrians, cars, etc. behind me. my toyota dealer told me that it cannot be disconnected. all drivers from owners to valets, expect the gears to change when they shift. the public should be warned about the prius until toyota makes a transmission fix such as retrofitting the cars with a conventional shift mechanism..0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 100 miles.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2005 car safety problem was reported on Apr 13, 2005.TOYOTA PRIUS 2005, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with ELECTRICAL SYSTEM . i did not have a failure, but i had an experience that i think would be helpful to you and toyota. my experience was accidently hitting my right knee lightly upward against the lever that is used to put the car in drive, park, referse and battery. i was traveling on the highway and was shifting my weight slightly to get more comfortable after i had been driving several hours. within a few minutes, looking at the dashboard, i noticed the car was in the "b" mode which i guess is called battery. i shifted back into drive with no problem. however my thinking is that if someone did what i did (in the way of accidently tapping the shift lever with their knee) and did not notice that the car had shifted to battery, after driving for some time (x hours or minutes) the batteries that drive the electric motor/engine would run down to the point where the car would stop running and could not be restarted because the batteries were so run down. also the engine would not start again because the batteries running the electric motor were not assisting in the drive of the car as designed. i noticed a note on a web site this evening that indicated the car would not run when the batteries were below a 20% charge. if this is correct, it would fit in with my theory. the shift lever needs to be harder to move so that accidental changes such as i experienced would be prevented. if this is too expensive, maybe a cheaper way to fix tghe problem would be for an alarm light or audible signal to go on when the battery propulsion had been going on too long unassisted by the gasoline motor. maybe i'm all wet, but i thought it wouldn't hurt to let you know my thoughts..0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Toyota Prius 2005 problem was reported in CORPUS CHRISTI, TX.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2005 car safety problem was reported on May 18, 2005.TOYOTA PRIUS 2005, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING:ENGINE:GASOLINE . while driving my 2005 toyota prius on highway at approximately 65 mph, the gasoline engine completely stalled but the electric motor continued to run allowing me to exit the highway, albeit at a reduced speed. i managed to drive approximately 1 mile to 1.5 miles until the electric motor battery was conmpletely depleted. the vehilce would not restart and i arranged to have it towed. while waiting for the tow service i tried to restart it a number of times and after 35 - 40 minutes it started and since then has had no issues. i believe that when it stalled on the highway the crusie control was set and there were between 1.6 and 2 gallons of gasoline remaining in the tank. this could have been a disaster if i was in heavy traffic in the fast lane as the car went from 65 mph to 35 - 40 mph in seconds! i also barely made it off of the highway and was actually sticking into the travel lane somewhat when the elctric motor also completly died. i notified toyota of the problem but no corrective actions were taken and they did not inform me of any issues..0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Toyota Prius 2005 problem was reported in ANDOVER, MA.

Toyota Prius 2005 Service Brakes, Hydraulic Power Assist Review #10124522

TOYOTA PRIUS 2005 car safety problem was reported on Apr 25, 2005.TOYOTA PRIUS 2005, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC:POWER ASSIST . 2005 toyota prius -- floormat becomes lodged between pedals. -- while driving at high speeds (60-70 mph) on the freeway, i noticed a loss of sensitivity on both the brake and gas pedals. i had to press very hard to get a reaction from either pedal. as a result i was unable to keep driving at the same speed as the surrounding cars. everything else seemed to be operating normally. the sensation continued for a few minutes until i could safely pull off of the freeway. upon investigation, i realized that the floormat had come unhooked from its restraints and stuck between the pedals and the floor. i secured the floormat to its hooks once again and continued driving without trouble. this has happened a couple times since, but i recognize the symptoms and fix it promptly. however, i fear that another owner might experience this when they need to brake or accelerate suddenly to avoid an accident. (i noticed another posting that described the same problem). perhaps toyota should install locking hooks rather than the current ones that easily twist and unhook from the mats..Mileage was 6000 miles.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2005 car safety problem was reported on Apr 07, 2005.TOYOTA PRIUS 2005, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING . reported incident to toyota customer support -- incident: 050412-000111 responses received from toyota was that the computer was fixed based on a technical service bulletin. no recurrence since the fix. to: toyota customer support sir or madam: i bought my 2005 prius new from mechanicsville toyota on december 1, 2004 and generally was quite satisfied with the car and the great gas mileage it provides. however, last thursday, 4/7/05, with 4738 miles on the odometer, while driving home from work, all the lights on the dash went on including the master warning light, check engine light, vsc light, and the multi information display is showing the red hybrid system warning light. the car lost power and i had to limp it home. the energy consumption display for the battery pack showed one red bar and the fuel gauge had two bars left. i called toyota roadside assistance which promptly dispatched a tow truck and delivered the car to the dealer. the dealer did a diagnostic test the following morning, friday, 4/8/05, and could not find anything wrong. the only explanation i got was that this is a known isssue with 2 bars of fuel left and the cause was that the engine sucked in air with stops or turns. is there a further explanation or fix for this problem? i feel that this is a safety issue. i cross railroad tracks to and from work daily and definitely will not want this car to stall on the tracks or anywhere on the road. my wife and i are a multiple toyota owners: 95 camry wagon and 93 previa. i used to own an 83 tercel and my wife and step daughter have and still own a 96 tercel. these cars have been extremely reliable so that my experience with the prius comes as a shock. i look forward to hearing from you on this safety issue. sincerely, apolinar ilog glen allen, va email: pilog@comcast.net .0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 4738 miles.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2005 car safety problem was reported on Jan 01, 2005.TOYOTA PRIUS 2005, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with POWER TRAIN:AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION . i have an early 2005 prius which has "stalled" i.e. lost al engine power on two occasions. i believe the "stalling" is intentionally designed into the software to protect the transmission. i think a design decision intended to protect the car is putting my life at risk. my early 2005 prius has "stalled" twice: once on the freeway at 80 mph when i had to jam on the brakes (someone cut me off) and again on surface streets at 30 mph when i floored it to accelerate suddenly. in each case the transmission's internal components would be under tremendous strain unless it disengaged. in each case all lights, headlights, indicators stayed on, the "check engine" light came on, the car continued coasting (as if put in neutral), and the car was unresponsive to the throttle and the gear shift. (in neither case did i hit the gear shift nor power button before the "stall"). in both cases i coasted to a safe spot (try crossing five lanes of 70+ mph freeway traffic at night while coasting). only after parking, turning off power, and restarting power would the car operate...at which point it operated fine. dealer couldn't find anything wrong...in fact the second incident was two days after my 30,000 mile service! they apparently took no action regarding the concern i expressed to the service rep with respect to stalling...he assured me they would check for all available software updates, but corporate told me today there is at least one update (relating to the navigation system) which was not downloaded, so apparently the dealer is not responding to this life-threatening concern. i called corporate today to start a "case" and was told they are unaware that this is a recurrent issue. this despite discussions in the press and on hybridcars.com. i am contacting you in case i am killed or injured before toyota figures out that this is a serious and recurrent issue. the first incident was around january or february 2005, and the most recent was monday sept 19 2005. *jb.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 25552 miles.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2005 car safety problem was reported on Oct 21, 2005.TOYOTA PRIUS 2005, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL:CRUISE CONTROL . the critical safety concern is noted as follows: on october 21, 2005, i was traveling with the cruise control active at 55 miles per hour. upon approaching a slower vehicle and checking traffic, i proceeded to accelerate the vehicle in an attempt to quickly pass the vehicle driving before me. upon successful passage of the vehicle, i let off the accelerator and pressed the brakes several times, but the vehicle continued to accelerate under full power. under the conditions, i tried to quickly disrupt this safety critical issue. to the best of my recollection i tried to slow the vehicle by pushing the power button, manipulating the cruise control lever, and putting the vehicle in neutral. all attempts were unsuccessful. under considerable distress, traveling approximately 20 miles over the posted speed limit at this point, and continuing to accelerate, i elected to apply full braking force to the prius while "laboring" the vehicle to a standstill on the gravel shoulder of the road. regaining my composure, i pushed the power button, and the vehicle shutdown. the cabin of the motor vehicle exhibited a strong odor reminiscent of electrical motor smell. no root cause has been found to date. vehicle was driven by dealer and issue was re-created during initial test-drive from porter. *jb .0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 7300 miles.