IMHO, it's may be as simple as adjusting the throttle set screw. If you look at the throttle body, you will see a screw/bolt/whatever you'd like to call it. That's what sets the stop position when the throttle returns to 0, or idle. From what I understand, it can be difficult to get it just right, because it is touchy. Mine was set too low when I got my 05 car, but I fixed it by SLOWLY adjusting it. If you decide to adjust it, be sure to use a marker to mark the original starting position, as a point of reference. I found the throttle body set screw adjust easy, and I by no means whatsoever a mechanic. Do a search for more info on the subject; there should be plenty. Definately look into the cable issue though, as well.
