  • 20,000 miles
The contact owns a 2009 Ford Mustang. While parked, the contact placed the gear shifter into drive and the vehicle suddenly accelerated without depressing the accelerator pedal. The vehicle was taken to an authorized dealer for diagnostics, where the technicians stated that the tp sensor of the throttle body needed to be replaced because it fractured. In addition, the gear kit and bearings were replaced. The metal filings from the rear axle assembly were also cleaned. The approximate failure mileage was 20,000.
