I have a 2005 GTO and have had this problem too.

It's a faulty accelerator pedal sensor. I've had two replaced and haven't had the problem in months.

They've replaced the pedal sensoer on mine twice and it still hasn't fixed the problem. Its been in the shop a week now and they just called to get my security code so they could install another sofeware patch. I'm sorry to say, but this is what I have come to expect from GM products.
