 Description of the problemBacking into the garage, my foot on brake, the engine suddenly revved to high rpm, the car shot backwards, propelling a heavy rubber mat on which the car is normally parked out of the garage and into the driveway. The vehicle then impacted and crashed through the rear garage wall before coming to a stop. I managed to pry the gear lever out of reverse, hit drive instead and sent the car, wheels still spinning and laying down rubber, forward out of the garage. On its way out the car swiped along the right side the garage door post before finally coming to a stop in the driveway. Final result, serious damage to both the car and the garage. Fortunately this did not occur in traffic or with pedestrians in the area. On-line research has since shown me that there have been numerous other similar incidents where hyundai sonatas have suddenly accelerated on their own. See http://www. Carproblemzoo.
