Product type codeVEHICLE
 Description of the problemIt sometimes will not shift into normal reverse. On these occasions, when you shift into reverse ,it will not move or creep slowly back as it normally does. It feels like a brake is on and you must push hard on the gas to get the car to back up at all. The car then lunges backward until you take your foot off the gas and it will jerk to a stop without you even touching the brakes. This is scary when you are in a parking space at a retail store,restaurant ,etc. And have someone parked on both sides of you. You cant back up slowly,only can lurch out of your parking spot and hope no pedestrians or vehicles are coming by. I finally got the car to do this at the dealer lot in des moines,by driving and parking for 48 minutes. Now the dealer saw the problem dealer tech backed the car up for a block with one foot on the gas and one on the brake, as i told him if he drove forward for 50 feet it would snap out of the problem and we would be trying to recreate it again. No probs show on scope tests toyota has no idea what it is. Bought the car 03/24/2012 dealer has had it to look at over 18 days already in and out. My wife is terrified to drive it as this happened to her in the parking lot at work.. *js
