problem #1

Feb 032005

TL 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 25,011 miles
Accelerator cable/wire snapped in half without warning.. the gas pedal went straight to the floor. Luckily, I was not on the freeway doing 70mph since there was absolutely no control of my vehicle after the cable broke. The part was replaced, however, the car only had 25,011 miles on it. The car is only 2001 Acura which has been maintained with safety maintenance checks every 7,500 miles. However, there is no check on the automotive check list for accelerator cable. As a matter of fact, this is not suppose to happen at all. The Acura dealer did not even carry the part in their stock. How could this freaky breakage occur" why was the accelerator faulty"
