 Description of the problemThe plastic bracket that attaches the cruise control cable assembly to the throttle is defective it slips off the throttle and gets caught causing the throttle to stay open.. This has caused my car to continue accelerating with my foot on the gas pedal to speeds in excess of 50 mph... Braking is difficult because the car is continuing to accelerate.. This is causing stress on my braking system... I had a brother who was nearly killed in an accident because of a similar issue on a different vehicle .. The ford reps i have talked to are aware of the issue yet ford refuses to issue a safety recall.. Are the waiting to be the next "gm" in the news.. Waiting until people are killed instead of being proactive...
