While driving on the highway with my cruise control set between 50-70mph, I began noticing my speedometer beginning to jump between 0-120mph causing the limiter to kick in and me losing the ability to control speed. Keep in mind I'm only going between 50-70mph. This later began occurring without the cruise control on. Shortly after this began happening another problem started. Now when the cruise control was set between 50-70mph, the engine would automatically accelerate maxing out the rpm's and sending the vehicle to approximately 80-90mph before I had to hit the brakes or completely cut off the cruise control. Later on when I would set the cruise control the vehicle would begin to jerk violently, revving high then going back to normal before revving high again and me shutting off the cruise control. There was never a check engine light the whole time this was happening. I immediately took it in to the dealer I purchased it from, randy marion GMC in huntersville, nc, to be checked. I was told that I had a bad mass air flow sensor. That was replaced but the problem was still occurring. I took it back a second time and they could not find anything wrong so I began reading blogs to see if anyone else has had this same problem. Some had similar issues and said the ignition coils may be bad. I had those checked and all were good. This vehicle has never been in an accident and I am the only owner. I've contacted gm, general motors, about this and was told that there were no recall issues but have yet to have my calls returned by the person handling this case. This vehicle is not safe and no one seems to be listening.

While traveling on the highway with the cruise control set at 72mph, which had been on and in place for about 20 minutes, I looked down and saw that the car was now going 85 - even though I had not touched the accelerator. I decided that I would hit the brake a little to deactivate the cruise and reset it. After touching the brake, but before I put my foot on the accelerator the car was back up to 80 - 85. I played around with the cruise control switch, hoping to stop the problem. Nothing worked in that regard, so I thought I would just get off the highway, turn the car off (which would reset everything), and start over. While traveling to the exit, which was about two miles, I had to keep significant pressure on the brakes to keep the car at an acceptable highway speed. Once I pulled off onto the exit ramp, I realized that the car would not stop. I was standing on the brake with both feet to get it slowed down to make the turn off the ramp. Since the car would not stop, I tried putting the car into neutral to get the pull off the wheels, at which time the rpms red-lined. I tried all the different gears, which had the same result. I braced myself for the jolt and threw the car into park, no jolt - the rpms went to red-line. At this point I was headed for a gas station and I turned the car off. Upon shutting the car off, a huge puff of black smoke came out from under the hood, and everything smelled like burning rubber. A tow truck towed us back to the dealership, where they have been of no help what so ever.
