WHEN I TRIED TO SET THE CRUISE CONTROL IT WOULD NOT SET OR HOLD THE SPEED. LATER THAT DAY, WHEN DRIVING AT APPROXIMATELY 40 MPH, THE CAR DECIDED IT WAS GOING TO SPEED UP. I PUT MY FOOT ON THE BRAKE AND WHEN I TOOK IT OFF, THE CAR SPED UP AGAIN. I AGAIN PUT MY FOOT ON THE BRAKE AND PUT THE CAR IN NEUTRAL AS I PULLED TO THE SIDE OF THE ROAD. WHEN I GOT THE CAR STOP THE ENGINE RPMS WERE UP AROUND 4RPMS, AT THIS POINT I SHUT THE CAR OFF. I TOOK THE CAR TO A FORD DEALERSHIP AND THEY ENDED UP REPLACING THE CRUISE CONTROL CABLE WHICH WAS BROKEN. IT COST ME $140.43 THIS WAS ON 2-21-13 (143,350 MILES). ABOUT 3 DAYS AGO 2-6-14 (159,000MILES), THE CAR AGAIN DID THIS SAME THING. ONCE AGAIN I WILL BE TAKING IT INTO THE FORD DEALERSHIP TO HAVE THIS ISSUE FIXED. I AM HOPING THAT I WILL NOT BE CHARGED THIS TIME. THIS IS VERY DANGEROUS AND SCARY WHEN IT HAPPENS. I AM GLAD I WAS DRIVING THE CAR AND NOT MY 16 YEAR WHO IS JUST LEARNING TO DRIVE.
