Having problems with your 2006 Scion xA ?

I have a 2006 Scion Xa that tried to kill me today. SERIOUSLY. I had cruise control on and was doing 70. Turned cruise control off as I entered a mid size town and WTF the car wouldn't idle below 60mph. I tried turning the cruise control on/off multiple times and tapped the brakes. It was like cruise control was on and stuck at 60mpg. I slowed it down using the brakes with the RPMs screaming higher and higher like the engine was going to blow. STANDING on the brakes and the car was still trying

Next time that happens, like the tech said tap the gas peddle, but if your coming to traffic or a town or a stop, slow down as much as you can, throw it in neutral (as if you put it into park while still moving with speed, that could screw your transmission. Anyway, put it into neutral, turn it off, tap the gas peddle like the tech said, and then restart the car. (To be on the safe side, rather then having the car rev growing.\015\012
\015\012Yes like you said their is a TSB for this and my buddie has experienced the same problem, coincidentally while I was driving with him. What happens is when you tap the break or cruise control, the mechanism that controls the throttle cable fails to let go, so thus when you tap the peddle it kinda nudges it back. \015\012
\015\012You could say the mechanism that takes control of the throttle, sticks yes.

Scion xA has no cruise control. Cruise control is not offered as an option for 2006 xA. Where did you get it?
