problem #1

Nov 082004

Sonata 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 107,263 miles
Speed control issue: The vehicle idle is rough & irregular, stalls without warning, $$$..expensive repairs-same problems. The stallings accounts for several near rear-end collisions. Finally, on Nov.8,2004. I press down on the accelerator, the vehicle accelerate from 0 to 40 mph in a matter of seconds, almost crashed into some parked vehicles. The vehicle transmission shifter was placed in neutral & brakes applied to stop this out-of -control vehicle. A non-experience driver would of crashed, injuring self, other(s) & property. The vehicle was pushed into a parking spot were it will remain until examined. Now, the throttle linkage is stuck in the open-position. Resolution: What must be done to resolve this "death-trap" issue"? should the Hyundai company be notified?"
