NEVER,NEVER,EVER rely on crossing your fingers when it comes to the life or death of you or an innocent by-stander!!!!! .......You ABSOLUTELY MUST take your car to a repair shop NOW.

It does matter, might be a normal function of the car . While in cruise control you can press the brakes then press the accelerator. The car might be try to get her to the speed she was at.

If you hit off or cancel and it still happens I would take it in

I think they would know if their car was acting normal; they said "Hit the brakes and it accelerates"

I have had a couple cars accelerate On me after braking and reapplication of the Excelerator. I'm just saying it could be operator Error. I've never herd or a car doing what the person Described. But I guess it is possible.

to: Martman .....I was is no way upset with your question....I was upset with someone trying to give Do IT Yourself fix-er-up suggestions to someone who was obviously not a d.i.y. fixer upper type person....You obviously knew how to drive your car & use the brakes......I was very concerned that you might ; however, postpone repairs.
