    Ok...

    First off... How is a Prius remotely the same as a current gen Tacoma?

    Second. We are all watching what is happening with Toyota, the recalls and the issue of "unintended acceleration".

    Please stop posting redundant information, look in "General Automotive" for posts of the nature or search first.

    For the record....

    I've had the privilege of driving a Prius. Had it on loan from the stealership. Not a bad car for pep and get up and go, amazed the shit out of me. With that... The controls are all electronic, shifting is not a solid connection to the transmission and the "ignition" is a start/stop switch.

    Here is the shifter.

    And the ignition switch

    The E-Brake I do not recall.

    ^ That is what happens when people get too lazy to turn their own keys. Now they have cars that drive for themselves, be it driver willing or not.

    someone's comment on that page:

    Many years ago Audi in US had sudden acceleration problems, but Audi in Europe had never had such incidents. Now Prius in US have sudden acceleration problems, and in Europe we had not witness any of such incidents. So the question is: are cars made for US market significantly different from the one made for European market? if not then the problem is to be found somewhere else
