2007 Jaguar XK Owner Comments

Incident #1 - Jan 2013: As I was braking to a stop, the car suddenly went to what I would call "full throttle". my foot was on the brake so I firmly pressed the brake to prevent the car from crashing into my building. I tried pumping the accelerator quickly while practically standing on the brake but that made no difference in the rpms. I pressed the button to stop the engine. I re-started the car and it ran normally. Incident #2 - Feb 2013: Thinking incident #1, above, was a fluke, I continued driving the car without reporting the incident to my Jaguar dealer. My vice president and I stopped at a mcdonald's, paid at window #1 and as we moved to window #2 to pick up the food, the car again went to full throttle¯with no advance warning with the back wheels spinning. My foot was on the brake as there was a car in the lane in front of me. This time I knew to turn the engine off quickly. Again, the car ran normally after re-starting it. My vice president, jack french, will provide testimony to this incident. Incident #3 - early April 2013: The car was parked all day. I got in to leave for the day and started the engine. While the car was still in park, the engine revved to red-line 4 times in a row about 2 secs each. I took my foot off the brake pedal while it was doing this and never touched the accelerator or brake pedal during the incident. After revving four times to red line, the engine went back to normal idle. Incident #4 - April 25th: My vp and I were at a meeting with the car parked for several hours. We got in and drove about 4 blocks. As I braked to a stop at a stop sign with a car in front of me, the engine again went full-throttle with no warning; the back wheels spinning. I again pressed the start button and turned the engine off. My vice president will provide written testimony of this incident as well.
