While driving with the cruise engaged the car suddenly accelerated twice. Tapping brake and manually shutting off cruise control did not slow the car down. The consumer had to brake hard, put the vehicle in park and shut off the engine to get the vehicle to stop. Upon restarting the vehicle it ran [properly. The vehicle was taken to the dealer who could not duplicate the problem. It was later determined that the iac motor was the cause of the failure.
