Parking car into parking bay between building support and other car. With my foot on brake and at a stop I reached to place car in park when for no reason the car accelerated over a concrete parking stop, through a ditch, out of the ditch before striking another truck head on in the parking area across the ditch. My foot was on the brake the entire time and I did not touch the shifter at all! the car could be revving very high as it move forward and I pressed the brake pedal as hard as I could to no avail. Preliminary discussions with dealership have insinuated this could not have happened and they seem to be resisting to look into this mechanical malfunction. Very concerned this can happen again where someone could get killed!!.

Problems with vehicle's transmission. The first time the consumer took the vehicle in for service was for a noisy
transmission and it was running rough. The dealer was unable to find a problem but topped of the fluid and reprogrammed the pcm. The dealer instructed the consumer to continue driving the vehicle and it would work itself out. The second visit was for the transmission again, however this time it was griding between first, second and third gears when cold. The dealer was unable to find a problem, but informed the consumer other Mustangs were having the problem and they were waiting on a bulleitn to see what could be done.

Pre-accident conditions: daylight, raining, car stopped at red light. A few minutes prior to arriving at the red light the driver's power seat moved all the way forward completly on its own accord after stopping at the red light I re-adjusted the driver's seat and when the light turned green I proceeded making a right turn in my normal "old lady" fashion. About 3/4 through the 90 degree turn the rear wheels lost traction and began to slide to the left. I immediately hit the brake and turned the wheel to the left. (I suppose it is possible that I accidently hit the cruise control button located on the wheel at this time). Anyway the car engine contiued to rev and the rear wheels continued to spin, driving me into a complete 360 degree turn, all the time with my food hard on the brake pedal. While in this spin the rear of the car jumped a median curb twice, crossed two lanes of asphalt, jumped another curb and finally crash into a concrete light pole. Only then did the car stall and the drive wheels stop spinning.
