The vehicle at around 40 mph will accelerate on its own reaching speed of 60-70 mph needing constant braking to maintain the speed limit of 45 mph. Upon start up it has a high idle taking 3-4 minutes to come down below 2 rpms.

I was driving to work and the vehicle accelerated out of control. I tried stopping the car, I put it into park, and even while in park it was still revving up to 4 or 5 thousand rpms. I re-started the car hoping this would "re-set" the vehicle. No such luck. As for now, the vehicle's gas pedal is either stuck, or something is wrong with the cruise control cable. Either way, the situation, in my opinion, is extremely dangerous. My brakes began to smoke before I could get the vehicle home and wait for my husband to help me figure out what to do next.

I purchased a 2006 Ford Taurus on June 24th, 2012. The Taurus was in excellent condition and it ran wonderfully, for the first seven months of ownership. However, in November of 2012, the car began randomly shutting off, sometimes while I was driving. It would happen sporadically and I thought it was a problem that could be fixed. However, after taking it to a Ford dealership on two different occasions, no mechanic is able to figure out the problem. The reason being that since it happens sporadically, no one can duplicate it nor is there any saved censor abnormalities. I have replaced the fuel pump, hoping that would fix the problem. However, it has not. Sometimes it will happen up to six times in one day while IżżM going as fast as 50 M.P.H. I refuse to drive on the highway because I fear for my life since the car shuts off without warning. Sometimes the car will turn back on and other times, I will have to turn the engine off and re-turn on the car. This is a serious problem and a serious safety issue. I am now stuck with a car that does not work properly and is a danger to my well-being each time I get behind the wheel. I do not blame the dealership for selling me the car; however, I do blame the Ford Motor Company for this very serious and very faulty problem. Please consider this as a formal complaint against the Ford Motor Company and I urge you to take this issue seriously, for my safety as well as other Ford Taurus owners.
