Unintended or Sudden Acceleration

Drivers of certain vehicles have reported sudden unintended acceleration.
Some of these have been when starting the vehicles, and others have been
reported after the vehicles were already at cruising speeds.
Possible causes of unintended acceleration include cruise control malfunction,
throttle malfunction, and pedal misapplication. For example, the gas pedal
and brake were placed in an unusual position for American drivers in certain
Audi vehicles in the 1980s. It was actually possible to press the gas
pedal and move the car forward while applying the brake. In other vehicles,
cruise control problems have been found. Vehicles have also been found
with throttles stuck in the open position after accidents.
