 Description of the problemOn november 11th, 2001 i experienced a terrifying and potentially life-threatening incident with my car. On that evening, i was approaching a stop sign at a busy intersection, and when i pressed on the brake the car wouldnt stop and instead a sudden acceleration forced me into the middle of the intersection. I was able to stop the vehicle by using the emergency brake. Since this has never happened before, i thought it was an isolated incident, so i continued to drive the vehicle. It seemed to be operating properly for the next week or so, when it occurred again. On the evening of november 21st, 2001 i was dropping a friend off at home when i proceeded into a parking space. As i pulled forward, out of nowhere, a sudden acceleration occurred and forced the car over the curb and up a hill. The passenger in my car pulled on the emergency brake and was able to stop the car. Another witness saw the rear tires spinning as the car took off over the curb and up the hill. Obviously there are some serious problems with this car.*ak
