Vehicle Speed Control problem #1

The vehicle accelerate on it on when is in park gear. I turn off the engine to stop the acceleration of rpm, I turn off engine when I saw it goes up to 6000 rpm, which I believe it could continue to raise. The vehicle also accelerate on it on when it in drive gear ( local and highway ), I safely pull over, put in park gear ( still accelerate ) and turn off engine. Overall it happen once a month since 2017, but 2 weeks ago ( 08/07/2017-08/13/2017) it happen twice. I bring it in dealership and they cannot find anything wrong with it using computerize test.

Vehicle Speed Control problem #2

On July 4 2017 at approximately 7:30am et I was waiting to park and had my foot on the brake when suddenly the engine revved and accelerated, moving the car forward and crashing into the passenger rear bumper of a parked Ford f-150. I pressed even harder on the brakes and the car continued to move forward as if it was sliding on ice; it created tire skid marks from my front tires - supporting that the brakes were engaged. I attempted to put the car in neutral and the engine continued to rev faster. The nose of my car was lowered due to my pressing on the brakes and as a result the front end of my car went under the bumper of the truck and began lifting the truck until it finally came to a stop. The conditions were sunny and the asphalt was dry. On Friday June 23 at approximately 2:00pm et I was backing down my driveway, which has a slight vertical decline, so the brakes were engaged. The car's engine suddenly revved and accelerated down the driveway into the street; once again, it felt as if I was sliding. The brakes were fully engaged. I was able to place the transmission in neutral and the car came to a stop. I placed the car in park and turned off the engine and restarted without any issue. Regarding the June 23 incident, the car was not driven for approximately 6-8 days. Relating to the incident on July 4; the last time the car was driven was on June 23. From June 23 through July 4 the car was parked at the airport. The only parallel that I can draw between these two instances is that the engine rev and acceleration occurred after the car had not been driven for a period of time. My research indicates this happened to many other drivers; however, the manufacturer claims there is no issue with the car and that it is human error; avoiding accountability. I will take a polygraph to prove this was not human error, rather a mechanical failure.
