problem #1

Apr 172004

300M 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 65,097 miles
Merging onto highway pressed accelerator to floor. Car went into passing mode, car accelerated, I removed foot from pedal, throttle would not return to idle. Car kept accelerating to 90 mph. Had to use brake to stop car and shut it off. I manually returned throttle cable (it was stuck). 3 days later same problem but this time I put car in neutral and stepped on accelerator, quickly, several times and car returned to idle. I have factory installed floor mat, no obstruction under accelerator. Car has not been in accident. Emailed Chrysler they said that I should take it to certified dealer. Dealer said that the cable was defective and that it would cost over $150 to replace. No accident but very scary events
