WHILE DRIVING, THE CAR SPEEDS UP WITHOUT CONTROL OF THE DRIVER. THIS HAS HAPPENED THREE TIMES IN THE LAST MONTH. EACH TIME THIS HAS HAPPENED, THE CAR HAS BEEN BETWEEN 25 AND 40 MPH. THE CAR BEGINS TO SPEED UP OF ITS OWN POWER. THE SPEED WILL CONTINUE TO RISE UNLESS YOU CAN STOP THE CAR WITH PRESSURE FROM THE BRAKES. ONCE THE CAR IS SLOWED BY USE OF THE BRAKES, IT MUST BE PUT INTO PARK. ONCE IN PARK, THE RPM WILL RACE TO 3500-4500. I SWITCHED THE CAR TO REVERSE, AND ONCE MY FOOT IS REMOVED FROM THE BRAKE THE CAR SPEEDS UP. IN MY EXPERIENCE, IT TAKES TURNING OFF AND ON THE CAR A COUPLE TIMES TO CORRECT THE SITUATION. THE CAR IS CURRENTLY AT A LOCAL INDEPENDENT SHOP, AND HAS BEEN FOR THE PAST WEEK. THUS FAR, THEY HAVE BEEN UNABLE TO DETERMINE THE CAUSE OF THE PROBLEM. PLEASE HELP WITH THIS VERY SERIOUS ISSUE.
