TOOK DELIVERY OF 2008 FORD F-150 LARIAT CREW CAB 4X4 ON 4/23/08. YESTERDAY 4/29/08 I WAS PREPARING TO PULL INTO A PARKING LOT FROM A TWO LANE HIGHWAY AND THE TRUCK SPONTANEOUSLY ACCELERATED AT FULL THROTTLE WITH MY FOOT FIRMLY ON THE BRAKE. I HAD THE SENSATION THAT I WAS HIT FROM BEHIND BECAUSE I WAS ADVANCING WITHOUT APPLYING THE ACCELERATOR. WITH THE BRAKES FULLY APPLIED I CONTINUED TO ADVANCE INTO THE PARKING LOT AND I IMMEDIATELY SHIFTED INTO PARK IN ATTEMPT TO STOP THE VEHICLE. THE VEHICLE CAME TO A STOP AND THE ENGINE WAS RACING AT FULL THROTTLE IN PARK, I THEN TURNED THE IGNITION OFF AND THE ENGINE STOPPED. FROM THE TIME I EXPERIENCED THE SENSATION OF BEING HIT FROM BEHIND UNTIL THE VEHICLE CAME TO REST, I ESTIMATE THE DISTANCE OF TRAVEL AT 50 FEET. THERE WERE TWO PASSENGERS IN THE TRUCK WITH ME THAT WITNESSED THE EVENT AND CONCURRED THAT THE TRUCK HAD ACCELERATED SPONTANEOUSLY. I BROUGHT THE TRUCK TO THE DEALER, EXPLAINED THE EXPERIENCE AND AFTER CHECKING IT OUT INFORMED ME THAT NO PROBLEM COULD BE FOUND. I AM EXTREMELY CONCERNED THAT THIS COULD HAPPEN AGAIN AND THE POTENTIAL CONSEQUENCES COULD BE CATASTROPHIC.
