Consumer's wife took vehicle to the car wash. When the job was done she entered the vehicle, put it in drive, and without placing foot on the accelerator the vehicle took off, right out into oncoming traffic. Consumer put foot on the brakes, but vehicle kept racing. Consumer was finally able to bring vehicle under control. Consumer stated that his wife was almost killed because of this incident. Consumer felt that there was something defective in the accelerators of those vehicles. Consumer took the vehicle to a private mechanic, who stated that the vehicle was sprayed on the underside, and some of the spray affected the accelerator.
