I WAS DRIVING ON THE HIGHWAY. THE CRUISE CONTROL BUTTON WAS ON BUT I WAS NOT USING THE CRUISE CONTROL. HAVEN'T USED IT IN A COUPLE WEEKS BUT THE BUTTON WAS SHOWING ON THE DASH. I TOOK MY FOOT OF THE GAS PETAL TO SLOW DOWN AND THE CAR BEGAN ACCELERATING. FIRST I TRIED TO APPLY THE BRAKE AND THAT SLOWED THE CAR DOWN CONSIDERABLE BUT I I COULD TEL IT WAS STILL TRYING TO ACCELERATE AND I DIDN'T WANT TO WEAR OUT THE BRAKES AND HAVE NO WAY OF STOPPING SO I TOOK MY FOOT OFF THE BRAKE AND TRIED JIGGLING THE GAS WITH MY FOOT THINKING IT WAS STUCK OR BLOCKED AND IT WASN'T. IT FELT LIKE HOW THE GAS PEDAL FEELS WHEN IT'S IN CRUISE CONTROL JUST KIND OF JIGGLING AS YOU PRESS IT. SO I TURNED THE CRUISE CONTROL BUTTON OFF DID AND IT WAS STILL ACCELERATING SO I PUT TH CAR IN NEUTRAL IT REVVED UP TO A VERY HIGH RPM CAN'T REMEMBER EXACTLY WHAT BUT IT SOUNDS LIKE IT WAS FULL THROTTLE DID THAT FOR ABOUT 2-3 SECONDS WHILE I BRAKED AND SLOWED THE CAR DOWN THEN IT STOPPED REVVING AND AFTER I STOPPED FOR S COUPLE MINUTES I DROVE AGAIN AND IT WAS FINE THE REST OF THE DAY. I WAS GOING ABOUT 65 WHEN IT GOT STUCK AND IT GOT UP TO HIGH 70S BEFORE I APPLIED THE BRAKE AND GOT IT DOWN TO 60 THEN IT BEGAN ACCELERATING AGAIN AND GOT UP TO LIKE 70 BEFORE I PUT IT IN NEUTRAL. IF SOMEONE ELSE WAS DRIVING AND DIDN'T THINK TO PUT THE CAR IN NEUTRAL IT COULD HAVE BEEN MUCH MORE SERIOUS.
