My 2000 Monte Carlo has had 3 instances of accelerator sticking on interstate driving. RPM's will increase to over 3000, luckily have been able to safely bring car under control and manage to get it off of highway and stopped by turning key off. It also will fail to start at times and if it does start, when I turn it off, may not start again. Had it in repair shop and they put it on diagnostic machine, but could not locate any problems. Need help!!!

I was proceeding to go up a hill and pressed on the pedal for a little more gas when all of a sudden it felt like the pedal caught on something and was being pulled closer to the floorboard and the car going faster and faster even after I took my foot off. I tapped the pedal two or three times before it finally let loose and engine was not racing. It has happened two times before but it was not as bad. I wanted to check on your site to see if there had been a recall before I take it to the garage.

Leather seats: The quailty of the leather was "poor" to say the least. Dealer did replace the rear seat after repeated complaints. Speed control: At about 40,000 miles, speed control makes audible sound upon engaging or disengaging. Dealer replaced speed control module and this did not stop the problem. Interior: The coating on the dash board is peeling. Steering: Makes aut\dible snapping ni\oise when turning. Dealer cannot find problem. Transmission: Engine cuts out when under load at 1800 -2500 RPM on hills. Tachometer jumps up and down. Dealer had the car for 4 days and couldn't recreate the problem. I took them for a test drive and recreated it over and over again.

Vehicle rolls back when on a hill, and it's even worse when A/C is on. RPM's aren't sufficient enough to hold vehicle on a hill.
