2007 Hyundai Santa Fe Owner Comments

problem #2

Apr 052008

Santa Fe 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 17,500 miles


Was driving 2007 Hyundai sante fe at 90km per hour on highway. Went to accelerate to 110km per hour and immediately felt accelerator move away from my foot where it remained pinned against the floor. Noticed that cruise control light had come on the instrument panel but I did not engage the cruise control. I turned the cruise control button off and tapped brakes. Vehicle did not slow down and accelerator remained pressed to mat. Applied full force to brakes and managed to slow down to put vehicle in park. Vehicle began revving very high so I put vehicle back into drive and it began moving on it's own since accelerator was still fully depressed. I depressed on the brakes again, put vehicle into park and turned vehicle off, waited 30 seconds and restarted engine. Accelerator has worked normally since and vehicle will be taken to dealership. There were no loads on the vehicle other than lights being on and the temperature conditions were cool with average humidity for the area. Overall, a very frightening experience.
