While traveling at 40+ mph I attempted to accelerate by pressing the accelerator pedal all the way, the Dodge Charger did not react and kept accelerating at the normal rate before I pressed the accelerator. Since it was not reacting to my input, I took my foot completely off the accelerator but the vehicle kept accelerating at a constant rate. Then after two seconds, the vehicle accelerated at full throttle, and continued to speed up at full throttle. Brakes were pressed but seemed to have zero effect on the vehicle's uncontrolled acceleration. Finally I decided to pull over to shift into neutral and it continue to accelerate. I then shifted into park and pressed the emergency brakes while the engine was still accelerating. First time this has happened and is extremely unsafe, luckily, no car was in front of me and I had time to pull the car over before I came to the upcoming red light/intersection.

This is now the third time the vehicle has stalled while in gear. Galeana in ft myers has serviced the vehicle after every incident. We have been out of a vehicle for an accumulative of over thirty days, had to pay for rentals, taxes, gas to get to and from the dealer and bogus repair costs. The first service charge was that of 500 hundred dollars, which the vehicle stalled a few days later and the techs said the service they had done would not have fixed the stalling!!"??what?". they then replaced the relay fuse worth fifteen dollars the 2nd time it was serviced, the vehicle stalled two days after having it back and we were on our way to the hospital in the vehicle! I need this documented because this time Dodge corporate responded in less than twelve hours to galeana to have the car serviced and a main wire replaced and it hasnt stalled since, but now I want reimburse!!!

When in gear and vehicle is moving, reverse and drive, the vehicle will sieze, causing loss of steering and speed. While this vehicles VIN number is not recognized on the recall list, we have had several recall problems with the vehicle which Dodge did except responsibilty for by paying the repair cost. I want to document that 3 body shops including a certified Dodge dealer cannot diagnose this vehicles seizing problem. This is the fourth time it is going into the shop for seizing while in gear. If someone is injured in this vehicle when it malfunctions I hold Dodge Jeep and Chrysler fully labial for negligence and possible conspiracy of current knowledge of vehicles with faulty equipment and failure to document all such vehicles by leaving their VIN numbers off the recall forms.

The 2007 Dodge Charger seized while in gear; loss of control and speed; locked steering wheel, no acceleration, while moving at 3mph in reverse once and while merging onto I-75 @ ~8mph two other times all within 5 weeks of each other but with no indicator warning dash lights illuminating.neither of the auto mechanics could find a problem.the vehicle hasn't seized up, but the vehicle's check engine light and electronic throttle control indicator warning lights came on last week.the Dodge Charger manual says if the electronic throttle control light comes on, to discontinue use of the vehicle until an authorized dealer can evaluate the problem.July 7th 2014 the vehicle went to a certified dealer to be diagnosed. They said they couldn't find a reason for the lights being on.sure enough they ran me up a 900 dollar bill consisting of the following repairs:filter TR 21170001/sealer no 01081003/fluid atf 01081018/antifreez 01081004/connector 09004009. I was told by the service manager these were the repairs needed: Water outlet housing/transmission hydrolic service w/ programming/air filter/ fuel system cleaning we picked the vehicle up July 10th 2014 from dealership, drove it directly home.my girlfriend drove the vehicle 30 miles to work July 12th 2014, after an 8 hour shift she started the Dodge Charger letting it run idle for 5 minutes before exiting the parking lot.the vehicle was brought to a stop before entering the interstate. When she tried to accelerate the vehicle did not move or make a revving sound, the steering wheel was locked tight but hot air was continuing to blow from vents.no indicator lights were present before during or after the event. The vehicle hadn't physically acted up since the first 3 times 7 months ago, so we immediately called the dealer and she drove it directly there.

While traveling at 40+ mph I attempted to accelerate by pressing the accelerator pedal all the way, the Dodge Charger rt(5.7L V8) did not react and kept accelerating at the normal rate before I pressed the accelerator. Since it was not reacting to my input, I took my foot completely off the accelerator but the vehicle kept accelerating at a constant rate. Then after two seconds, the vehicle accelerated at full throttle, in automatic, downshifted, and continued to speed up at full throttle. Brakes were pressed but seemed to have zero effect on the vehicle's uncontrolled acceleration. Finally I decided to shift into neutral and the engine resumed normal operation. I then shifted into drive again from neutral, and operation of the vehicle resumed to normal. First time this has happened and is extremely unsafe, luckily, no car was in front of me and I had time to control the car before I came to the upcoming red light/intersection.

While driving to work the instrument panel gauges and warning lights began to go haywire. The gauges dropped to 0 and the warning lights and bells began to flicker and ring. The fan/heater began fluctuating up and down as well. Early on, this would occur intermittently. Now it is more consistent. It is occurring daily-- more so in the early morning hours. It is quite scary because you have no idea what will happen next. I acquired a video of this event. It can be found at: www.youtube.com/watch?V=qdz-uczi2de.

After filling up at a gas station, the car started stuttering and later on stalled at a red light in the city. Has become this way only after filling up the fuel tank completely, it will stutter and sometimes stall at complete stops. I have stopped from filling up completely to avoid this problem for approximately two years now. It is a 2007 Dodge Charger rt rwd.
