I WAS DRIVING TO WORK AND I TURNED ON MY CRUISE CONTROL, I HAD TO BARELY BRAKE FOR A CAUTION WHEN A CAR WAS COMING IN MY LANE, ONCE I WENT AROUND THEM...I LEFT THE CRUISE CONTROL OFF....BUT THE CAR SPED UP ON ITS OWN...APPROXIMATELY 65-70 MILES AN HOUR. MY BRAKES WERE WORKING JUST FINE. I CALLED MY DAD TO SEE WHAT HE WANTED ME TO DO....I DROVE ON TO WORK (APPROX 20 MORE MILES) AND DIDN'T HAVE MY FOOT ON THE GAS PEDAL THE WHOLE TIME....THE CRUISE WAS OFF...THE PEDAL WAS STUCK AND THE CAR CONTINUED GOING 60 MILES PER HOUR....ONCE I CAME TO MY EXIT, I TOOK IT OUT OF 5TH GEAR (MANUAL TRANSMISSION) AND THE CAR REVVED UP HORRIBLY...I PULLED INTO WORK AND SHUT IT OFF. RESTARTED IT AND IT WAS DOING THE SAME THING. THESE CARS NEED RECALLED!!!!
