FORD TAURUS 2005 HAS BEEN AUTO-ACCELERATING, RANDOM BUT FREQUENT ENOUGH TO BE A CONCERN. THE WORST CASE INVOLVED AN APPROACH TO A RED TRAFFIC LIGHT AND THE BRAKES HAD TO BE FORCED AND THE AUTO PLACED IN NEUTRAL, WHERE RPM WAS OVER 3000 ON ITS OWN. THE CAR RESTARTED AT THE TRAFFIC LIGHT, TEMPORARILY AT IDLE RPM, BUT SIMILAR ISSUE AT THE NEXT TRAFFIC LIGHT 0.5 MILES AWAY. SHUT THE CAR DOWN AGAIN AND RESTARTED. DROVE IT HOME WITHOUT INCIDENT. NEXT DAY, NO ABNORMAL BEHAVIOR. PRIOR TO THIS MOST SERIOUS ISSUE, THE CAR HAS OCCASIONALLY STAYED AT SPEED ON THE HIGHWAY OR ACCELERATED ON ITS OWN WITHOUT THE GAS PEDAL PRESSED AND NO CRUISE CONTROL ENGAGED. CAR TAKEN TO THE DEALER FOR REVIEW BUT THEY STATED THEY COULD NOT REPRODUCE. SUGGESTED NEW PARTS ADDRESS CAR IDLING AS A POTENTIAL SOLUTION BUT COULD NOT GUARANTEE RESOLUTION.