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2005 car safety problem was reported on Jan 14, 2006.TOYOTA PRIUS 2005, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING:ENGINE . i took my prius in for recall, noted in pe05029, on or about december 9, 2005. i had no problems with the prius before the recall but did the recall because of the problems others were having. i had 25,000 miles with no problems before i took the car to toyota to do the recall. since then on two occasions, on or about january 14, 2006 and on or about january 16, 2006, i have had the engine start to rev up while at a stop light with my foot on the brake. i drive using only one foot so the gas pedal did not have anything. the engine seemed to rev to about 2000 rpms. this is an estimate on my own part from the sound and not a measurement. on the first occasion i turned off the climate control as i was proceeding to shut down the car and the engine returned to normal idle and then turned off as it normally would at a stop light. i left the climate control off and continued to drive when the light turned green and had no more problems that day. on the second occasion i eased up slightly on the brake pedal to see if the engine was actually propelling the car forward and the car moved forward but no stronger than it normally does with the electric motor. so, the engine although revving up seemed to be disconnected from the drive train. i believe i noticed on both occasions that the battery was fully charges with no white space at the top as usual. probably because the engine runs more anyway since the recall as can be noted by the loss in fuel economy. i reported it to the dealers service representative that i took the car in for recall and was told that unless it was a repeatable problem they probably would not be able to find anything. i requested that he report it to toyota anyway. *nm.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 26000 miles.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2005 car safety problem was reported on Jan 26, 2006.TOYOTA PRIUS 2005, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING . 2005 toyota prius went into a sudden engine stalling mode. i do realize that toyota has a recall on such vehicles, but the toyota dealership that i took it to, the same place where i bought the vehicle, that had a "prius expert" has been diagnosing this problem for a day with no answers / anticipated fix date. this is annoying to say the least, as toyota does not seem to have taken the time to train it's dealerships on their own recall information. i could steer and operate the vehicle in electric only mode. pressing the power key would not power off the car. hence the battery started to drain. opening the passenger door and pressing the power key, seemed to have been able to stop the car, not sure whether this was timing, or some coincidence. starting the car again, made the gasoline engine come on for the purpose of replenishing the charge for the battery, with the dash still displaying the same issues. also, pressing the accelerator again, does not raise the rpm of the gasoline engine. its stalling continues after a power cycle. *ak.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 10100 miles.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2005 car safety problem was reported on Nov 24, 2006.TOYOTA PRIUS 2005, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with EQUIPMENT:MECHANICAL:JACKS . my front passenger-side tire sidewall blew out on november 24, 2006 when a nail penetrated the tread area. at the time of the incident, i changed to the pony spare. this was accomplished with great difficulty due to a woefully inadequate jack supplied by toyota with my 2005 prius. the jack bent while trying to lift the automobile. lifting the car was attempted three times by slightly repositioning the base of the jack. it was finally necessary to brace the jack with pieces of wood in order to lift the automobile high enough to remove the damaged tire. the pony spare had to be deflated to get it into place in order to apply the lug nuts due to the inability of the jack to lift the car for adequate clearance. luckily i had an electric air pump on board to re-inflate the pony spare. the entire operation took 1 hour 45 minutes. several points should be made. i am not an idiot. i have changed flats previously. the jack was new as supplied with the prius purchased in late 2004; it had never been used. the tire change occurred on an almost completely flat surface. the base of the jack was resting on cement. the weather was good; no ice, snow, wind or rain. my lighting was good. i lifted the prius where indicated. i had blocked the rear tires with bricks prior to attempting to lift the car. the car was not loaded with additional weight. i am very disappointed about the quality of the jack that was supplied with the prius. as a consumer, one would not think of inspecting such basic safety equipment prior to deciding on an automobile. the automobile could have easily slipped from the jack during the tire changing operation. severe injury could occur to the individual(s) or the vehicle itself. my father recently bought a prius at my suggestion prior to this incident. i now fear for his safety knowing how inadequate the jack is that is supplied with this vehicle. *jb .0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):JTDKB20U250.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2005 car safety problem was reported on Dec 14, 2006.TOYOTA PRIUS 2005, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC:ANTILOCK . on december 14th, 2006, i was driving my 2005 toytota prius from berkeley, ca to monterey, ca. at 18 miles outside of monterey. ca, and while still on the freeway traveling at 65 mph, a continuous loud and high frequency buzzer went on and the panel warning lights went on including the red brake light on the panel. i pulled off a freeway exit near castroville, ca and stepped on my brakes to slow into the exit, the brakes did not work until i stomped on them with much pressure. i turned off the engine, waited a few minutes and turned the engine back on. i drove back onto the freeway to monterey, ca at approximately 35-40 mph, when i drove into town once again the buzzer and red brake lights went on.i pulled over to the curb and had to stomp on the brake again. the car was towed to a toyota dealership in seaside ca. the vehicle was tested and i was shown a test form indicating that there was a computer malfunction listed as cm1300. the conclusion of the mechanic was that it was possible that a replacement part may be needed which would take a few days and that there was some reference to my use of skid control at the time of the malfunctions that i experienced. i was told that i could drive the car home and that i should stop every 15 miles to stop and reboot the car again to prevent the malfunction from occurring again. i was told that if the malfunction occurred again that i should stomp on the brake really hard and the skid control would somehow be activated. i made it home safely and drove as advised to. i took the car the next morning to berkeley, toyota and was informed that the test drive and their testing showed no malfunction and that i should take the car home, but the malfunction might occur again. i find this an unsatisfactory response. i am extremely fearful of driving the car without an explanation to why the car malfunctioned in a very dangerous way where it was difficult to use my brakes!! *nm.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 25568 miles.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2005 car safety problem was reported on Mar 02, 2007.TOYOTA PRIUS 2005, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC:FOUNDATION COMPONENTS:DRUM:SHOES/LININGS . march 2, 2007 5:01 pm on september 7, 2006 it rained and my car had been in the parking lot all morning during the rain. i drove it from work to a bus stop with clients in the back seat. when i depressed the brakes, the car slowed and at approximately 15 mph, the brakes grabbed and all occupants were jolted forward. i have never experienced this before. this has happened repeatedly when the brakes are wet from rain. after discussing with toyota i explained the problem to the toyota team leader at my dealer. before test driving the car, he said he would take it inside and pull the tires and inspect the brakes. i was then advised by service manager that the rear brakes (drum) were filled with brake dust. i find it inconsistent that the large accumulation of brake dust did not exist about 8,000 miles ago when the grabbing condition first presented after i had driven without the problem for about 21,000 miles. (car now has about 30,000 miles.) i find it very strange that the "large accumulation of brake dust" was not found when the brakes were inspected by morristown toyota on 2/16/07 when the warranty work was done and the brake issue was presented. after leaving morristown toyota i phoned my mechanic. he said that there was no buildup of dust at any time the brakes were pulled. i watched him perform both services in september and 500 miles ago (i have the next change sticker in my car set for 5,000 miles and only 500 miles have elapsed since the last change). i change the oil every time the computer indicates that the car is due for service and, since september, it was during those oil changes that the mechanic would pull the wheels, check the brakes, clean the brakes (in september) and rotate the tires. i believe the brakes are defective and dangerous. it has nothing to do with the rear drums suddenly being filled with brake dust (which, based on the fact that the brakes were checked on february 16th by morristown toyota, was generated in 2 weeks). *jb .0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 22000 miles.