Thanks for posting

If the car is still at the shop call them and tell them to check the "ETCS" fuse in the fuse box under the hood, this is the "electronic throttle control system" fuse, when this fuse blows, which is common when the battery is either replaced or charged, the car will not accelerate, let then know as soon as you can before they charge you a lot of money for something else, they need to check that fuse first.
