Ford Taurus and Mercury Sable Self-Acceleration Investigation Launched

Federal safety investigators have opened an investigation of "sticky accelerators" involved in the 2001, 2002, 2003, 2005, 2005 and 2006 model years Ford Taurus and Mercury Sable model lines.

Originally the investigation was limited to the 2005 and 2006 model year Taurus vehicle lines.

Apparently there are about 30 runaway complaints by owners and drivers, including one driver who complained, "Wow. The scariest thing I have ever experienced" when their vehicle blasted through an intersection at 70 mph before it could be brought under control.

Other owners have complained of self-acceleration by the Ford-built vehicles. Toyota made its own self-acceleration headlines in 2009-2010, but the number of complaints to federal safety investigators has risen steadily since the late 1980's, reports The Detroit Bureau.
