Sudden vehicle acceleration is nothing new

The Argus-Press reports in 1987:

Since 1978 [the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration] has investigated and in some cases is still studying sudden acceleration reports in GM, Nissan, Audi, Toyota, Honda, Chrysler, Renault, Ford, Volvo, Mitsubishi and Mercedes-Benz cars. It has received reports of sudden acceleration in nearly every make of car.

The most likely cause of "runaway" vehicles? Pedal confusion.
