while traveling on the highway on a sub zero (-6 degree f) night, my car which was set at 55 mph on cruise control, accelerated on its own to 62 mph, and the throttle became stuck. braking, and pushing the appropriate buttons would not disengage the cruise control. i had to physically push the foot brake as hard as possible to force the car to a stop, and then the car was still accelerating on its own when i released the brake. after starting the car and turning it off 3 times, i finally disengaged the cruise control and made it to my destination. on the way home, without touching any cruise control features, the throttle once again became stuck and was trying to accelerate the car. today i had the car serviced, and i was informed that they had received 3 calls during the time period i was there regarding a similar situation with vehicles that contain the same or a similar engine.*ak

for the past several winters, my 1999 audi a6 2.8 quattro has had a failure in its cruise control mechanism. when ever it gets cold the cruise control often does not engage, and if it is really cold it may disengage after running for awhile even on level pavement (i.e. not undo engine strain-normal for disengagement). the major problem lies in that, at least twice, even though the cruise control has not been made to engage on prior attempts, it has engaged latter on its own, without prompting, bringing the car up to speed. case in point: one time when coming into a residential area, it suddenly engaged, and started to try and come up to highway speeds. the dealership has tried several attempts to rectify this fault, but has been unable to find a solution. i have even offered to drive my car up to their national headquarters for their engineers to look at. now audi usa, will do no more toward this effort, in what i consider a serious and possible dangerous matter. *jb
