sudden acceleration

2013 purchased new. Strange and forceful acceleration during use of cruise control so much so that I ceased to use it. The following 2 weeks, acting odd then a sudden violent acceleration while entering my garage. Was able to brake/no accident. Data recorder found no crash so I'm stuck.
NHS refused 2 appeals to reopen this issue. didn't take long before a PAID TOYOTA SHILL responded....YUP! PEDAL CONFUSION! Gotta be the driver!

This sounds like a case of pedal confusion to me. Either that or the driver has boots on that touch both pedals. Either way, I would think the owner would be dealing with Toyota and not directly with the NHTSA. Something isn't adding up here....
