MY CAR ACCELERATED STARTING AT 30 MPH AND KEPT CLIMBING. I GOT IT STOPPED WITH MUCH EFFORT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE ROAD. WHEN I RESTARTED IT, THE ENGINE RACED UNCONTROLLABLY. IT WAS CHECKED BY MY BOYFRIEND (A AUTO SERVICE MANAGER FOR 20 YEARS) AND FOUND THE CRUISE CABLE WAS LOOSE BUT HOLDING THE ACCELERATOR. HE DISCONNECTED THE CABLE TO THE SIDE AND DROVE IT OK. THEN THE CABLE SLIDE BACK INTO PLACE AND IT DID IT AGAIN. IT YOU CHECK THE CHAT ROOMS YOU WILL FIND THAT MANY PEOPLE HAVE HAD THE SAME PROBLEM!!!. THE COST OF REPAIR HAS KEPT ME FROM GETTING IT REPAIRED AND THE DEALERS REFUSE TO EVEN GOODWILL REPAIR IT, KNOWING THAT IT WAS A COMMON PROBLEM. I AM AFRAID TO DRIVE THE CAR, BUT IT IS THE ONLY VEHICLE I HAVE.