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2005 car safety problem was reported on Mar 31, 2007.TOYOTA PRIUS 2005, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with STEERING . we own 2 toyota priuses. one is a 2003 (the older style) and a 2005. in 2004, i was driving the 2003 on the freeway. a panel truck was to my right. it started to come into my lane so i swerved to avoid getting hit. the car started to skid and slide. the car first fishtailed, then went to the hard right (i think) , the left and then i lost total control of the car. the car did a 180 in the middle of the freeway. when it came to a stop, i was able to turn the car around and continue down the freeway. luckily the engine did not shut off so i was able to get out of this precarious position. i also lucked out b/c the freeway was not busy and the other cars were able to avoid me. yesterday, our entire family was in the 2005 prius. we were on two lane highway in northern california. we were in the fast lane. a police car came up behind us with lights flashing. by the time my husband saw him fast approaching, there was no where to go. there was a car to our right. my husband tried to go onto the shoulder (probably hit some gravel) and the car went out of control. it was very similar to my experience. the car started shaking and fishtailing , then i think we went to the right, then left and then slammed into the guardrail. both airbags deployed and injuries were extremely minor (bumps and bruises). i am concerned b/c both cars quickly went out of control when sudden moves were executed. i have never had a car do this before. i hope it is just a coincidence because we love these cars. *jb.Vehicle was involved in a crash. 0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Toyota Prius 2005 problem was reported in DAVIS, CA.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2005 car safety problem was reported on May 15, 2007.TOYOTA PRIUS 2005, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with VISIBILITY:REARVIEW MIRRORS/DEVICES:INTERIOR . accident in raleigh n.c. on us-1. heading north on us-1 and making left across 3-lanes of south bound traffic broadsided another vehicle , causing it to turn over. i was driving a 2005 prius. after much intense thought as to why i did not see the other vehicle after i observed all lanes to be clear i realized that the vehicle that was traveling in the 3rd lane further set from me must have been hidden behind the rear view mirror of the prius. the windshield was very sloped ,and the rear view mirror set low, especially for a tall person such as myself. looking toward the right put the mirror at an even lower level that tended s to hide a portion of the lane. this could be a real tragic problem if not known to the driver that this was a possibility in a similar situation. *ak.Vehicle was involved in a crash. 1 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Toyota Prius 2005 problem was reported in FREDERICKSBURG, VA.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2005 car safety problem was reported on Sept 16, 2007.TOYOTA PRIUS 2005, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with SUSPENSION:AUTOMATIC STABILITY CONTROL (ASC) . the traction control on my 2005 prius is dangerous. this is a well-documented problem (www.priuschat.com) . toyota will not fix the problem. the problem is that when the car hits even a small patch of water and the tires slip, the engine shuts down for way too long. so, when accelerating rapidly from a stop, for example, if the tires happen to spin, the car just coasts for way too long. this is especially dangerous when accelerating rapidly onto a freeway from a stop, which i have to do frequently. my entrance onto the 101 in hollywood requires this type of acceleration, and i dread it every time i do it. i own a 2005 prius. do a search on www.priuschat.com using the term "traction control" to see many other similar complaints. this is the first complaint i have ever filed, and i really hope something can be done about it. *jb.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 1000 miles.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2005 car safety problem was reported on Nov 01, 2006.TOYOTA PRIUS 2005, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL . i have a 2005 toyota prius, purchased in september 2006. ever since i've owned my 2005 prius, i have experienced unintended acceleration on a regular basis. it most often happens on a particular street in my neighborhood where i need to stop before entering a main thoroughfare. there is a very slight decline just before the road terminates at an intersection. i'm always traveling at a relatively slow speed (15-20 mph), coasting and not depressing the gas peddle when it occurs. just at the point where i begin to brake, the car suddenly lunges forward and accelerates. i have to hit the brakes, and the car feels like it's still going forward, and the traction control light on the dashboard comes on. this first time it occurred was during the winter following purchase of my car. initially i thought that the car performed poorly in snow because the traction control light was coming on. but then after that first winter passed and the roads were completely dry, it happened as well and continues to happen regularly. fortunately it always happens under these very particular circumstances when i'm not traveling fast, otherwise i fear not being able to stop the car and plowing into a main street, or hitting a car in front of me, or worse hitting a pedestrian. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 1000 miles.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2005 car safety problem was reported on Feb 15, 2007.TOYOTA PRIUS 2005, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with ELECTRICAL SYSTEM: SOFTWARE . we have two 2005 toyota priuses which have exhibited identical stalling and shifting problems. the hybrid system will stall or not operate and will not allow us to shift the vehicle into gear periodically. one toyota dealer says we need to replace the transaxle, and another was not sure and said there best "guess" was to refresh the ecu and hybrid control module software , however after doing extensive research online believe it to be a combination of a software glitch attributed to a leak in waterproofing a gasket near an ecu. the problem was brought to the dealers attention almost a year ago while the vehicles were still under warranty. all they did was simply "flash" or refresh the memory and did not actually resolve the problem. the prius' hybrid-related components, including the hybrid control module are covered for 8 years/100,000 miles. we also mentioned to the dealer the unusual and excessive tire wear on both vehicles, some of the tires had no tread and were already bald after only 12,000 miles. i am wondering if this could be related to the steering or traction control issues prevalent with this model. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 55000 miles.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2005 car safety problem was reported on Feb 22, 2008.TOYOTA PRIUS 2005, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with EXTERIOR LIGHTING:HEADLIGHTS . my vehicle is a 2005 toyota prius with trim package #9, including high-intensity discharge (hid) headlamps - the only ones available in the only vehicle available to me, so these were not an optional purchase. i was confident in the expected long service life of hid bulbs but had one fail at 41,000 miles in a pattern very similar to others described online - intermittent difficulty getting one headlight to turn on, followed by dimming and a pink tint in the light, and finally complete failure. despite the history of priuses having early hid failure, the dealer was only able to suggest that i pay for a bulb replacement, for about $350. given that hid lighting systems are supposed to be much longer lived than this, i must suspect that there is a flaw in the prius's hid electronics that is causing bulbs and/or other components in the hid lighting chain to fail much sooner than ever expected, if not unexpectedly. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 40800 miles.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2005 car safety problem was reported on July 14, 2008.TOYOTA PRIUS 2005, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with ELECTRICAL SYSTEM . i own a 2005 toyota prius. i purchased it in march 2005. last week, my multifunctional display (mfd) ceased to operate correctly. the mfd initialized to the mpg screen but had unusual colors. i attempted to change the display screen by selecting the audio, climate, display, and info buttons but to no avail. the screen would go blank and then show the ?prius hybrid? initializing screen and then return to the mpg screen. as i was nearing my 80k service, i contacted my dealer and reported the problem. they diagnosed the mfd as being unserviceable that next saturday. the service representative made the comment that it was common for the mfd to go bad. to replace the mfd with a new one, it is $4,000.00 plus installation. that is 19% of the cost of the vehicle when it was brand new! i began researching and found that toyota had issued a technical service bulletin on 10 january 2005 title: multi-display functions are inoperative; tsb# el002-05 which identified issues with the mfd. also in browsing the web specifically www.priuschat.com and http://autos.groups.yahoo.com/group/prius-2g/ and saw that i was not the only one with this problem. one electronically gifted person disassembled his mfd and diagnosed the problem as improper soldering on the circuit card (see http://techno-fandom.org/~hobbit/cars/mfd/compare.html ). it seems that toyota corporation was aware of the problem and were not disclosing it hoping that the faulty mfd?s would not be discovered until the vehicles exceeded the 3 year 36,000 warranty. i know i am outside the mileage warranty, however, i am just passed the 3 year window. i purchased and use my car as a commuter vehicle driving almost 100 miles per day. as a maintenance officer in the us army, i know there are components that are mileage dependent (engines, transmissions, differentials) but this is not one of them. electrical components are built to last the majority of vehicles life, not just until the warranty expires. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 80000 miles.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2005 car safety problem was reported on Aug 20, 2008.TOYOTA PRIUS 2005, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with TIRES . i purchased a 2005 toyota prius and drove it for 12,00 miles at which time the tires were completely wore out. when i went in to toyota and pointed this out they replaced the tires because the car was still under warranty. i take my car in for the scheduled services recommended by toyota. to date my car has 25,000 miles and i am experiencing the same problems with the tires. therefore the tires only have 13,000 miles wear. i called toyota and spoke to the head manager who indicated that the prius cars have this problem because of the battery and toyota is aware of this. if they are aware of this problem, why do they use the goodyear tires which wear out so quickly? i have also read on the internet of other prius owners experiencing the same problem with the tires and having blow outs on freeways, etc. i think there should be a safety recall on toyota prius tires since upon reading information on the internet there have been a multitude of owners who have experience the same problem as i. they should put safer tires on the car since they are aware of this situation. *tr.Mileage was 12000 miles.