No actually it is a constant hold on the throttle, even in cruise control this happens. And i doubt that every one of us that has this issue, is doing what you are saying.

As for v26278 Im not sure, but did you take it to your dealer and how long ago, I wonder if my dealer could contact yours and talk about it, because if it opened a puma case that means there is something wrong with the cars and I think they are trying to take care of it silently.
