 Description of the problemI have a toyota camry se 2012 (4-cyl) which i bought on 08/29/2012. On 12/31/2012 (the road was clear and dry, it was a cloudy day, no rain, snow, ice on the road) while starting to accelerate from a stop light, turning into a lane, after i stopped pressing the gas pedal, the car kept getting faster and faster (the gas pedal didn't get stuck and my foot wasn't on it), when i started to turn into a lane, the driver's side wheel locked up and to avoid a crash i had to turn the wheel to the other side, i ended up doing a diagonal skid into the other lane, i was able to get the car to stop and straighten it out and keep going. Since the driver's side wheel locked up the car jerked me pretty hard and my neck and arm started to hurt since then and i am scheduled to take physical therapy. I took it to the dealer i bought it from for service (from 1/2/2013 - 1/10/2013) and after i picked it up i've been having the rpm sticking at 1. 3 all the time so now it's worse than when i had it last. The car doesn't feel safe to drive and i don't want to put my life or other people's lives at risk. After calling toyota and explaining all of this they told me to go to the dealer and the dealer says that toyota is the one that can do whatever they want, the dealer's only resolution is to accept the car as a trade in and roll over the residual value into a loan for another car, but it isn't my fault so i shouldn't have to pay more in payments for a car and i shouldn't have to be paying for a car that's not safe for me or my family to drive. Before the incident on 12/31/2012 i had taken it in to the dealer for the same reason, but i thought it was that the tires weren't gripping on dry asphalt, the dealer topped off the air and said it was fine, but the car kept doing the same thing and i didn't realize it was accelerating on it's own until what happened on 12/31/2012.
