problem #2

Feb 282006

Wrangler 4WD 4-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 15,000 miles


: the contact stated that the vehicle accelerated uncontrollably while making a turn. The vehicle performed as if it was going to stall and then suddenly the vehicle leaped forward. Applying pressure to the brake pedal prevented the vehicle from moving forward but drastically increased the vehicle's RPM. Sudden acceleration occurred periodically when attempting to stop the vehicle, make a turn, or when the cruise control was engaged. Sudden acceleration has also occurred while the vehicle was in reverse. The vehicle was taken to the dealer five times however they could not determine the cause of the problem. The manufacturer has not been contacted

Accelarator pedal felt notchy and stuck down upon delivery. Service department said it was a normal characteristic of this vehicle type. However, upon inspection consumer found that the vehicle's carpet was protruding, obstructing the pedal. Carpet needed to be secured in order to prevent further obstruction.
