    Nothing yet, brand new!
    Wozniak needs to lay off the cheeseburgers. He probably had a Big Mac lodged under his pedal. These isolated incidents are going to pop up on just about every model for months to come. In his case it's the cruise control going crazy.
    Hell, a Prius accelerating is something to cheer about. :laugh:

    I think that a software glitch is completely feasible. The 09-10 transmission lag was fixed with a reflash of the ECM=software glitch.
