I WAS DRIVING INTOWN AND TRIED TO SLOW DOWN AS I WAS APPROACHING A RAILROAD TRACK AND MY CAR JUST SPEEDED UP ACCELERATION AS I WAS TRYING TO BRAKE. I HAD TO FIGHT TO HOLD THE CAR BACK. I HAVE NOT HAD ANY ACCIDENTS BUT FELT THAT WHAT IF....SOMETHING DID HAPPEN WHEN I AM TRYING TO STOP AND THE CAR RACES LIKE THAT AND I DO HAVE AN ACCIDENT. I HAVE HAD TRANSMISSION REPLACED BACK AT 78,500 MILES WHEN MY CAR WAS TOTALLY OUT OF WARRANTY AT 75,000 AND SINCE THEN I HAVE NOT EXPERIENCED THIS SAME SPEED CONTROL PROBLEM OTHER THAN FOR A FEW MINOR SPURTS IN THE LAST 6,000 MILES. I NOW HAVE 103,000 MILES ON THIS VEHICLE. IT HAS BEEN A VERY SCARY THING FOR THIS SPEED CONTROL PROBLEM JUST TO POP UP OUT OF THE CLEAR BLUE. IT IS A DEFINITE SAFETY ISSUE.
