Somehow, I have a hard time believing a Prius will get to 90+mph....no matter how far the pedal is stuck down (or more likely, the ECU is OTL)...

I have one and it will get to 90 MPH. Didn't Al Gore's kid get pulled over a couple years back for doing 103 in his Prius?

Throttle jammed on?..... On a prius?........ Pardon my ignorance, but.... Isn't that the same as leaving the park brake on?

Sorry guy's, mamma say's we ain't going nowhere!

Several F-bombs? Several dozen - but that's not my point. He's showing you a properly operating Prius. When (if?) the software misbehaves, will it let you shift to neutral or turn it off? Haven't you had a PC go so stupid you had to reach in the back and kill the main power switch because the soft switch on the front doesn't do anything? The Prius power switch is a soft switch, not the 'Main' switch - because there isn't one. The 'throttle linkage' is software. The 'gear shift' is software. Even the brakes have a software override called ABS. When it detects wheel slip, it turns off the brakes for a half secind and flashes a light on the dash which should really say 'good luck'. There is PLENTY of stuff to be suspicious about. How well is the watchdog implemented? IS there a watchdog ? - though I can't believe there isn't. Are there federal standards for this? Who wrote the regs? Lawyers? Or do we just trust manufacturers?

More xenophobia. Pretty harsh coming from the country that gave us the Pinto, Gremlin, Corvair and various other safety icons...

Stuff some more floormats in there guys - keep your feet cosy.
