Car has intermittent problem with acceleration. Will go into a fail safe mode, wont accelerate past 40-60 mph. I have had very close call on multiple accidents due to the fact I am unable to accelerate. My car lost power and could not pick up speed at all. This is a major safety issue and the car dealership will not help me.