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2005 car safety problem was reported on May 20, 2008.TOYOTA PRIUS 2005, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with EXTERIOR LIGHTING . we noticed shortly after we bought our 2005 toyota prius that the headlights did not shine far enough in advance of the car to properly illuminate the road. when we complained to the dealer, they checked it and said that the lights were set properly so as not to shine in the face of approaching car. now the automatic sensor warning light warning of a problem illuminates and indicates headlight problems any time we have anyone in the back seat of the car. despite having high intensity headlights offered in this package (package 4), we still do not feel safe driving this car at night because the headlights illuminate only about 15-20 feet in front of the car, even at 'high beams.' i don't want to blind someone, but i do want to see the road more than 20 feet in front of me. i am indicating the problem began in may, 2008 because that's when the sensor warning light started to come on, but this has been a problem with this car pretty much ever since we bought it. the dealer says there is a bulletin out about it, but wants to charge us about $500 to fix it since it is 8,000 miles past warranty. had i known that others have identified this as a problem (www.priuschat.com), i would have been more insistent before the warranty ran out. this car really is unsafe to drive at night, especially here in rural maine where we have many large animals on the highways at night (including moose). *tr.Mileage was 100 miles.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2005 car safety problem was reported on Sept 07, 2008.TOYOTA PRIUS 2005, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with EXTERIOR LIGHTING . our 2005 prius recently developed a problem with the automatic-leveling headlights. warning symbols appeared on the dash. as we were driving, we noticed that the headlights were aimed much higher than usual, so that the low beams appeared more like high beams. in the course of this trip, we stopped briefly and turned off the car. when we resumed our trip, we noticed the headlights were now very low, so low that we dared not go over about 20 mph. we scheduled a visit to our toyota service department; but while the warning lights were still on, the headlights were now aimed normally. prior to this service visit, an internet search revealed that a number of 2004-2005 priuses have experienced a problem with the sensor in the rear of the car, in the vicinity of the left rear tire well, that measures the load on the rear end and adjusts the headlights accordingly. toyota has published a technical service bulletin on the problem. it appears that in a number of priuses, the sensor is defective, but the problem is intermittent and difficult to detect. i shared with the dealer what i knew about the problem, e-mailed (at their request) the tsb, and asked that even though our car was recently out of warranty, since it had only 25,000 miles on it and the problem was clearly a systematic manufacturing defect as well as a potential safety hazard, the manufacturer should remedy the problem at no charge. during my discussion with the service adviser, he admitted that while no fault code could be detected, the only possible cause of the problem had to be the sensor. the service advisor said there was no way toyota would cover the repair; that already in the past month, 15 of these units had to be replaced in the region and none of them had been covered by warranty. however, the service advisor indicated the dealership itself would cover the part ($470) if i agreed to pay for the installation ($200). i did so and the problem has now been remedied. *tr.Mileage was 25258 miles.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2005 car safety problem was reported on Dec 29, 2008.TOYOTA PRIUS 2005, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with EXTERIOR LIGHTING . the driver's side headlight on my 2005 prius was going on and off and then went out all together after about 3 weeks. when i took it to the toyota dealer they said the bulb and labor would be $320 and the computer that controls that one headlight was also out and that would be $250 - so it would be almost $600 for 1 headlight!! i think after reading many other prius owner's similar complaints on the internet that this is a design flaw and also an outrageous, unfair charge to consumers for an item that must has to work in order to use the car. i feel before i bought the car i should have been informed of the cost to repair a headlight and that some prius' have regular headlights on them and i should have been given a choice. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Toyota Prius 2005 problem was reported in LAKEWOOD, CA.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2005 car safety problem was reported on Feb 27, 2009.TOYOTA PRIUS 2005, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with EXTERIOR LIGHTING . i have a 2005 toyota prius (pkg 6) with appr. 18,000 miles. about a month ago, by driver's side headlight started to go out (going off and on) until it finally went out completely. on february 27, 2009, i took the vehicle into the dealer (longo toyota in el monte, california), who told me i would have to spend $358 (parts and labor) for just the one headlight. after much discussion with the service rep at the dealer and the toyota sales rep, toyota agreed to pay for the replacement of both headlights with me paying for the labor of the replacement. the total cost to me for the labor was $201.76. if toyota hadn't agreed to pay for the replacement of the bulbs, i would have been out of pocket $716.14 (parts and labor). as it was, i still had to pay $201.76 for the labor. it is my opinion that a vehicle that is only 3-1/2 years old should not have to have it's headlights replaced. i also understand from talking to the service rep and doing further research that this is a common occurrence even in much younger prius'. i feel that this problem needs to be researched further by the nhtsa and a determination made on whether there needs to be an official recall for the headlight replacement problem on prius'. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 18249 miles.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2005 car safety problem was reported on Apr 14, 2009.TOYOTA PRIUS 2005, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with STEERING . i was backing up from a parked position, i turned the steering wheel to proceed forward and heard and felt a crunch. i put the car in drive and had to stop before hitting a parked vehicle because the car was not going in the direction i steered. i soon realized that i had lost all steering control. i had it towed and my local mechanic evaluated the steering column and found what he thought was a manufacturing or assembly defect. thinking that my car may not be the only one affected i made some calls and researched the internet. i found that this car had a recall published 6/2006 for this very problem. i am the 3rd owner of this vehicle. the previous owner bought it from a reputable toyota dealership, with the logo "certified used" on the sales receipt. he purchased the vehicle from the dealer after the recall notice had been published. it appears the dealership did not check for recalls before "certifying" this vehicle. this could have been a catastrophic event at high speeds for me, my family or someone driving by me at the wrong time. i will submit a second complaint if the dealership and/or toyota does not handle this appropriately. *tr.0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 62000 miles.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2005 car safety problem was reported on Oct 21, 2009.TOYOTA PRIUS 2005, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with FUEL SYSTEM, GASOLINE . i was driving to work and with 3 bars of fuel showing on the fuel gauge, the gas engine stopped and i continued to a safe street to park with the electric motor (which has about a 1 mile range). i had the vehicle towed to the nearest toyota dealer. there inspection revealed multiple failure codes but that it basically ran out of gas. they reset/recalibrated the ecms and i picked up the car 2 days later. i contacted toyota about this issue and they denied any responsibility and advised that i should not run below 25% of the tanks capacity. the 2010 prius uses a rigid gas tank versus the flexible gas tank in my vehicle (i believe they know it is a problem but are doing nothing but advise people to not go below 25% fuel capacity. since the tank may be from 10 to 11.9 gallons this is not that clear). the toyota case number is 0910135219 which is already closed (denied). *tr.Mileage was 118494 miles.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2005 car safety problem was reported on July 20, 2009.TOYOTA PRIUS 2005, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING:COOLING SYSTEM . i am writing about an incident with my 2005 toyota prius. on july 20, 2009 as my wife was driving our prius the engine light went on. she immediately drove into the parking lot of a small business and stopped the car. we had it towed to a repair shop. the mechanics there diagnosed the problem. the inverter pump that supplies coolant to all the engine parts had malfunctioned. the mechanics told us that the toyota company was aware that this problem could occur on our 05 prius. if we had the car towed to a toyota dealer the defective inverter pump would be replaced with a more recent model free of charge. the next day we had the car towed to the dealership. they examined the car and verified that the problem was a defective inverter pump. their codes as printed on their invoice number 524093 [21 july 2009] are "34352 pulled code poa93, sub code 346-inverter cooling system performance. found tsb eg001-07 to correct this concern. replaced inverter water pump as per stb." this catastrophic malfunction occurred without any prior warning. we have maintained the car with regular maintenance as per the schedule in the owners manual. we were very lucky that the malfunction occurred while we were in town. since we live in new mexico the malfunction could have occurred out in one of our deserts or on one of our mountains. we are both 73 years of age and both cancer survivors. the last thing that we needed was to be stranded somewhere or to have the engine completely destroyed if we were not able to immediately stop the car. i do hope that toyota will be required to perform a recall on the prius models that have this type if inverter pump so that owners can continue to drive their cars safely. *tr.Mileage was 34352 miles.