HELLO, THIS IS THE SECOND TIME THIS CAR'S ACCELERATOR PETAL WENT OUT OF CONTROL (FORD TAURUS). ON YESTERDAY, I HAD MY DAUGHTER IN THE CAR AND THE CAR STARTED TO ACCELERATE ON IT'S ON FASTER, FASTER AND FASTER. IT WAS SO SCARY MY DAUGHTER SAID MOMMY YOU ARE SHAKING. EVEN WHILE HOLDING THE BREAKS DOWN I WAS ABLE TO SLOW IT DOWN BUT THE CAR WAS STILL MOVING. THIS HAPPENED PREVIOUSLY ABOUT 8 MONTHS OR SO AGO. THAT INCIDENT WAS REALLY BAD. I HAD TO CALL 911 WHILE DRIVING DOWN THE ROAD UNABLE TO STOP THE VEHICLE. AS I WAS SLIDING ON MY BREAKS I ALMOST GOT HIT IN THE BACK AS WELL AS ALMOST HIT SOMEONE ELSE. THIS HAPPENED IN A HIGH SPEED BUSY TRAFFICE AREA. I TOOK THE CAR BACK TO THE DEALER. THEY TOLD ME IT WAS NOTHING THEY COULD DO. THEY FIRST CHARGED ME OVER A HUNDRED DOLLARS TO LOOK AT IT. THEN WHEN HE DID A TEST DRIVE HE REFUNDED MY MONEY. I STILL OWE A GREAT DEAL OF MONEY ON THE CAR. SO, I CAN'T AFFORD PAY THE CAR NOTE AND PURCHASE A NEW CAR. I HAD CONTACTED THE FORD CORPORATE OFFICE. THEY INFORM ME THAT NOT ENOUGH FATALITIES HAVE TAKEN PLACE FOR THEM TO RECALL THE VEHICLE. I AM UNABLE TO GO TO WORK AND HAVE NO WAY OF GETTING THERE AND NO MONEY TO PAY THIS CAR OFF AND PURCHASE A NEW CARD. I CONTACTED PERFORMANCE FORD ON S. BLVD IN CHARLOTTE DURING THE PREVIOUS INCIDENT. THEY WERE NICE BUT SENT ME HOME WITH THE SAME CAR AND NOW THE ISSUES ARE BACK AGAIN. I AM TERRIFIED TO DRIVE MY CAR, RECENTLY DIVORCED WITH A DAUGHTER AND COLLEGE. CAN SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ME.
