About 30 Car Care World Expo attendees gathered early this morning to discuss sudden acceleration of vehicles, which has caused scores of fatal accidents and has been a source of contention and controversy in the industry for years.
The Jeep Cherokee 'Sudden Acceleration' Issue Roundtable Discussion was a late addition to the International Carwash Association's (ICA) schedule of events following a fatal accident at a Connecticut carwash.
ICA General Council, Bruce Kramer moderated the roundtable event and vocalized the ICA's desire to gather relevant information about "sudden unintended acceleration" in order to determine the association's next course of action.
Several carwash owners and operators shared stories regarding Jeep acceleration and their attempts to curtail the problems, including written policies, driver training and general caution when servicing Jeep Grand Cherokees.
