Default 2004 Saab 9-3 convertible acceleration

This evening I was driving to the drugstore and accelerated after a stop and the pedal seemed to stick. I say seemed because the pedal came back but the engine continued reving. I put in neutral and it reved very fast. Somehow it stopped. I guess between hitting the brake and trying to get the pedal up (at the time I thought it was sticking) it stopped. When I got to the parking lot, I put the pedal down enough to test it and it reved up and accelerated out of control again. I was was able to get it to stop.
With the engine off, the pedal doesn't stick. Not even sticky. Any ideas? Very scary. Thanks.

Hi,

I've been doing searches for a problem with both of my saabs; 2008 and 2009 Saab XWD Aero's, and it looks like I'm having the same problem as you. Once in each car, I've accelerated to go around someone and the engine keeps on revving! I've had to hold the brake to the floor as the car was bucking like a bronco until it stopped all of a sudden. I'm calling the Saab dealer Monday; did you ever find out what it was?

Thanks so much.

Best,

Frank

Default Saab acceleration

Hi. I was told, after a thorough check by my mechanic, that nothing was found mechanically that would explain the "stuck" accelerator. While I was relieved, I was also perplexed. What now? And when will it happen again? They suggested it could have been the floor mat getting caught. I really hate not knowing but since I removed the mat, it hasn't happened again. I'm sorry I can't give you a more satisfying answer. I hope you have better luck. If possible, could you let me know what you find out? I wish you good luck.
