Any manual petrol car will try and accelerate if you hold the brake and throttle open at the same time as you lose vaccuum from the servo.

I haven't heard of any comments made about the RX4 petrol brakes before,but if you can press the pedal and it hits a stop before the brakes lock up(ABS kicks in),then there must be a problem somewhere!.

I must admit though,I had my first drive in an RX4 today(03 plate 1.9dCi which was in for a propshaft replacement,surprise,surprise!) and I couldn't believe how bad it was to drive!.I've always fancied one myself,but not anymore.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
