The contact owns a 2010 Chrysler 300. While driving approximately 45 mph, the vehicle accelerated independently and the throttle warning light illuminated. The contact shut the vehicle off and restarted the vehicle, but it accelerated independently while in the park position. The vehicle was not diagnosed or repaired. The manufacturer was not notified of the failure. The approximate failure mileage was 83,000.

Vehicle was purchased from carmax. The next day after purchase I experienced jolts with accelerating or coming to a stop. It seem to worsen when the temperatures were about 30 degrees. By warming the car it would alleviate some of the problem, but still occurred. Took it to the dealership at least three times, they claim to find no issue. Once they did a PCM/tcm software update, but it did not correct the problem. I even informed to check the converter, but Chrysler failed to do it. Now here we are and the temperatures are dropping the problems is happening more frequently. It is obvious that there is some sort of transmission problem that Chrysler is failing to admit. I will be taking it to the dealership again since the problem is happening. The car only have about 35000 miles on it. My previous 2007 Chrysler 300 performed like a dream compared to the new model that I have. I wish Chrysler will step up and take responsibility, but I know that would never happen.

I was traveling North on hwy I-81 in state of Virginia with the cruise control set on 70 mph which is the speed limit. I was traveling in line with the traffic I.e., several vehicles in front of me, several vehicles behind me, and several semi-trucks on my right lane, all as a group, no one passing anyone, but in close proximity to each other, ie., the vehicle in front of me was approximately 4 to 5 vehicle spaces in front of me, the ones to my rear were approximately 2 to 3 vehicle spaces, and the semi-trucks were right in line with me one behind the others in close proximity to each other. I was stopped by a state trooper who stated that I was traveling at 85 mph in a 70 mph zone and wanted to know if there was a reason for that. I explained that I had no reason since I had my cruise control on 70 mph. He gave me a traffic citation for reckless driving. Upon my return to Kentucky, I took my vehicle in to my dealer to have the speedometer and cruise control checked. My dealer's technician could not replicate the problem. They ran a 23 point check (whatever that means) and could not find anything wrong. I believe that there is a problem between the cruise control and the speedometer. Either they are not synchronized or there is a problem with an electronic sensor or something like that. I would like somebody knowledgeable with problems of this nature to investigate to see what caused this. I will not use the cruise control again until someone guarantees to me that there is absolutely no problem here.
