    Which it obviously was, most likely on the part of either the mother or the fourteen year old who jumped in to stop the vehicle. Reports don't say who was driving, but the SUV was left running and in gear. SMH :eek:o_O:rolleyes: Reckless endangerment.

    Yup.
    Article states it was a NORMAL S.U.V. that the driver had stepped out of. Thus it was driverless.
    Ford had a problem with its vehicle park indicators in S.U.V.' S.
    Ford also has an exhaust leak problem which has knocked out a few drivers while driving. In a S U V. Popular with the Police.

    No indication of what year the vehicle is, but it probably wouldn't have jumped the curb and driven forward into the store if the engine had been shut down and the parking brake set.
    I'm on my third Prius and haven't experienced any problems with the electronic shifters. Has there been a change in the newest models? Mine is a 2012.

    No its stayed the same. Its a b shifter much different what the slideing shifters have. When i used prius i had issues of putting it in park. Its electric it no longer goes straight to transmission. U have to click it over and one time i thought i "clicked it" over i opened up door the car started rolling. So i had to press button to shut it off completely. It was just easy with the normal shifters
