 Description of the problemMy 2005 ford taurus all of the sudden started accelerating on its own. The first time this happened was october 1, 2012. I was going 45 mph when all of the sudden it started revving up even as i applied the brakes. I had to jump up onto a median at 65ish mph to avoid other cars. The brakes began to smoke and grind as i tried to stop. I had to apply the emergency brake to stop. Even stopped the motor continued to rev at 8000 rpm. I had to turn the car off. Since then the sudden acceleration has occurred five more times. I had to take it in for brake repairs and the mechanic said he didn't know what was causing the acceleration and suggested i remove my floor mats as they may have gotten jammed under the pedal. While i know this to be false i nonetheless removed the floor mats and the condition remains. Another terrifying incident happened while i was visiting my daughter. She lives off a windy dirt road high on a leaf covered ridge. I usually don? T go any faster than 15 mph on her road. The car experienced another sudden acceleration as i was turning a bend. The car began to slide on the leaves and i bounced off a tree stump and almost hit my daughter? S fiancÉ. Again i applied the emergency brake to stop and had to turn the car off. The last occurrence happened in my driveway before i took the car out of park. I had to mash down on the accelerator to bring it back to idle. At this point i am too afraid to drive my car. I have incurred replacement brake bills and various car damages as a result of these incidents. Thankfully no one has been hurt.