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2005 car safety problem was reported on Jan 29, 2009.TOYOTA PRIUS 2005, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with EXTERIOR LIGHTING . i have a 2005 toyota prius. the headlights will go out, sometimes both, sometimes one or the other. however, they come back on when i turn them completely off and back on. this is a safety concern for obvious reasons, and can cause my vehicle to not pass inspection. there is no specific event that makes the headlights go off. it happens intermittently and unexpectedly. adding to the safety issue...i live in the country where there often are no shoulders on the highways or county roads, and no street lights. there are lots of steep ditches and creeks. when i first started having the problem and would completely turn off the lights and then turn them back on, they would stay on for a long time, sometimes several hours before going off again. now, they stay on only a few seconds to a few minutes. i've got two theories, one is that it could be a short??? -and the other that the cooler temperatures seem to affect it slightly, though neither of these seem to make logical sense. please check into this as other prius owners have had the same unresolved problem. we can't all just go replacing the computers and light bulbs at the high cost you sell them for, especially when it doesn't fix the problem...unless toyota wants to pay for it, of course, and then that's time without transportation. thanks for your consideration on this matter. *tr.Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):JTDKB20U653.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2005 car safety problem was reported on Mar 01, 2006.TOYOTA PRIUS 2005, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL . i have a 2005 toyota prius. when it was 8 months old, probably already with more than 10,000 miles on it, it suddenly stopped on the highway when it was running. it was fixed by a toyota dealership in wellesley, ma and they said the problem was with the codes for the electronic throttle (something i knew nothing about at the time). they said however that they needed to get codes from california. i don't know if they knew at that time about an existing broader problem but didn't want to tell me, since i was a new toyota prius owner at the time. i found it puzzling that they could not fix the problem locally. lately, i've been hearing about the recall of various toyota cars so i wanted to let you know about my prius just in case: 1) sometimes, when the car is put in park, the engine suddenly revs up for no reason (i'm not pressing on the gas pedal) 2) very occasionally, i drive over a pothole and as the car is re-contacting the ground, the engine again seems to rev up. this has not resulted in an actual serious acceleration yet i don't believe that there is any problem with the floor mats or pedals. the floor mats fit nicely around the pedals. aside from the above, my toyota, which i drive a lot (it has more than 100,000 miles already) has done rather well, with minimal serious problems. i've been good about getting it serviced regularly. please feel free to contact me with questions. *tr .Mileage was 10000 miles.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2005 car safety problem was reported on Dec 31, 2009.TOYOTA PRIUS 2005, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC . sudden acceleration problem when braking in light rain; multiple occurrences * model year: 2005 * make: toyota * model: prius * component: antilock brakes before i bought my car, i went on a test drive of a prius with the salesman in the car. during the test drive, it began to rain lightly. when i approached a stop sign, i stepped on the brakes, and the car suddenly accelerated for a few seconds before slowing down and stopping. i asked the salesman next to me what that was all about. "that's the antilock brake system; isn't it great?" in fact, it was greatly terrifying. when i bought my own car, i also found that in a light rain, the car also consistently accelerates briefly before slowing down and stopping the car. this happened on many occasions, and now i do my best to avoid driving in the rain unless it is absolutely necessary. i realize that there have been many complaints about sudden acceleration lately, but this seems to be different from what is being looked at in that it only occurs (so far) on slippery roads, it only lasts a few seconds, and it occurs when i step on the brakes, not when i release the gas pedal. i've always allowed plenty of room for braking and so far have not crashed, but i'm hoping you'll find a solution besides luck to deal with this problem. *tr.Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):JTDKB20U353.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2005 car safety problem was reported on Mar 01, 2005.TOYOTA PRIUS 2005, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with TRACTION CONTROL SYSTEM . i read lots of news reports yesterday that the 2010 prius has a braking issue when run over speed bumps. my 2005 prius has a similar behavior which semi-known cause which might explain this, while being slightly dangerous in another way. when one drives a 2005 prius too fast over a speed bump, or through another situation which causes the car to think one of its wheels is slipping or spinning at a different rate than the others, the car temporarily (as i believe is in the instruction manual) flashes a briefly appearing indicator light on the front panel indicating it is slipping, and temporarily cuts back on engine power. avoiding this requires knowing the driving behavior of the prius, and i wonder if this is the behavior certain 2010 prius owners may be noting. {if one is looking at the road and scared by the sudden drop in engine power, one may never look down at the dash to see the indicator flash for 1-2 seconds either.} normally this is might seem like reasonable, but this becomes potentially extremely hazardous should one try to make a sharp right turn onto a higher-speed main road (40 mph+) from a dead stop on a side road with a high rate of acceleration to attempt merge into high-volume, fast-moving traffic. in such cases (especially if water is present, but even if the road is dry), i have had the anti-skid feature kick in and cut back on engine power for a half-second or so, which risks stalling the car temporarily in front of an oncoming vehicle. as a result, i try not to do any maneuvers like this, even though other cars often can "burn rubber" a bit and do this. nothing has been done to attempt to correct the issue, as it is presumed to be normal behavior for the car, and i never had a car with anti-skid abilities before. seeing this was common for me at first, but is now somewhat rare (less than once/month) due to changing my driving habits.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2005 car safety problem was reported on Dec 15, 2009.TOYOTA PRIUS 2005, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with FUEL SYSTEM, GASOLINE . about 2 years ago, on route 840 in utica, i floored the gas pedal on my 2005 toyota prius to pass a car. the prius does not have a lot of power, so flooring it was sometimes necessary to pass uphill. when i took my foot off the gas pedal, the car was still accelerating. i touched the brakes. nothing. finally, i pushed down hard on the brakes and got the car to the side of the road and turned it off. i have rubber mats. i thought one of them had gone under the pedal. "case solved" so i thought. last december, again passing a truck uphill on route 840, i floored the pruis gas pedal. the same thing happened! this time i knew it was not the mat because i had drilled holes in it and attached it to the mat posts. it was inches away from the gas pedal when this happened. i pushed the brakes down hard and struggled the car to the side of the road right before the lanes merged and the truck would have cut me off (into a swamp). the brakes, with a burning smell, fought the racing car. i finally got it turned off. when i turned it back on, the gas was still racing! i turned it off again. after waiting,it started normally. it has done it every time the pedal was floored(seldom). i went to the internet and found this had been a problem and toyota was planning a prius recall, with parts to repair available in april. i was very scared to drive the car, but can't afford to sell it (wrong) or buy another. so i decided to wait for the recall. i have been driving on pins and needles since. and now there is no recall for the prius gas pedal! i'm glad for the brake recall because my prius has done that once too, but freaked out about no sticking gas pedal recall for the prius. i went to the dealer today for 115,000k service and told them about this. "technician can not replicate problem". just like so many stories from other toyota owners on the web. this will be many a prius driver's epitaph without government action. please make toyota fix these sticking prius accelerators *cn.Mileage was 112000 miles.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2005 car safety problem was reported on Jan 29, 2010.TOYOTA PRIUS 2005, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC . i am writing to express my concern over a one car accident in which i was the driver. this accident occured on a snow covered road while on my way to work. i was driving a 2005 toyota prius. this is the same explanation i gave to the police and to the insurance company. i was driving somewhere around 40mph when i applied the break. when i did this i did not stamp on it harshly rather in a normal break application. immediately my car slammed across the road very very fast, and it rolled over on its side. my seatbelt held me firmly in place but i was tilted with my head down by the passanger seat and my legs upwards to toward the top of the steering wheel. i remained in that position for about 20 or 25 min.unable to move until the emergency squad arrived. i was transported to the hospital in the ambulance. my car was declared to be totalled. my concern is that the insurance company keeps saying that the car is not on a recall list but my acciident experience is curiously similar to what they are saying is the problem with the 2010 toyota hybrids.. i think they should be investigating all possible vehicle issues. how can i persue this? do you have any recommendations? *cn.Vehicle was involved in a crash.

