Has anyone else reported problems with sudden unintended acceleration in a 2003 Ford Econoline E350 van?
I recently had a sudden unintended acceleration incident with my 2003
Ford Econoline E350 van. I was stopped behind traffic at a stoplight with
my foot on the brake. I had been waiting for 20 or 30 seconds with the
brake fully depressed when my van suddenly accelerated and crashed into
the vehicle ahead of me. My foot never left the brake, and, in fact, my front
tires were locked and left skid marks because I never took my foot off the
brake. Thankfully, the vehicle that I crashed into was a big bus that didn't
even move when my van hit it. I shudder to think what might have been the
outcome if I had been stopped behind a small car or at a school crossing.
That is bad. I think this is the only credible case of unintended acceleration I have ever heard of.
I have seen other reports of Ford Products on this site claiming unintended acceleration. But not specifically for a van. Report it to both Ford Customer Service and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. HTH. -Jim
Yes Sudden Unintended Acceleration is very common today with cars.. Google and you will see Toyota/Lexus lead the way. Honda admitted to SUA and recalled 175000 cars. Kia and Hyundai have the same problems. Automakers would like you to believe it is a pedal confusion.

the gas pedal and brake or so close together you had your foot on both the same thing has happened a couple time on my 08 E250
Greg, This was not a case of pedal confusion or accidentally pressing both pedals at once. The van was at a full stop, and had been stopped for 20 seconds or so, when it suddenly took off
Trolls are hired by automakers to make sure to put the blame on you. SUDDEN UNINTENDED ACCELERATION is very common with cars today. Toyota/Lexus lead the way. Google and read about it.
