  • Automatic transmission
  • 81,500 miles
I had a terrifying experience with sudden acceleration with the car heading well over 100 mph on the pa turnpike. Nothing in car responded - brakes, emergency brake, gear shifting...had to turn off car to stop it! roadside assistance was called. Car was towed this morning (2 days after situation) and is now at dealership. They checked under the hood and said that all was fine - the battery cover looked out of place. I just had this car in last week for the transmission recall. I am afraid to drive this car, let alone have my daughter drive it. I have heard nothing further today.
