3rd times a charm 2014 Jeep Compass the first time it happened to me in July or Aug (4 months after I got the car) and I thought it was my fault, while parking and hitting the brake my car accelerated out of nowhere. I thought I had hit the accelerator by mistake. Thank god there was a cement thing on the floor 2nd time: My sister and I around the holidays, we were in my Jeep Compass, also parking at the local mall this is where I knew it wasn't me but again there was a cement barricade and prevent anything bad from happening, so I thought it was a fluke now today again this happened while parking and stepping on the break out of nowhere my car accelerated this time nothing on the floor and ran into a post. Bam!! my cars hood is all messed-up and so is the bumper!! has anyone else had this issue with the accelerator? idk what to do!!!!

Squeaky brakes and acceleration problems. When I have a need for speed, the car down shifts and then accelerates is the best description I can give.