(my car was equipped with aggressive snow tires at the time.) ever since then, if i'm coming home from work in the snow, i leave my car in the shopping center at the bottom of the hill and call my husband, who picks me up with his ford bronco. # 2: anti-lock braking. the 2010 prius's aren't the only ones with problems; mine does the same thing. if i'm braking on a bumpy stretch of road or over a manhole cover in the rain, the car will cut power to the brakes, causing the car to feel like it's surging forward. again this problem is much worse in the snow. going downhill on a snowy, slippery hill the anti-lock brakes repeatedly cut braking power, which actually causes the car to accelerate to unsafe speeds. my dealer tells me that this is how the car works, and nothing can be dome to correct it. *tr.Mileage was 1000 miles.

(my car was equipped with aggressive snow tires at the time.) ever since then, if i'm coming home from work in the snow, i leave my car in the shopping center at the bottom of the hill and call my husband, who picks me up with his ford bronco. # 2: anti-lock braking. the 2010 prius's aren't the only ones with problems; mine does the same thing. if i'm braking on a bumpy stretch of road or over a manhole cover in the rain, the car will cut power to the brakes, causing the car to feel like it's surging forward. again this problem is much worse in the snow. going downhill on a snowy, slippery hill the anti-lock brakes repeatedly cut braking power, which actually causes the car to accelerate to unsafe speeds. my dealer tells me that this is how the car works, and nothing can be dome to correct it. *tr.Mileage was 1000 miles. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):JTDKB20U557. Toyota Prius 2005 problem was reported in HELLERTOWN, PA. Vehicle was not using ANTI-LOCK BRAKES. Vehicle was not using Cruise Control.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2005 car safety problem was reported on Feb 03, 2010.TOYOTA PRIUS 2005, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with TRACTION CONTROL SYSTEM . my wife and i recently bought a used 2005 prius from wilde toyota in west allis, wi. in the last few months we have experienced braking issues with the vehicle on icy roads, slick roads, and snow covered roads. we have had three brake failures. the first was when i was driving on a side-street. i was going slow, less then 15 miles per hour, and stepped on the brakes to make a turn. the brakes were unresponsive for aprox. 2 seconds causing me to roll before the brakes engage. the second occured when my wife was driving at a low speed, under 40 miles an hour, on a main road. as she approached the stoplight she stepped on the brakes, which also failed to engage. due to her higher speed she rolled over 10 feet and came close to hitting the car stopped in front of her before the brakes finally engaged. the final occurance also occured when my wife was driving, this time at a higher speed between 40 and 50 miles per hour, when pressing on the brakes on an overpass the brakes failed to engage and the car physically seemed to shake a bit. after being unable to stop for several feet the brakes finally engaged. we believe these occurances are due to an error with our abs system. in each occurance the "slippery road" warning has appeared. we took it to wilde tayota this morning. after software testing as well as road testing on their snow covered lot they failed to replicate the problem. no system errors were present and they were unable to take any further action. we are, however, still convinced that a problem exists. if it occurs again we will once again take it to the dealership and try to replicate the problem. *tr.Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):JTDKB20U253.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2005 car safety problem was reported on May 05, 2007.TOYOTA PRIUS 2005, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL . i love my prius but a different story here, i think. i bought a new 2005 toyota prius. when it was approximately 2 years old with approximately 40 thousand miles on it (3 years ago) the gas pedal stuck and it was not related to a floor mat. i was accelerating getting up to the 55mph speed limit while also climbing a hill going out of town into the mountains. when i crested the hill and let up off the gas it just kept going. it was quite lucky that it happened on a straightaway just before the mountain curves and drop offs. as a lifelong professional driver with experience operating just about anything my first learned reaction was to dig my heels in and pull the floor mat back, it's happened to me in other vehicles. i glanced down and there were no obstructions at the pedal. my severely disabled son was with me. automatically, i started kicking the gas pedal. after several kicks it slowed. no problem since. never reported the incident. just figured a weird glitch. had not tried brakes yet, nor neutral, it's a different kind of car, a bit scared to try to turn it off while going down the road. i had already spotted a decent place to ditch the car with minimal damage. i had reached 75 to 80 mph when kicking the pedal stopped it. it's a computer thing. *tr.Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):JTDKB22U657.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2005 car safety problem was reported on Jan 20, 2005.TOYOTA PRIUS 2005, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC . please note this is my second complaint about my prius's brakes, but it is not a duplicate complaint. my car has two problems with it's brakes which seem to me to be unrelated. my prius brakes very oddly when driving in the rain, or in the early morning when there is appreciable dew/condensation. when gently depressing the brake pedal at a constant pressure, the car decelerates slowly, then abruptly transitions to very rapid deceleration, as though i had slammed the brake pedal down hard. it is very difficult to modulate the braking. this happens several times, then seems to ease up as the vehicle is operated for around 15 minutes. on several occasions i have reported this to the toyota dealership. they have sometimes dismissed the complaint out of hand, and once attempted in vain to replicate the defect, unsuccessfully. in any event, i have always been told my brakes were operating normally. please note that this is not the same problem as the brake failure which occurs when braking while riding over a rough or uneven surface, which my vehicle also does. at least, i assume the two problems are unrelated. i have filed a separate complaint form for that problem. *tr.Mileage was 100 miles.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2005 car safety problem was reported on Oct 03, 2007.TOYOTA PRIUS 2005, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL . when i was pulling slowly into my regular parking space at work, my 2005 prius suddenly surged forward and smashed into a cement wall that was about 4 - 6 feet in front of me. there were cars parked on each side of me; i didn't hit either of them. i went straight into the wall at the font of the parking space. no water or ice or bad conditions were present. the surge was much faster than would have occurred had i mistakenly hit the accelerator rather than the brake. over $3300 worth of damage was done to the front of my car. my ankle bone was chipped, my wrist was sore, i had minor whiplash. i was alone in the car. i feel strongly that this was not a result of driver error on my part, nor do i think it is a result of the floor mat catching the accelerator. what i experienced matches much more closely with descriptions of a fluke computer error causing the car to surge forward when i touched the brakes. it was a strong, fast and sudden surge; much more powerful than what i experience when i use the accelerator. i reported the incident to toyota (reference #200710181201). they sent someone out from the chicago regional office to inspect the car in minneapolis. they claimed everything was working fine and refused to do more. after i explained the situation and my fear about driving my car, the local walser toyota dealer did another very thorough check and reset all of the electronic components. it has worked fine since. prior to this 2007 incident there were a couple of other times when the car seemed to surge rather than brake at stop signs. none caused crashes. and once, also prior to 2007, the antilock brakes did not deploy when they should have. i narrowly avoided a crash that time. *tr.Vehicle was involved in a crash. 1 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 30699 miles.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2005 car safety problem was reported on Sept 03, 2004.TOYOTA PRIUS 2005, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with POWER TRAIN:AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION . i have an unresolved safety issue with my 2005 toyota prius. this happened to me on the first day that i drove my then-brand new car. i still remember this dangerous event very clearly. i can easily replicate the problem for you. i was about to back my prius out of its diagonal parking space on a busy main street in downtown el cajon, ca. it was daytime. vehicles were parked on either side of me, which prevented me from seeing whether or not there was traffic approaching. i carefully backed out of the parking space until i could see whether or not there was traffic approaching. i saw that there was and it was approaching quickly, so with the intention of stopping my cars backwards movement and, instead, going forward into my parking space, i hit the brakes and quickly moved the gearshift lever over to the left and fully down into the drive gate to the stop position, before i released the spring-loaded shift lever (which sends it back to its 'home' position). i then quickly pressed the gas pedal, intending for the car to move forward so that i could drive back into my parking space. to my shock, my car jumped further backwards into the traffic lane, instead of forwards into my parking space. having good reflexes, and in somewhat of a panic now, i once again shoved the gearshift lever fully into the drive gate and fully down until it contacted the stop, before letting go of it. once again i punched the accelerator pedal and once again the car jumped -- backwards! i fully applied the brakes and hoped that the oncoming vehicles would not hit me. fortunately, they did not. the problem is that if the gearshift lever on the 2005 prius is moved too quickly, there will be no gear change. this could be corrected if the gear selector remained in the appropriate gear's gate, giving the electronics time to make the shift. this flaw could cause accidents and be falsely attributed to driver error. in the interests of safety, it should be fixed. *tr.Mileage was 100 miles.