 Description of the problemOn the afternoon of february 14th, 2012 i was driving my vehicle in a residential area of west philadelphia when the car began to lurch forward when i applied the brake. When i took my foot of the brake, the car proceeded to accelerate at a speed of approximately 30 mph without my foot being on the accelerator. I went down one city block with the car still moving without me pushing the accelerator. I then pulled the car over and put the car in park and the engine continued to rev at approx 3000-4000 rpm. I then turned the car completely off and let it sit for about 5 minutes. I then turned it back on and the car continued to rev at 3000-4000 rpm while still in park. I then turned the car off and called for someone to pick me up as i believed the car was unsafe to drive. When my friend arrived, he attempted to start the car, and it started normally. He then drove the car back to my residence without incident. Then on the afternoon of march 14th, 2012 i was again driving through a residential area at around 30 mph. I pushed on the brake when approaching a stop light and the car continued to lurch forward. I became very afraid as i was close to the car in front of me and it appeared as though the car would not completely stop. After pressing down hard on the brake, it did come to a complete stop, but was jerky and shaky when idle. When the light turned green, i proceeded down the street as i could not find a safe place to pull over because there were children in the area and i feared the car may keep going if i again attempted to stop. As it did on 2/14, the car coasted down the street at approximately 30-40 mph without me putting my foot on the accelerator. This time, i drove into a street without much traffic and after approximately 700 ft, the car began to drive normally. *js
