Complaint - Power Train

UPON ACCELERATION TO ENTER HIGHWAY VEHICLE CONTINUED TO ACCELERATE AS THO THE THROTTLE WAS TO THE FLOOR. ALMOST REAR ENDED CAR IN FRONT OF ME. HAD TO APPLY BRAKES AND TURN ON CAUTION LIGHTS AND PULL OVER. ENGINE SEEMED AS THO IT WAS GOING TO BLOW UP. VERY SCARY. UPON FURTHER INSPECTION IT SEEMS AS THO DODGE/CHRYSLER RUSHED PRODUCTION OF THE INTAKE COMPONENTS TO GET CARS TO SHOW ROOM IN ALL 08 WITH THESE INTAKES. CHRYSLER LATER FIXED THE PROBLEM IN ALL FUTURE VEHICLES. PROBLEM LIES IN CHEAP COMPONENTS IN THE RUNNER FLAP ASSEMBLY ON THE INTAKE MANIFOLD. PROBLEM THROWS CODE P2008 AND CODE P2017. FLAP STICKS OPEN AND INCREASES HORSEPOWER WITHOUT INTENT OF DRIVER. CHRYSLER KNOWS ABOUT THIS PROBLEM BECAUSE THEY FUXED IT IN FUTURE CARS. I AM SURE ALL OF THESE CARS HAVE THIS FAULTY COMPONENT AND THEREFORE; DEPENDING ON HOW AND WHERE IT FAILS IT CAN BE EXTREMELY DANGEROUS.
