    Hi

    You commented on a post I put on on Sunday after I had an accident in my Kia Sportage automatic 66 plate. I experienced a very sudden power acceleration whilst pulling into a parking space. The engine was a cold start and I’d only driven about 1/4 of a mile and come to a stop at a parking space outside my mums house. Whilst driving into the space at very low speed and my foot on the brake, it suddenly accelerated and I ended up hitting a garden wall. I am convinced I wasn’t pressing the accelerator as I had slowed right down to a couple of mph. I have contacted Kia today who have said there were no incidents of this nature recorded. I am suffering with neck pain today but more importantly when googling this type of incident I have found a number of other cases, one particularly who was doing the self same thing and I am very concerned about the safety of the car. Do you have anything you can add to your comment?

    Nicola
