I can’t stop my Prius video:
I fell in love with the SNL bash of the Prius after the incident in California where a Gen 2 Prius sped up to 90 mph and could not stop, until the police cruiser slowed it down. here is the video – SNL Weekend Retreat:
What is www.ICANTSTOP.net and why?
What inspired me to create this Toyota Prius fan site where I and other Prius owners would be able to share our problems AND also things we do like about the Prius, is the fact that after I went to my dealership and did the brakes software update “recall”, my Gen 3 Prius still won’t really stop when I’m braking and drive over the man-hole.
I CAN’T STOP.net is not a site that bashes the Prius
I actually love my Prius, except for a few small things, and really do not take the brakes situation too seriously. It is dangerous if you can’t drive, so what I do is slow down in advance – not the last second as most drivers do.
However, a couple of times, on a slippery road, my car drove over a man-hole cover and the ABS / brakes completely shut down, and it felt like the car “jumped” 5-6 feet forward, before the brakes kicked back in. And this happened AFTER the recall repairs were performed by Toyota dealership in Boston. I won’t name the dealership as it’s not the mechanic’s fault – I believe Toyota’s “software update” is a scam to save millions of dollars on real repairs.
