Taurus 6-cyl

My 2005 Ford Taurus accelerates on its own every so often. When it accelerates, I try to brake, but the car vibrates very badly and does not want to slow down. When I do get it slowed down enough, I pull into a parking lot. I put it in park and the RPM's jump to 4 or over. I floor the gas a couple times. This seems to correct the problem, but it keeps happening every couple months for about the last year.

Power transmission problem with my 2005 Ford Taurus, and my air conditioning unit which has not worked since March of 2008. I contracted Ford main office in dearborn mi. About the problem with no effort to help. At the time of the initial problem I had 68,000 miles on the car which I bought from a dealership in March of 2008. I am really disappointed in Ford and will never buy another car from them again. I have spent over $2000 on powertrans problems which started in July of 2008. My car stayed in the powertrans shop from July-Dec of 2008 and because I had no more money to invest in this car I have not been able to use my air conditioning since owning the car. I hate summer driving for that reason. Please review and note my complaint. If there is anything I can do to get my air conditioned fixed please let me know.

We bought an 05 Ford Taurus in June of 05. The car has a poor ventilation system. You have to turn the control panel knob to max A/C to cut outside air from getting into the car. Otherwise if want heat or A/C you have to breathe polluted air into the cabin of the car. This a health hazard and design flaw in this vehicle. Their have been no accidents, deaths, crashes, fires, property damage, but possible health problems from breathing in outside vehicle exhaust which I think is very hazardous and should be addressed by Ford and it's design team. Please do something to make this company responsible to their customer's.
