I was driving off a heavy traveled roadway, turning a exit ramp suddenly my 2005 Taurus wagon suddenly accelerated without me placing my foot on the gas pedal. I had to slow the car down, putting it in neutral, hopping the car would stop. I nearly ran into the car in front of me and the car stopped. In discussing this with several family members in the family, they too experienced the same thing with the car quickly accelerating on its own. Several weeks ago I attended a seminar in atlantic city, it began to snow and I traveled approximately 50 miles home in the ice and snow. I am surely glad that the car did not accelerate on its own at that time. A very serious safety feature. Someone could have been killed.
