MDX 6-cyl

2001 Acura. While driving last evening in 35 mph zone. Pushed and released the "set speed" button on steering wheel to maintain safe, legal speed. Car immediately started to accelerate. I let it go to see if it would cease; it did not, so finally at 60 mph, I tapped the brake to disengage and slow down to correct speed. Tried to reproduce, once, did not recur. But scary event nonetheless.
