problem #3

On sat Dec 10 2018 I was bulling in to a parking space at walmart after 7am. I was going slowly and started a left turn into a parking space. As I turned I was lightly on the brake, suddenly the engine revved to a high speed and the car surged forward. I pushed hard on the brakes but it still kept going at a lower rate but I could not stop, it was making straining creaking sounds. I had turned left to avoid the SUV facing me in the other space facing me when it surged forward. There was a cart corral there that I hit and pushed it and it swung around and moved into the driving lane still moving. I pushed the gear shift into neutral and the revves dropped immediately and the car stopped then. There was no reason for the engine to speed up, I was braking lightly as I approached the parking space and I continued trying to brake until it finally stopped. I was at no time on the gas peddle, there was not carpet or other object to interfere with the gas peddle. When I moved the shift lever to neutral the engine dropped to a idle immediately. There was scratches on the hood, bumper and headlight cover and small dent in driver door. No injuries and I was able to push the corral back in place by hand. I researched unexplained acceleration for Acura and Honda and found accounts of Honda incidents very similar to mine with much worse.outcomes. I filed an insurance claim and now I am going to contact Acura. I took pictures with my phone but haven't gotten them to the computer
