While applying my brakes at a stop sign, the car went into a malfunction, causing the car to involuntarily accelerate. putting both feet on the brake did not slow it down. Car was reving at a high speed on to incoming traffic. I needed to crash into something in order to stop the car. Terrifying. Everything in this car is electronicly controled. Brakes, gas, etc.
Car Review: 2003 Jaguar S-Type

I experienced involuntry acceleration in my 2003 jag s/type. When I went to apply the brake at a stop sign, the car accelerated at a high speed on to traffic. With both feet on the brake the car continued out of control. You could hear the car reving. in order to avoid hitting others I steered the car toward a high curb hoping this would stop the car. The car incurred damage to the rt. front wheel/tire and the undercarriage of the car. This did stop the rpm but did not stop the damage to my nerves. I will never drive a Jag. again. This is a safety issue that needs to be addressed by Jaguar. I am not the only one that has experienced this terrifying incident.I contacted the NHTS administration and they told me that they have had similar complaints. Be Careful...don't buy a jag.
