2008 FORD F150 CONSUMER STATED THAT VEHICLE SELF-ACCELERATED AT FULL THROTTLE. THE CONSUMER STATED HE HAD HIS FOOT LIGHTLY ON THE BRAKE PEDAL; WHEN HE SHIFTED FROM PARK TO REVERSE, THE VEHICLE ACCELERATED AT FULL THROTTLE AND THRUST BACKWARDS AT AN UNSAFE RATE OF SPEED. THE CONSUMER APPLIED THE BRAKE IMMEDIATELY AND SHIFTED TO PARK; THE ENGINE WAS STILL RACING AT FULL THROTTLE. HE SHUT OFF THE ENGINE, WAITED A FEW MINUTES AND THEN RESTARTED THE VEHICLE AGAIN AND DROVE HOME. ON JANUARY 13, 2010, THE SAME THING HAPPENED AGAIN. IT HAPPENED FOR A THIRD TIME WHILE STOPPED AT AN INTERSECTION ATTEMPTING TO MAKE A RIGHT TURN, WITH HIS FOOT ON THE BRAKE AND THE VEHICLE SPONTANEOUSLY ACCELERATED. THE DEALER HAD THE VEHICLE FOR 2 1/2 DAYS, BUT THEY WERE UNABLE TO DUPLICATE THE PROBLEM.
