Leawood, KS

in passing a vehicle the accelerator cable broke and the throttle jammed in the full on position. this caused the car to dramatically increase speed on a busy highway. i shifted the car into neutral, and the engine raced to over 7000 rpm. i then had to turn off the engine to stop the racing. the automatic gas cut off did not appear to work. i ended up in the grassy mediam to avoid hitting cars as i had little braking and steering power. upon restarting the car it appeared to work and i was able to get almost home when it happened again. the pedal was full open and when i shut the car off, the automatic cut off apparently worked as the car wouldn't start again. it was towed to a service station. i am told the cable was seriously frayed which caused it to jam in the open position. i was lucky to have not had an accident and was grateful my daughter or wife were not driving.

cable connecting gas pedal to engine frayed and stuck at full throttle. brakes did not work. was traveling in rush hour traffic at full speed two times. the first time repeated stomping on the gas pedal and brake pedal and throwing the car into neutral unjammed it after a couple of minutes. the second time also in rush hour traffic these efforts did not help. i wove in and out of traffic until i got to an off ramp, and luckily was able to get through the traffic light at the intersection at the off ramp and onto a sidestreet where i put it into neutral and landed it like an airplane on a landing strip with the brakes smoking and the engine screaming and the car glided to a stop. was told the cable had unwound like a frayed piece of rope and stuck inside the cable connecting the pedal to the engine.*ak

my name is karen richey. i have a 1996 sebring convertible i pulled into a filling station and shut the car off. when i started it, it revved up and accelerated on it's own. i pressed the brakes as hard as i could but couldn't stop the car. i went through the doors of the station and finally came to a stop in the coffee machines. i was taken to the hospital. i was in florida at the time and i received a ticket for careless driving. the police officer said no matter what you have to have control of your car. there was no way to have control over the car. i had only owned this car 5 months. it shows that the car was in for a recall in aug of 2002 for throttle repair. on march 17 in savannah ga the same thing happened to a 1996 sebring converible and he hit 9 people. i have talked to the gentleman. his sebring revved up, accelerated and he couldn't get it stopped. his had also been in for recall in 2002. my car is still in the dealer ship in florida and is being repaired for the damages caused in the accident. i don't think i could ever drive this car again in fear that it will do it again and maybe cause a injury or death. *ak

Location:
Bedford, TX

driver & vehicle leaving toll plaza on the dallas north tollway, headed south towards i-635, about 6 pm on incident date. driver accelerated out of the toll booth, up to about 40-45 mph, and felt a surge in acceleration. attempted to reduce speed by taking foot from the gas pedal, but there was no reduction in speed. applied brake, but still no reduction in speed. pulled hand brake, no reduction. the accelerator seemed to be stuck or hung up. finally thought to shift into neutral, and at some point the accelerator finally "let go." was able to exit from the tollway. on 635 access road, attempted acceleration again, and again the accelerator seemed to "stick" at about 15 mph. backed off, and made way slowly to a nissan automotive dealership off 635 in north dallas. there, a service rep looked under the hood and observed the accelerator cable was badly frayed. as the car was unsafe to drive further, called for a tow and had car towed to chrysler dealer in grapevine, tx. the failure of the vehicle to decellerate on a busy and fast-moving tollway at rush hour could have been catatrophic, but due to luck or grace, there was no collision. however, the driver suffered mental and physical anguish, stress, and frank terror during the event. this car had been subject to a recall issued in august 2002, and had been repaired for the defect at the dealer in grapevine. however, the accelerator cable failed anyway. the logical conclusion is that the defect repair was also faulty, or the defect was not repaired properly. other systems in the vehicle were most likely impacted: brakes and transmission.*ak
