Here is a link to a web page that a fellow car owner has put into words what happened when the car experiencing failing brakes and simultaneously acceleration which then made the car lurch forward .- causing an accident http://www.carcomplaints.com/Hyundai/XG350/2004/brakes/sudden_brake_failure.shtm- l#1
Here is another link to problems with the ACCELERATOR POSITION SENSOR and VEHICLE SPEED CONTROL: ELECTRONIC THROTTLE SYSTEM (ETS)

Read your post and went back to earlier researched pages hope this helps you figure out he problem. I don't know why no recall on the this particular model. I blame it on our politicians for not having a better system to make cars become recalled that are a danger to the consumer that bought them. After doing some research on just this car for about an hour I know I don't want a used one, and will advise the actual owner I am researching for , to junk hers. Good luck from me to you.
I hope you make Hyundai pay for their continued laziness of marketing a dangerous product and not fixing the problem once they knew it was a problem. All these incidents surely shows there is a problem with their product.

Note: You may want to remove the mirror from the windshield first to make the following steps easier. It's not necessary, but it's up to you. If so, pry off the plastic cover at the top of the mirror stalk, disconnect the power cord, and then pull the mirror downwards and parallel to the windshield to remove it.
Method 1: On the back side of the mirror below the ball joint, there is a small round cover. Insert a sharp blade tip at the top of the cover and carefully pry it out. Underneath is the tip of the tension screw. It has a slot in the end of it that can be tightened with a small flat-blade screwdriver. Carefully replace the cover, inserting the bottom tab first, then snap in the top. If the mirror is still not tight enough, go to Method 2.
Method 2: Carefully pry off the rim bezel of the mirror, starting in the middle of the seam on the bottom, working your way around the edge. The bezel will pop off when you get past one of the ends. I used a pair of heavy guitar picks to keep the latches from snapping back into place as I progressed. Once the bezel falls off, the mirror assembly will dangle from the power cord. The Phillips tension screw is in the center bottom of the case; tighten it to suit, and make certain that the four bracket mounting screws around it are all tight, too. Then place the mirror assembly back in place and snap the bezel back into place, starting at the top.

Thank you so much for the reply in great details. I haven't been checking this forum lately. In case I break anything I will just buy an after market cheap mirror.

Are any of your door switches or trunk switches (that control the light turning on and off) broken? They are black and in the door jam for the doors and for the engine it is on the left when you open the hood I think the trunk is the same. They all look alike, black rubber and should feel like pushing a button when you press it. You will be able to tell immediately if they are broken by pushing in on them. You should have a light go of when you push it, if not it is broken. Very easy to replace these yourself, just held in with two screws. Do not loose the screws! Anyway, if it is broken it stays on and runs down the battery, and if all or a couple are broken, that would take a lot of juice out of the battery. If you have turned your switch in the car for the light to off, because it was staying on, this would be the reason why. If the driver's door switch is broken then the ring of light around where you put your key in will be off too and you will have trouble with your car alarm, since the car thinks the door is always open. Hope this helps!

Am having the same problem as Canopus with my 2003 xg350L -- car will start lurching forward while sitting in gear with foot brakes applied, also does this while in reverse. Also will be going down the road and will feel a tremble under the car at random times. Codes showed throttle control censor which was changed did'nt change a thing. Mechanics can't seem to find the problem. Any feedback concerning this problem would be much appreciated.
