I read the same item about pressing the brake while pressing the the accelerator. The article I read states that Hyundai put in a switch on the break pedal to cut off gas supply to the engine if you press the break while accelerating. Has to do with the problem Toyota had with run away cars.
I read that the feds will be making this manditory on all cars.
Hyundai just beat them to it.
I don't understand why Hyundai doesn't make this info available to there dealerships so they can pass it on to their customers.
It could save someones life.
By the way, I started driving with one foot and the problem went away.
Thanks again for your reply.

Just drove my 2011 sonata off the lot 4 days ago, purchased used with 77K on the odometer, no problems until I filled the tank and drove 500ft and parked and shut down the engine waiting for my brother for 5mins. Tried to start and the starter did as it should but the engine just sputtered enough to disengage the started just reaching 1K on the tack. Tried many many times and same response. Still sitting on Kroger parking lot. Any one else have a similar problem?
