On 2 separate occasions vehicle experienced input and output sensor failure. The sensor controls and communicates with the rpms and transmission, per consumer. When this failure occurs vehicle immediately drops into second gear and accelerates from 30 - 60 mph, without accelerator pedal being depressed. The dealership and manufacturer are aware of the failure and are replacing sensor with a newer model.
