The cruise control on this car has been recalled to fix a problem of accelerating when the cruise control is activated, and unable to control speed properly. If this is not be your problem, it could be something as simple as your carpet pad hitting the gas pedal, or something more serious. I recommend having your cruise control inspected by a reputable mechanic before you drive your car again.
