I WAS DRIVING ALONG AND ALL OF SUDDEN MY CAR FELT LIKE AN OUT OF BODY EXPERIENCE AND WAS ACCELERATING FASTER THAN I WAS GOING. I WAS ABLE TO COME TO A STOP AFTER APPLYING THE BRAKES VERY HARD. SHUT THE CAR OFF - STARTED IT AGAIN 2 DIFFERENT TIME AND THE TACHOMETER WENT UP TO 3 RPM - ON THE THIRD TRY I TAPPED THE GAS PEDAL AND THE RPM'S CAME DOWN. I DROVE HOME (APPROX. 8 MILES) SAFELY WITHOUT ANY FURTHER INCIDENTS. I TOOK IT TO THE DEALER THE NEXT DAY - I TOLD THEM WHAT HAD OCCURRED AND I ALSO MENTIONED THAT MY CRUISE CONTROL WAS NOT WORKING. (THIS IS THE THIRD TIME I HAD TROUBLE WITH MY CRUISE CONTROL) THEY ARE REPLACING THE THROTTLE CONTROL BODY AND SPEED CONTROL CABLE. I AM NOW WAITING TO HEAR FROM THEM TO PICK UP MY CAR. WHAT I DON'T UNDERSTAND IS THIS - IF IT IS KNOWN THERE IS A PROBLEM WITH THE GAS PEDAL STICKING WHY HAS THERE NOT BEEN A RECALL. ARE YOU WAITING UNTIL SOME SERIOUS ACCIDENT OCCURS OR FOR A FATALITY? I AM JUST GLAD I WAS NOT ON A CONGESTED HIGHWAY WHEN THIS HAPPENED - IT WAS 9:00 PM AT NIGHT ON MY WAY HOME AFTER VISITING MY SONS AND BELIEVE ME WHEN I SAY I WAS QUITE UPSET AND SHAKING WHEN THIS OCCURRED. I NEVER WANT TO EXPERIENCE SOMETHING LIKE THIS AGAIN. I WISH YOUR ASSOCIATION WOULD LOOK INTO THIS FURTHER SO IT CAN BE RECTIFIED. THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME AND ATTENTION TO THIS SUBMITTAL.
