problem #1

Sep 102003

ES 300 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 19,500 miles
Was driving to California in my 2002 Lexus ES300 last September and was adjusting the cruise control when suddenly it accelerated as if I had floored the gas pedal. Incident did not result in an accident. No problems since then but decided to report it as I read an article in the newspaper today that you were investigating unexpected accelerations for this car.
