BILLERICA, MA (WHDH) - Abe Sarraf pulled his 21-year-old son
out of the path of an out of control Jeep in Billerica, just as it
was about to hit him.
“I just heard the engine roaring,” said Khalil Sarraf, “last second
pulls me away, the mirror clipped my shoulder.”
The father and son remember standing side by side at the
Billerica Auto Auction Wednesday morning looking to buy
SUV’s.
They say, out of nowhere, the Jeep came barreling towards
them.
Khalil Sarraf says if not for his dad’s quick actions, he wouldn’t
be alive today.
Having just escaped harm, Khalil didn’t pause or take a deep
breath. Instead, he says he rushed right back in towards the
danger.
“I ran over to the driver to see what happened and then I just
saw him froze,” said Khalil. “He looked like an innocent guy, so I
just shut off the car.”
Both Khalil and his father are still pretty stunned themselves,
watching life flash before their eyes.
Watch the video above to hear more from the father and son.

(excerpts):
This is not a new issueWay back in 2006, the International Carwash
Association issued an advisory on Jeep Cherokee models based on sudden-
acceleration reports. The document doesn't recommend banning such vehicles,
but it does list five procedures to be employed when they're being cleaned for
safety reasons:
1. Handle Jeep Cherokees and Jeep Grand Cherokees with extreme caution
2. Allow only specially trained car wash employees to handle these vehicles
3. Notify all car wash employees when one of these vehicles is on the property
4. Move the vehicle using both feet - left foot on the brake and right foot on
    the accelerator
5. Instruct employees and customers to never walk in front of
     one of these vehicles

Quote:   ConsumerAffairs for a 2011 posting 
Jeeps seem to have acquired an especially fearsome reputation among car wash operators, like Dan of Palmyra, Pa.
"My family has owned and operated automatic car washes for nearly 50 years. Over the past 10 years, we have had
half a dozen incidents with Jeep Grand Cherokees accelerating out of control," Dan said in a 2011 ConsumerAffairs
posting. "Every time it has happened, our employees have maintained that the vehicle took off on them and they
could not stop it. The first few times it happened, we assumed it was driver error but not anymore. There is case after
case of this happening and nobody at Chrysler will do anything about it.

UPDATE: No charges in runaway SUV case

(excerpts):
Witnesses told police that a car wash employee went to move the SUV
forward, when the vehicle suddenly accelerated.
The employee was able to miss two parked cars before trying to slam on
the brakes to no success.
After crossing Dupuy Avenue, the SUV hit the curb, knocking the driver
out of the seat and onto the ground.
Sheriff Todd Wilson said the SUV never slowed down and continued
almost the length of a football field before slamming into the large green
power box on the north side of the courthouse.
The employee was slightly injured and required medical attention at the
hospital.
Bob Schrum, the owner of Flagstop Car Wash, said his employees are
provided a list of cars, trucks and SUVs that have been proven prone to
unintentional acceleration. In fact, he said the instances have been well
documented by the National Car Wash Association.
Schrum said about a month ago that all 120 of his employees took part in a
safety seminar provided by his insurance company, which touched on
sudden unintentional acceleration.
