TO WHOM IT CONCERNS, BACK IN OCTOBER OF 2013, I PURCHASED A USED, BUT VERY WELL KEPT, 2006 FORD MUSTANG GT PREMIUM. AFTER A YEAR OR SO, I EXPERIENCED A PROBLEM THAT HAS LEFT ME AFRAID TO DRIVE THE CAR. WHILE SLOWLY PULLING INTO A PARKING SPACE TO PARK MY CAR, I BROUGHT THE VEHICLE TO A COMPLETE STOP, ABOUT TO SHIFT INTO PARK, WHILE MY FOOT WAS STILL DEPRESSING THE BRAKE PEDAL, THE ENGINE BEGAN TO THROTTLE UP OVERPOWERING THE BRAKES CAUSING THE BACK WHEELS TO SPIN AND THE CAR TO MOVE FORWARD. THE HARDER I PUSHED DOWN THE BRAKE PEDAL, THE MORE IT THROTTLED UP UNTIL IT SHOT ME UP AND OVER THE CEMENT WHEEL STOP IN FRONT OF THE PARKING STALL AND ONTO THE GRASS MEDIAN AT WHICH TIME I TURNED THE IGNITION OFF AND SLAMMED THE SHIFTER UP INTO PARK. I WAS DUMBFOUNDED! I THOUGHT MAYBE SOMEHOW WHEN MY FOOT WAS ON THE BRAKE PEDAL, IT WAS ALSO CATCHING THE SIDE OF THE ACCELERATOR PEDAL THUS MAKING IT SEEM LIKE THE HARDER I PUSHED DOWN ON THE BRAKE PEDAL, THE MORE THE ENGINE WOULD THROTTLE UP AS WELL. I EVENTUALLY SHOOK IT OFF AND WENT ABOUT MY DAY. THREE DAYS LATER, WHILE PULLING INTO MY BROTHERS GARAGE AND AGAIN, COMING TO A COMPLETE STOP, IT THROTTLED UP AGAIN THE SAME WAY AND MY BROTHER WAS STANDING IN FRONT OF THE CAR. HE THOUGHT I WAS PLAYING UNTIL HE SAW THE PANIC ON MY FACE. HE NO SOONER JUMPED OUT OF THE WAY WHEN THE CAR SHOT FORWARD ALMOST HITTING HIM! THIS CONTINUES TO HAPPEN NEVER KNOWING WHEN OR WHERE. IT ALSO HAS DONE THIS WHILE JUST SLOWING DOWN TO ALMOST A STOP. I CONTACTED FORD WHO CLAIMED IGNORANCE AND WOULDN'T DO ANYTHING TO HELP. LOOKED ONLINE FOR OTHERS HAVING THIS PROBLEM AND FOUND HUNDREDS OF POSTS, EVEN LAW SUITES AGAINST FORD. I NOTICED PEOPLE DESCRIBING THE ACCELERATOR STICKING OR GOING TO THE FLOOR. THAT CAN'T HAPPEN, THERE'S NO CABLE CONNECTION TO THE THROTTLE. ELECTRICAL OR COMPUTER DEFECT IN FORD'S DRIVE BY WIRE SYSTEM. THIS NEEDS TO BE FIXED! HELP!
