My 2006 Ford Five hundred accelerates uncontrollably. When the car is shifted into gear it accelerates without throttling. It happens from park-to-any gear and sometimes when at traffic stops. I've noticed this problem for a while, but it is getting progressively worse. Scary!!!

Purchased a 2006 Ford Five hundred and noticed that when I would put the car in drive or reverse it would lurch forward or backward quite excessively. Called the dealer and took the car in and was told that the throttle body might be gummed up and that the battery also failed and could cause that problem due to resetting everytime the car starts. They cleaned the throttle body plates and replaced the battery and that same night the vehicle did the same thing when I put the car in reverse.

Ford needs to have a recall regarding the Five hundreds lunging when put in reverse and sometimes when put into drive. Mine started this about a year ago and I don't have to put my foot on the gas to go in reverse. Even when parked downhill! my husband and I know you must keep your foot on the brake anytime you take the car out of gear. It's very scary and we will not let anyone drive the car for fear of an accident. Please look into this!

My 2006 Ford 500 lunges intermittently when shifting from park to drive or reverse. The car was taken to a repair shop who could not reproduce the lunging and said nothing appeared wrong. Since it only occurs intermittently, it is difficult to even get it fixed. It appears many other Ford 500's are having the same problem.
