ON TWO DIFFERENT OCCASIONS. FIRST, MY WIFE WAS DRIVING APPROXIMATELY 30 MPH AND THE CAR RAPIDLY ACCELERATED TO APPROX 55. DIFFICULT TO STOP, ENGINE REVVED UP TO 5K ON TACH. SECOND INCIDENT (NEXT DAY), I WAS DRIVING ON HIGHWAY DOING 65 MPH. CAR ACCELERATED RAPIDLY TO 85 MPH AND WOULD NOT SLOW DOWN UNTIL I THREW THE TRANNY INTO NEUTRAL. CAR WAS REVVING AT APPROX 5K ON TACH. I BROUGHT THE CAR TO MY MECHANIC. CRUISE CONTROL CABLE CHANGED. I HAVE BEEN DRIVING 36 YEARS AND THIS SCARED THE HELL OUT OF ME. NO INSTANCES SINCE. IS FORD GOING TO WAIT FOR SOMEONE TO BE KILLED. MY TWO DAUGHTERS WHO DRIVE THE CAR OFTEN WOULD NOT HAVE KNOWN WHAT TO DO IN THESE INSTANCES. THERE IS NO DOUBT INJURY OR DEATH WOULD HAVE OCCURRED IF WITHER OF THEM WERE DRIVING THE VEHICLE. ARE THERE NOT ENOUGH DOCUMENTED CASES TO REQUIRE FORD/GM TO STEP UP TO THE PLATE? PLEASE HELP US THAT HAVE INCURRED THE EXPENSE AS WELL AS THOSE WHO HAVE YET TO EXPERIENCE WHAT THOUSANDS OF US HAVE. UPDATED 7/31/13 THE CONSUMER STATED THE SUDDEN ACCELERATION OCCURRED AGAIN, THIS TIME WHILE HIS DAUGHTER WAS DRIVING. UPDATED 08/06/13
