yep...that is what I said. Here's my thoughts. I am a computer programmer. I think gooberment motors hired/bought out someone like me to to write a program to cause/simulate this "unintended acceleration"...just my 0.25 cents.he literally just tricked the ECU into thinking the driver gave it WOT. These results would be the same in ANY car tested like this.
Not only that but there is a litigation happy portion of society that is just waiting for an opportunity, whether real or fabricated.I'm glad I'm not the only one who's noticed this trend of complaints coming from people who shouldn't necessarily even be pumping their own fuel.
I don't know if anybody read the comments on that video, but I did and it lead me go back and take another look. The 2 minute 14 second point brings up some serious flaws in his little "experiment"...
1) the door is open (door ajar light is on)
2) "BRAKE" light is on (im assuming the parking brake)
3) they claim "we're going 20 mph" when they initiate the FORCIBLY INDUCED short circuit, but the speedo reads 0
4) the transmission is in park (the P is lit up)
5) the RPM's climb WAY to fast to actually be accelerating (which also reinforces the fact that the transmission is in park)
