Contact ford. it can be any number of things that caused that. From driver error to tranny issues to stuck throttle.

yea i agree there, get it back to the dealer and atleast have them look at it. that is really bad with an auto trans especially if it does it some time when you are in traffic.
never heard of this happening before but maybe the dealers have.

i would rather push my Ford than drive your Chevy !

It could be a sticking throttle plate or accelerator cable.
I read somewhere that there was a TSB for the cable - not sure what years, though.
The throttle plate could be carbon fouled. How long have you had the car & what octane fuel do you use?
