One of my automotive forum member experienced a serious sudden acceleration issue with his Hyundai Genesis 2 door car, 2010 model. The issue was believed to be caused by vdc(vehicle dynamic control software) that Hyundai motor in south korea admitted but refused to do any action against this issue. The Hyundai car, Genesis, can be accelerated suddenly without pressing the acceleration pedal. The engine rpm was risen upto 6,000 rpm without pressing the pedal and the rpm never dropped again. Hyundai r&d center found the car had different size of wheel at the front side. The owner then withdrew the complaint against the Hyundai motor inc in south korea. But I want NHTSA need to investigate this issue because other drivers in USA can experience the same safety issue. This might cause fatal accidents if the front tire lose air pressure. The Hyundai motor seems to hide this issue without doing recalls.