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2005 car safety problem was reported on Oct 15, 2009.TOYOTA PRIUS 2005, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC . i was traveling down a residential street and approaching a pedestrian intersection when a pedestrian on her morning exercise run suddenly ran across my path. i immediately tried to stop, but the edge of the sole of my dress shoes were caught behind the brake pedal, and i was unable to move my foot onto the pedal to depress it. only by steering away from the pedestrian, and her action to stop, did i avoid a serious accident. the cause of this incident is the fact that the accelerator and brake pedals are displaced by several inches, that is, the brake pedal is closer to the driver than what the accelerator is. this requires one to lift your foot by 6 inches or so before moving it over to the brake pedal to depress it. in an emergency situation your reflexive reaction is to try to move your foot over as quickly as possible. however, the displacement of the brake pedal creates an obstacle than, in the best case, results in a delay, and in the worst case results in an inability to operate the brake pedal in time to avoid an accident. *tr.Mileage was 61000 miles.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2005 car safety problem was reported on Mar 03, 2010.TOYOTA PRIUS 2005, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL . last evening 3/3 my 2005 toyota prius experienced a stuck gas pedal causing me to go in and out a ditch then across the road and hit a sign prior to my finally being able to get it into neutral. since neither toyota total care/roadside assistance or the toyota of bowie dealership would tow it to the dealership i placed a claim with my insurance company usaa. when i got to the dealership they were extremely unhelpful saying i had to make a complaint with toyota as they were not toyota but an independent dealership. they did not want to look at it since it looked fine on one side but they didn't even want to hear about the under carriage. the car is there waiting for my insurance adjuster to look at it. they also advised that i needed to complain to nhtsa.gov since there's nothing wrong -- without even looking at it they said this. i just had the car in the 90k and then for electronics problem since over 7 times if you drove the car then shut it off then try to restart it 5 minutes later all the lights would come on but you couldn't start the engine or do anything until the electronics unfroze. they said it was the battery and the remote but i disagree since they said to make sure everything is off before you turn it off. i ask why and they just said that?s how toyota says to do it. today one of the first things they asked was if the defroster was on or other electronics. as you can imagine i am extremely upset!!! to ask me to drive it to see it does it again was an extremely inappropriate response to my situation. *tr .Vehicle was involved in a crash.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2005 car safety problem was reported on Jan 15, 2010.TOYOTA PRIUS 2005, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL . i previously reported this problem under odi # 10304339. i incorrectly reported that "i felt a big thump like i was hit from behind". however, i now believe that this activity could have been caused by "the sudden acceleration" that has been frequently mentioned by the media. although what i felt seemed like a hit from behind, it could have been a short acceleration burst lasting only a couple of seconds. there have not been any further incidences of this nature. *tr.Mileage was 50000 miles.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2005 car safety problem was reported on Mar 04, 2010.TOYOTA PRIUS 2005, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with EXTERIOR LIGHTING . i'm constantly replacing the headlights in my 2005 toyota prius (non-hid bulbs) as they have stopped working 6 times in the last 35k miles. i've replaced them with different manufacturer's bulbs, differing models, and even oem bulbs, but they keep going out. the first time they actually went out with both headlights together at exactly 100,000 miles. i don't know if this is planned obsolence or something else, but both headlights going out while driving at night is far from safe. given the fact that the dealership wants almost $300 per bulb change, this is getting pretty ridiculous, and i'm not thrilled about the concept of getting tickets due to bulbs burning out every couple of weeks. aside from the inconvenience and cost, i'm really concerned about the safety aspects of this recurring problem. *tr.Mileage was 132000 miles.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2005 car safety problem was reported on Mar 10, 2010.TOYOTA PRIUS 2005, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with SERVICE BRAKES, HYDRAULIC . i have been routinely bringing my 2005 prius to a toyota dealership every 5k miles according to manufacturers suggested maintenance schedule and never had a problem reported to me. (one time the software needed to be reloaded.) on the evening of the incident that i am reporting, i had traveled on the mass turnpike and rte 495 (~38 mi) home from work (~9:30 pm) and successfully slowed and stopped my 2005 toyota prius as needed. as i got into on local roads, i suddenly lost my braking ability. fortunately i was going slowly and was able to roll to a stop. there was a really shrill alarm and a red light showing abs (antilock brake problem)--i'll say. i tested to see if there was any braking power so that i could get the car home. if you pressed the brake to the floor--there was some residual slowing--so i crept home. aaa towed my car to toyota the next day and toyota ultimately identified the problem as a computer problem. they replaced the 1 89540-47130 computer assembly, skid. aside from the cost ($2250), its the possibility that i could have lost my brakes on either of the two highways that i take on the way home, exit ramps, toll booths, and that i or some others could have been seriously hurt, really upsets me. and how do i know that this will not fail again? regular service does not check computer status. i think that you should look into computer problems with toyota and also what toyota includes in regular service. they say that they haven't seen this before, and that may be true: i have a 5 yr old prius with more than 110k miles on it and i'll bet that is a lot of mileage for a prius. as more people drive prius's for longer times and accrue higher mileage, i would bet that toyota will see a lot more of these incidents. i think that you should be proactive and deal with this before people get hurt. *tr.Mileage was 112876 miles.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2005 car safety problem was reported on Mar 01, 2010.TOYOTA PRIUS 2005, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL . having just started the car and enroute to my destination, i was on a city street following a large landscape truck traveling approximately 20-25mph.. road conditions were dry. although the truck's brake lights were not on, i perceived the truck was gradually slowing. in anticipation of making a stop, i moved my foot from the accelerator to the brake pedal. when the truck's driver applied his brakes, i also applied my brakes intending to come to a gentle stop by lightly pressing the brake pedal. without warning the brake pedal 'softened' and my prius continued to coast with no braking at all. since the truck's size and width obscured sight of any on-coming traffic, i couldn't turn out of my lane and as a result rear- ended the truck. since there was no damage to the truck or injuries, a police report was not filed; however, i immediately called my insurance agent and was authorized to drive to an approved body shop. after the repairs were completed, i scheduled an appointment on march 19th 2010 with my toyota dealer to check my car's braking system. the brake pads/shoes, braking fluid were found to be fine, but no analysis of the computer braking system was discussed. according to the toyota service adviser, the braking failure couldn't be duplicated and their mechanic found nothing mechanical that might have caused the problem. i am dissatisfied with toyota's service adviser's dismissive position regarding my brake's failure. despite their inability to diagnose the problem, the service adviser insists the car is safe to drive, but offers no evidence to support this claim. in the past i've complained to toyota service about the intermittent 'floaty' feeling i experience when depressing the brake in stop and go traffic. no extensive diagnosis of the braking system was ever offered to me, and indeed, the brakes finally failed. since no one at my local toyota dealer is willing to resolve this issue satisfactorily, i find it necessary to file a formal complaint.Vehicle was involved in a crash.