2005 FORD TAURUS CONTINUED TO ACCELERATE AFTER TAKING FOOT OFF GAS TO BEGIN TO BRAKE AS TRAFFIC STARTED TO SLOW. I BEGAN TO APPLY FULL PRESSURE TO THE BRAKE TO SLOW THE VEHICLE, BUT THE CAR WAS STILL TRYING TO ACCELERATE. I WAS ABLE TO GET THE CAR TO STOP IN TRAFFIC AND I PARKED THE CAR, TURNED IT OFF AND RESTARTED IT. AFTER THIS THE ACCELERATION WAS NORMAL. HOWEVER, MY WIFE AND I HAVE HAD THIS SAME PROBLEM ON NUMEROUS OCCASIONS AND HAD ONCE HAD FORD CHECK THE VEHICLE, BUT THEY STATED THAT THEY FOUND NOTHING WRONG IT. I HAVE NOTICED THAT IF I TAP THE GAS PEDAL DURING ACCELERATION, THE CAR MIGHT STOP SURGING AND A LOUD POP CAN BE HEARD. THE MOST RECENT OCCURRENCE WAS 3/12/12.
