Suddenly Prius' have started accelerating on their own? There have been two or three recent news stories about this problem but how did this start happening to everyone at the same time? Maybe Toyota has a timer, after a certain number of miles, the cars just start failing - the same people who conspired to kill General Motors' EV-1 are likely behind it.
A stealth group of industrial/eco-terrorists has been plotting to keep us free from cancer causing electromagnetic fields and polluted water from improperly dumped lead acide batteries. And now they've turned their ire toward the popular Prius. What else could it be? A little driver error combined with extra scrutiny from ratings hungry local news stations - no, that's too easy. It's clearly a stealth group of industrial/eco-terrorists.
