The contact owns a 2007 Lincoln Town car. The contact stated after shifting the vehicle into drive, the vehicle experienced an unintended acceleration which resulted in a crash through the passenger's garage. The vehicle was not able to stop even when the brake pedal was depressed. The contact was able to regain control of the vehicle after the vehicle was put into park and the key was removed. The vehicle was towed to an independent mechanic. A police report was filed. There was one injury reported that required medical attention. The manufacturer was not notified of the failure. The failure mileage was 60,000.

When key is inserted in ignition, the seat slams forward into the steering wheel and then reverses slamming to extreme back position and then reverses repeating action. At same time the brake and gas pedal extends upward and down. The forward seat motion could crush a chest against the steering wheel, and the backward motion could break legs of a person sitting in the back seat. If this occurs while car is in motion, there would be no way to control the car, I.e. no way to turn the steering wheel, or apply brakes. The car was in the dealer repeatedly for the 1st several years, and now the problem is recurring. The faulty seat movement is extremely fast--not at push button seat adjustment speed.
