The contact owns a 2002 Honda Accord. While driving 55 mph, the vehicle accelerated unexpectedly. She applied the brakes, but the vehicle did not slow down. The contact had to pull over to the side of the road, shift into park, and apply the emergency brake. The vehicle was towed to the dealer and they stated that the cruise control, accelerator cables, and the opening of the throttle body needed to be replaced. The repair would cost over $1,000. The manufacturer would not assist because the vehicle was out of warranty. The VIN was unknown. The failure mileage was 118,000.
