MKZ 6-cyl

  • 61,000 miles


Approximately 1 month ago (in may, 2014), while in the parked position and in a parking space, no foot on brake or accelerator, my 2007 Lincoln Mkz (61,000 miles) engine suddenly revved up and began to thrust forward. I immediately hit my brake hard, which stopped the car prior to hitting the curb or other obstacles; however, had it not been for my quick reflex, I shudder to think what might have happened! there was a curb, a trash can, and a building directly in front of me, and had I not been able to stop the car, there's no doubt I would have plowed straight thru all! I researched the problem online, but found no recalls except on floor mats that get stuck. I don't have the factory installed floor mats in my car and doubt that this is my problem. I did find a few similar complaints about the racing, surging, accelerating engine issues occurring with this make & model. I printed out these complaints and took to my local Ford dealership. They researched it as well and found no recalls and of course they offered to check out the car, inquiring about my extended warranty, if any. I've since had a few incidences of minor unprovoked engine racing while driving that didn't appear to be too critical; however, I have this situation on my mind while driving and the thoughts are unsettling! I don't know what to do at this point as I don't have money for expensive repairs! are there any updates about recalls, etc. Concerning this situation as my life as well as the lives of others are on the line!
