HELLO, I'M SUBMITTING THIS REPORT DUE TO THE RECENT RECALL OF FORD TAURUS VEHICLES WITH THE GAS PEDAL STICKING. PLEASE EXPAND THIS RECALL TO INCLUDE OTHER YEARS, SPECIFICALLY MY VEHICLE'S (2005). ON NUMEROUS OCCASIONS, I HAVE BEEN INCHING ALONG IN TRAFFIC OR HAVE REMOVED MY FOOT FROM THE GAS PEDAL ONLY TO DISCOVER THAT THE CAR SUDDENLY ACCELERATES. I HAVE NARROWLY AVOIDED A CAR ACCIDENT BECAUSE OF THIS PROBLEM. AT FIRST I THOUGHT IT WAS ME, HOWEVER THE SAME THING HAPPENED WHEN MY BOYFRIEND WAS DRIVING THE CAR. HE HAD TO PRESS DOWN ON THE BRAKES HARD AND WE COULD STILL FEEL THE CAR ATTEMPTING TO ACCELERATE- AT A RED LIGHT. I HAVE DISCOVERED TAPPING ON THE GAS WILL USUALLY CORRECT THE PROBLEM, HOWEVER IT IS VERY HAPPENSTANCE WHEN IT OCCURS AND IS VERY FRIGHTENING. PLEASE EXPAND THE RECALL, THERE ARE NEWER YEARS' THAT ARE ALSO AFFECTED. (AS A SIDE-NOTE, I PURCHASED MY VEHICLE USED AND IT DID NOT COME WITH FLOOR MATS, SO THIS IS NOT AN ISSUE OF A FLOOR MAT BEING STUCK.) THANK YOU.
