I HAVE A 2010 FORD F150 CREW CAB TRUCK. AN INCIDENT HAPPENED AROUND 3:30PM ON 4 24 2010. THE VEHICLE ONLY HAD 1700 MILES ON IT AT THE TIME. THE ACCELERATOR PEDAL STUCK TO THE FLOOR UNDER NORMAL DRIVING CONDITIONS. I HAD TO SLAM ON THE BRAKES AND THE VEHICLE INCREASED SPEED.THE MOTOR REVVED UP TO 7000RPM. I EVENTUALLY PUT IT INTO PARK AND TURNED OFF THE IGNITION. I WAS ABLE TO GET THE VEHICLE OFF THE ROAD INTO A PARKING LOT. FORTUNATELY, I WAS NOT INJURED AND NO ACCIDENT OCCURRED. I CALLED ROADSIDE ASSISTANCE AND THE VEHICLE WAS TOWED TO MAROONE FORD IN MARGATE, FL. IT WAS LOOKED AT BY THE SERVICE DEPARTMENT ON 4 26 2010. THEY INSPECTED THE VEHICLE AND ROAD TESTED IT FOR ONLY 4 MILES AND SAID NO PROBLEM COULD BE FOUND. THEY CALLED ME LATER THAT AFTERNOON AND TO PICK UP MY VEHICLE IN THE MORNING. I DID NOT FEEL SAFE AT ALL DRIVING THE VEHICLE! I DID NOT FEEL THAT THEY TOOK THIS INCIDENT SERIOUSLY. I DECIDED TO GET A SECOND OPINION FROM ANOTHER DEALERSHIP. I TOOK THE TRUCK TO SAWGRASS FORD IN SUNRISE, FLORIDA (WHERE I PURCHASED THE VEHICLE) WHERE THE HEAD OF THE SERVICE DEPARTMENT PERSONALLY TOOK CARE OF ME. HE UNDERSTOOD MY CONCERN AND SAID THAT HE WOULD THOROUGHLY CHECK OUT THE VEHICLE. THEY KEPT THE TRUCK FOR 4 DAYS, TEST DROVE IT FOR OVER 125 MILES, RAN ALL COMPUTERIZED TESTS, AND ALSO PULLED OFF ALL WHEELS AND CHECKED THE BRAKES. THEY COULD NOT REPLICATE THE INCIDENT. WHEN PICKING UP THE VEHICLE, THE SERVICE MANAGER ASSURED ME THE VEHICLE WAS SAFE. HE ALSO ADMITTED THAT THIS HAD OCCURRED IN OTHER F150 TRUCKS, BUT SAID THEY HAD NEVER TREATED THE PROBLEM AT THEIR DEALERSHIP. AS OF NOW, I HAVE BEEN DRIVING THE VEHICLE FOR TWO WEEKS WITHOUT INCIDENT. I WANTED TO DOCUMENT WHAT HAPPENED TO ME SHOULD THIS TYPE OF INCIDENT OCCUR AGAIN.
