I have a 2013 Prius V - which self starts .. It has done so at least 4 times - the last self start occurred a few weeks ago while in the garage ... the car just self started ( again ) - I reached in and hit the power button which shut it off . The Key Fob was upstairs in my Apartment - The dealer has already checked it out -- and could find nothing wrong . Anyone else having this rather odd problem ? Ken

Are you absolutely sure you did not leave the car on when you left it. It is easy to do. I know! It will stay on when you walk away with the key fob. The ICE would then start at some point. This is a danger, especially if it is an attached garage.

YES VERY SURE ..-- car started itself about 1 to 1.5 hrs after being shut down .. I just happened to be in the garage .
I always shut down the engine and place the car in park when pulling into the garage ... The key fob was upstairs in my Apartment ..... Ken
