http://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/video-lauri-ulvesta...... Lauri Ulvestad survives her KIA Sorento's accelerator malfunctioning and being unable to stop her car.She pulled over to the shoulder, and a trooper disconnected the Sorrento’s battery to ensure it wouldn’t start up again, the newspaper said.Ulvestad was reunited with Brieg’s on ABC’s “Good Morning America,” saying that “if it wasn’t for her, I wouldn’t be here.”Kia Motors America Inc. released a statement calling Ulvestad’s wild ride an “isolated incident...”She makes the exact same claims some Toyota owners made. Rowing through the gears did nothing. Brake to the floor nothing. Emergency brake all the way on and nothing.Only after she reached down with her hands (brave act at 120 MPH) and physically lifted the stuck gas pedal and pushed down at the same time on the brake did the out of control Kia stop.Ya I know, NASA, research, studied, etc. etc. etc. but here is another case, exact same situation - another car maker. My first thought - any common electronics or lines of code.I'm starting to really dislike push button ignitions and electronic throttles.
