It's a JGC in this video ?

Have a look in this video posted in the main italian news site: it shows a US TV Newsmagazine with a car running at 120 mph with blocked accelerator at full throttle.
In the last frames it appears to be a JGC, but I'm not sure. The movie is in English and I'm not been able if the speech is more clear. Do you recognize the car ?

Its one of those small GM SUVs. Looks a lot like a WK2 rear from a glance.

I agree with you, I have seen this on news also, it was a Kia Sorrento. Kia was viewing this as an isolated incident

120 mph, one hand on the wheel, the other with the phone in her ear runs over a tire tread and still maintains control.

Thank goodness there where no Mooses around

Re: It's a JGC in this video ?

All the lady had to do was lift up on the accelerator pedal as it was stuck down. Basically just get your toe under it and lift it up. That is what she eventually did and she still had the emergency break on so she then came to a very sudden stop. Moral of the story - keep the interior of your vehicle clean, especially the driver's floor to prevent things from jamming the accelerator including making sure the floor mat is in position and secured...

Re: It's a JGC in this video ?

Seriously, does anyone know what to do if their accelerator sticks?????? The toyota people are idiots and this lady doenst help..... PUT IT IN N AND SHUT THE CAR OFF ..... WHO CARES if the motor is damaged, you wont have a chance of killing me, my son, or yourself/family....


Really all of these accelerators sticking accidents have been because people go in to panic mode, dont think and dont now how to handle the situation.

Re: It's a JGC in this video ?

^the news report said that all "normal" stopping actions were taken and that the vehicle would not come out of gear nor turn off, etc.

Props to her, though. Pretty good driving and handling given the situation.

Police had her hook her foot under the pedal and pull up. Good thing it worked!

Re: It's a JGC in this video ?

FYI... No Jeep & No Italy,

It was a 2011 Kia Sorrento with a stuck accelerator on I-35 in Missouri a few days ago.
It ended fine according to the news report.
The story said the woman driver while on the phone with 911, managed to keep it under control at over 100mph, until the Sorrento shut-down.
