accelerator cable/wire snapped in half without warning.. the gas pedal went straight to the floor. luckily, i was not on the freeway doing 70mph since there was absolutely no control of my vehicle after the cable broke. the part was replaced, however, the car only had 25,011 miles on it. the car is only 2001 acura which has been maintained with safety maintenance checks every 7,500 miles. however, there is no check on the automotive check list for accelerator cable. as a matter of fact, this is not suppose to happen at all. the acura dealer did not even carry the part in their stock. how could this freaky breakage occur? why was the accelerator faulty?*ak

since the second day of having my car, my car has been continuously plagued with problems. i have taken my car in for repair over 10 times for various and sometimes repeating problems. this all has occurred within a three year period. i have never had a vehicle that has had so many problems. some of the problems have been so severe that i no longer feel safe driving my car. one of these problems was my transmission spontaneously downshifting from 5th gear to 2nd gear at highway speeds. this caused a tremendous decrease of speed. had someone been in back of me, i would have been seriously injured. the transmission was replaced, but it continues to act spontaneously. after making complaints directly to acura of america, i feel snubbed by them in that they have not sought to assist me other than warranty repairs.

upon keyless ignition, engine continues to race even though gas pedal is not depressed. when applying brakes, engine continues to accelerate, and gas pedal seems to stick even after foot is removed from gas pedal and placed on brake pedal. this happens intermittently without any warning, and speed doesn't seem to come into play. i am afraid to drive this car with this condition. it has happened when i have other people in the car, and now they refuse to drive with me for fear that i am not going to be able to stop. it happened 4 times last thursday evening 9/1/11 on the nj turnpike going north after the toll at 16w going west to route 3, past the meadowlands. traffic was heavy because of an nfl game, and was moving very slowly (no more than 20 miles an hour). when gas pedal was released to reduce speed, the engine was still accelerating, even after the brake was depressed. i drove defensively making sure that i stood well behind the car in front of me to allow enough of distance between it and me to stop. i have owned other acura vehicles and have never experienced this problem. it is hazardous to drive this car - both to the driver and other cars on the road. i had it towed to the dealership where it will soon be checked by the manufacturer. i had recorded this situation when i brought the car in for service on 6/20/11, and the manufacturer could not find anything wrong. in retrospect, it seems that sometime when i was going from one speed to another, the transition to the higher speed was not smooth. note, i never use cruise control, nor the manual shifting. updated 11/17/11 *tr