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2005 car safety problem was reported on June 18, 2010.TOYOTA PRIUS 2005, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with EXTERIOR LIGHTING . the headlights on my 2005 toyota prius go out intermittently without warning, one at a time. the bulbs will come back on after the first or second time of restarting the car. this may be happening more often than i'm aware. the first time was about 7 months ago when a chp officer pulled me over and gave me a fixit ticket for the headlight being out. it was too late at night to buy another bulb anywhere. i pulled into a lighted parking lot to see if there might be a loose connection. i turned off the car, opened the hood, removed some parts that were in the way of accessing the back of the passenger side headlight, and jiggled the connection to the bulb. i turned the car back on and the light worked. the next time i was at a service appointment at the dealer i asked them if they were aware of any problems with the headlights going out intermittently. the service rep said they do that occasionally, but since they were expensive to repair, to just keep driving until it goes out altogether. about 3 or 4 months ago, my driver side headlight did the same thing that time, i wasn't able to remove the back of the headlight. i was in a remote location late at night about 50 miles along a winding 2-lane road away from my destination. i started the car back up and the driver side headlight was still out. i decided to continue on to my destination with just one headlight, taking a chance the other wouldn't go out. the next day when i started the car, both headlights were working fine. last night, the passenger side headlight went out for the second time (that i'm aware). i was on a 3-hour drive home after working out of town all week. i stopped for some coffee and when i turned the car back on, both headlights were working fine. after about 10 minutes driving, though, the passenger side headlight went out again and stayed out all the rest of the trip home. today i googled the problem; several others have had similar problems with prius headlights. *tr.Mileage was 83800 miles.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2005 car safety problem was reported on Dec 10, 2009.TOYOTA PRIUS 2005, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with POWER TRAIN:DRIVELINE . while driving in a snowstorm in my 2005 prius, i stopped at a red light on a busy street, the roads starting to become slippery with snow. as the light changed to green, i stepped on the gas, and the"slippery" light came on my dashboard. when this happens, the front wheels will not spin at all. i could not move the car at all, since the computer determined i was on a "slippery" spot. i saw cars and trucks barreling toward me in my rear view mirror, unable to move, and visibility greatly reduced, due to the falling snow. i put my blinkers on, and thankfully on coming traffic was able to avoid me. i was stuck at this intersection for four light changes, slightly panicked. i finally put the car into reverse, and got just enough movement out of the car to find a dry patch and get me moving again. when i reported this to both toyota, and my local dealer, they told me this is a "safety" feature. it's a safety feature that will surely get someone killed. the front wheels simply will not spin in the least if the car determines it is slippery, which left me no where to go at that intersection. i later googled the problem, and found that this is a very common problem with prius owners. a few people left the comment that snow tires are necessary to avoid this problem. not knowing what else to do, i went out and bought 4 new snowtires. it did make a huge difference, but i'm afraid that for someone else, they may find out too late. this safety feature is an unacceptable death trap waiting to happen. *tr.Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):JTDKB20UX53.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2005 car safety problem was reported on July 16, 2010.TOYOTA PRIUS 2005, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with ELECTRICAL SYSTEM . at around 10pm this friday night i was driving home on the country road 3 miles from my house. it is a 2 lane road with no street lamps. i was traveling at 50mph and coming around a gentle curve when all of a sudden every light in the car went out...headlights, taillights, dashboard, hazards, even the navigation system display. a month ago i had my car in for its safety inspection and 150k mileage service and was told the car was "fine" but i've had intermittent issues with the hid lamp on the driver side going out. when this happens if i cycle the light switch off then back on again it fixes the issue. when all my lights went out on friday, i was only able to avoid driving off the road and getting in an accident because it was a road i am very familiar with and knew where the turn was coming up. i was able to slow my car to a stop. after sitting in the dark a minute (the engine was still running just fine) i was worried a car might come down the road behind me and not see me and hit me. i then decided to try cycling the light switch off and on because that had worked for the headlamp issue. i cycled it once but the lights remained off, but after the second time i cycled the light switch all the lights in the car came back on and i was able to drive home. i took the car to toyota of warrenton and told them what happened. they "ran a diagnostic" and checked the vehicle but said they couldn't duplicate the issue and then sent me home. i am now afraid to drive my car at night in case this happens again. *tr.Mileage was 147000 miles.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2005 car safety problem was reported on July 08, 2010.TOYOTA PRIUS 2005, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with ENGINE AND ENGINE COOLING:COOLING SYSTEM . i'm writing about an defective inverter cooling pump in my 2005 toyota prius. i was driving when all of a sudden my car loses the ability to accelerate. numerous warning lights came on as i coasted to a stop in a nearby neighborhood. the car would not shut off at first. after i finally got the car to turn off, it would not turn on again. the display in the center of the dashboard would come on fine, but when it came time for the main engine to turn on (when pushing the start button), it would blink and shut off immediately. when i took a look under the hood, i could smell something electrical burning. i finally got the car towed to a local shop that was toyota/lexus certified. they figured out that the inverter cooling pump was defective and it was blowing fuses (hence the smell of something electrical burning). total cost was almost $500 for the repair: parts and labor. i tried calling toyota to see if i could get any type of reimbursement, but i got many reasons why i should not get one: - the warranty was for 60,000 or 8 years. i was in the 8 years, the mileage was 62,000. (i guess customer service does not mean much - previously i own a 94 toyota corolla - 16 years with a toyota car) - i did not get it repaired at a toyota "dealership" (even though they were "toyota" certified) - i did not buy the car new. (so if you buy a used toyota, apparently that does not make the car a toyota anymore.) bottom line, after being fixed the car runs even better then before the inverter cooling pump failure: better gas mileage and no more phantom steering wheel movements when driving on the highway (happened when the engine would switch over to battery and vice versa). *tr.Mileage was 62100 miles. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):JTDKB20U053. Toyota Prius 2005 problem was reported in APOLLO BEACH, FL. Vehicle was not using ANTI-LOCK BRAKES. Vehicle was not using Cruise Control.

Toyota Prius 2005 Exterior Lighting Review #10367163

TOYOTA PRIUS 2005 car safety problem was reported on Oct 13, 2010.TOYOTA PRIUS 2005, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with EXTERIOR LIGHTING . toyota prius headlights- the replacement cost for one bulb is ridiculously high- about $199 plus labor ($110). the new lightbulb overheats after two minutes and turns off. if i turn the lights on and off again the bulb will come back on--for two minutes at a time. this is incredibly dangerous. i hear a new bulb is coming out to remedy the problem, but since mine was "used" i cannot return it for an exchange when the new bulbs come in. because it is halogen, they will only guarantee the bulb if they install it. it's a monopoly. we are stuck paying their high prices for the bulb-- and are required to go to the dealership to change a simple headlight. (although i dare not mention the installation process, which is anything but simple-- including removing the bumper!) *tr.Mileage was 55127 miles. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):JTDKB20U653.

TOYOTA PRIUS 2005 car safety problem was reported on Nov 21, 2010.TOYOTA PRIUS 2005, manufactured by TOYOTA MOTOR CORPORATION had a problem with ELECTRONIC STABILITY CONTROL . we have noticed repeatedly (a dozen or more times) over three years of owning this car and 100k miles, that as we brake going over a bumpy section of road, the braking system fails and the car actually accelerates for one or two seconds. this is especially alarming when we need to brake suddenly in a curve on a bumpy road as it seems we will lose control of the car. i always brake with my right foot and my right foot remains off the accelerator and on the brake throughout these episodes. our car is equipped with the vehicle stability system and the passenger notices that the stability system warning light comes on during these episodes. it is not simply that the car coasts when the braking fails, the engine actually sounds like it is revving up and the car noticeably speeds up. once the bumpy section has been passed, normal braking resumes. this has nothing to do with the floor mat. this situation should be reproducible thru testing..0 person(s) were injured. 0 person(s) died.Mileage was 50000 miles. Vehicle Identification Number (VIN):JTDKB20U857. Toyota Prius 2005 problem was reported in CARY, NC. Vehicle was not using Cruise Control. VEHICLE SPEED: 45 mph.
