2008 Kia Rondo Q&A
2008 Kia Rondo Question: Has anyone had a problem with sudden acceleration?
I was driving down the road when my car suddenly accelerated without my touching the gas and I could not stop it. I ended up hitting a electrical pole. Scared me to death and I have no idea what caused this to happen. I was not accelerating at the time and then couldn't stop. Has this problem been reported previously? - jbowen53
Usually when this happens, it is due to something interfering with the gas pedal. Floor mat or other object in the drivers floor pan area. Toyota is a good example, that is what the whole deal was with that unintended acceleration recall. Incorrect floor mats. However have a tech. check everything out to see IF it might be another problem. Post the results so other will know what happened. ★★ Recall SC098 call dealer with vin to see if this repair 'was' still pending before the accident. You can also Google that recall number SC098 for more info. - pushrod
I have heard of one instance where a person had the speed control on then when pulling into a parking lot the speed control never disengaged and the car jumped the parking block and hit a wall. I would give your local dealer a call and see about recalls. - bmdouble
