More Acceleration Problems for Toyota Toyota is investigating the Prius again after an incident yesterday on Interstate 8 near San Diego. Sixty-one year-old James Sikes says, when he started to pass another car, his accelerator stuck and he couldn't stop his Prius from speeding faster and faster. He called 911, and the California Highway Patrol sent a car that gave him instructions on its loudspeaker. The Wall Street Journal has reported that Toyota is investigating Sikes' car and is planning a recall. Toyota is facing lawsuits for deaths and injuries and at least 89 class-action cases from owners who say their cars have lost value because of safety recalls, according to the Associated Press.
