This is the first time this has ever happened and it was a little scary. I've heard about cars taking off on their own and running over people, so I want to catch a problem before anything bad happens.
We live out in the country, no garage. It hasn't been that cold. I have a 2001 Honda Odyssey van. I got in it the other day, after not driving it for maybe 3-4 days. I started it up and it raced horribly. I think I even felt a tiny attempt to lunge, but it was in Park. I didn't even think to check out how fast the rpms were going, and just shut it off.
It hasn't happened again, although I've only driven the car twice since.
I don't even know if the gas pedal was stuck. All I knew is I had to turn the car off fast.
Do you think I should be concerned about this? It only happened that once and it was in Park.
Thanks for your input.
