    Occasionally, when I'm driving in traffic at low speed, and I lift my foot
    off the pedal, the throttle sticks on as if it was a cruise control type of
    thing. Any ideas. Just had it back at the dealer, but of course it didn't;t
    do it when the tech had the car out.....

  2. Check the throttle pedal, when it is fully depressed, you may find that
    the carpet is sometimes interferring with it!

    Not necessarily saying this is YOUR problem, but the carpet has been
    known to cause problems - it doesn't hurt to check!!

    Most cars have 'fly by wire' throttle controls nowadays. It could be a
    problem with the potentiometer that controls it.
    Basically it's similar to the volume control on a radio.
    BTW, although I have a Citroen I'm on this group 'cos they use the same
    engines. (And the Citroen group is empty).

    Had a similar problem with throttle caused by pedal sticking on corner of
    mat in footwell, not much fun in auto made it more like a mis-guided
