How many years ago did 60 minutes go on the warpath?

You'd have better luck seeing UFOs landing on the 
White House Lawn than finding the supposed
unintended acceleration that was the cause of the witchhunt

As I understand it, some people found the pedals more
closely spaced than their domestic vehicles and launched
their cars all the while believing they were on the brake.
I've heard that driving school instructors run across this behavior
now and again in pupils who freeze up when something goes 

Audi may have done something superficial at the time to
calm the owners, but no engineering problem was found
(to the best of my knowledge) that needed to be corrected.

good luck with your car
