Accelerator pedal gets stuck on Chrysler 300 C and car keeps on accelerating. Even when slamming the brakes the car keeps accelerating. This is a major safety problem. We called Chrysler to report the incident and there is no recall or solution proposed. This is a significant problem since the car has a 5.7 liter engine and acceleration can be very forceful. People are going to be hurt because of this. There was a recall for similar problem on other vehicles from the Chrysler company but not for that vehicle.

I had this happen several times after I would fill up with gas. At about 30mph or when I would come to a stop and then try to accellerate the car would stall and cut off. Would then try and restart the car after several attempts it would finially restart. Sometimes when I would reach speeds of 55mph it would cut off and I would have to steer with the best of my ability to pull to the side of the highway. Finially I just took it to the Chrysler dealer and had them put a new evap canister on it and new trottle something on it 600+ dollars.

After filling up at the gas station the car stalled 3-4 times before beginning to surge. After several minutes of stalling/surging, it was fine. It does it every time the car is filled now.

I filled the tank and the vehcile stalled several times the next few miles. Especially after right turns, like when merging onto freeways. This happens now every time when I fill the tank. Very dangerous. From web forums I understand gas is getting sucked into the evap system because a check valve at the gas-filler neck doesn't work. What a pain! I replaced the evap solenoid, that didn't help...the problem at the gas tank filler-neck check valve.

The contact owns a 2005 Chrysler 300C. The contact stated that while driving 75 mph, the accelerator pedal fractured. The contact had to manually depress the accelerator with his left hand and maneuver the vehicle to safety simultaneously. The manufacturer was notified of the failure but offered no assistance. The vehicle was not repaired. The failure and current mileage was 76,000.

The gas pedal accelerates and sticks so you lose control off the speed. It is very unsafe for children or for anybody to be in the car.
