The contact owns a 2006 Mercury Grand Marquis. While driving 10 mph, the vehicle lunged forward when the brakes were depressed. The failure felt as if the brake and accelerator pedals were being depressed simultaneously. The contact's wife also attempted to depress the brakes once and she struck a stop sign. There were no injuries. The vehicle has not been serviced as of yet. The current and failure mileages were 21,800. * updated 12/12/07 the consumer stated the brake pedal was designed too close to the accelerator pedal. The consumers wife hit a stop sign causing damage to the front bumper. Updated 12/12/07 updated

When applying the brakes, unwanted acceleration occurred causing the car to lunge forward. The manager of the repair department took a ride with me to see if my foot hit both the brake and the gas pedal. He acknowledged it was physically impossible. The repair dept. Could not find the cause of the problem. Nothing was done to correct the problem. It has happened again (5th time) when I had two of my grandchildren with me! I have another appointment with the dealership.

: the contact stated while depressing the brake pedal, the driver's foot made contact with both accelerator pedal and brake pedal at the same time. This dual contact resulted in unwanted acceleration on five occasions. The vehicle was inspected by the dealer who determined the brake and accelerator were operating normally.
