make and model information
2001 - 2006
What are the defects?
There may be inadequate clearance between the engine cover and the cruise control cable, which could allow the engine to be stuck at full power when the accelerator pedal is fully or almost-fully depressed.
What are the hazards?
A throttle that is stuck fully or almost fully open may result in very high vehicle speeds and make it difficult to stop or slow the vehicle. The risk exists regardless of whether the cruise control is being used or not.
