while driving on us378 between saluda and lexington, sc, as i drove uphill on an undivided highway, the vehicle speed began to increase, reaching over 85 miles per hour with my foot off the accelerator. i braked back to about 25 miles per hour, but when i released the brake, the vehicle again sped to over 80 mph. i pulled over and tried to place the vehicle in park, but the engine raced. i turned it off, but it continued to run, apparently "dieseling" for several seconds. i restarted the vehicle and made it to the dealer by riding the brake and driving in the lowest gear. i sincerely believe that had my wife or teenage son who recently started driving been behind the wheel they would have completely lost control. i was fortunate that the brakes had been replaced about a month earlier and managed to hold the vehicle, though it required both feet and most of my 220 pounds on the brake. the dealer said that a cable had broken causing the throttle to stick. i have heard similar stories about this happening to this same model vehicle. it is inexcusable that the throttle should suddenly stick with no warning, especially at whatever setting it is at when the cable breaks. at the least, the throttle should return to normal idle if the cable breaks. this is extremely dangerous, and, in my opinion, warrants a modification to prevent this highly dangerous situation before fatalities occur. had the throttle stuck at a higher setting, i could not have controlled the vehicle or wouldn't have had time to react. *ak

traveling on i 95 south in the city of jacksonville fl - gas pedal stuck while at a speed of 65 and began increasing, it was necessary to use brake with all the force that was possible to control the car - it was at least 2 miles until we could exit the freeway - this was downtown and in an area of construction over a new bridge - there was not the opportunity to leave the road, place the car in neutral or do anything but ride the brakes until we could exit, west side dodge in jacksonville examined the car the morning of 9/17 and found a plastic cap that was used to cover a sensor had not been discarded and had found its' way to the linkage. we are asking the dealer here in south carolina to replace the roters and pads - is there anything else that i should be concerned with? thank you for your time and concern. sue and joe feutz "fights"*ak
