    People are still claiming their car is experiencing "unintended accelleration" after getting their car fixed. And apparently they still don't understand how to put the car in neutral. Apparently all they do is press the breaks, which they say don't engage, but they still don't put em in neutral:smack:. I'm so sick of this crap.

    Well, hopefully finding the answer will come sooner rather than later. Edmunds.com just put up a 1 million dollar prize to the person who can find what's causeing this phenomenon to happen. Some say floor mats, some say accelerator pedal, still other's say it's the electronics. To settle the dispute, Edmunds is offering the prize money to elicit a "crowd sourced" solution, one that emerges by inviting large numbers of people to think about it.
