Throttle Jamming issue
I'm curious to know if anyone else has had this problem:
I almost had an accident after pushing the throttle hard to the floor to avoid another car. I drive with my right foot on an angle - heel on the floor about half way between the brake and the accelerator pedals, and my toe pretty much against the RHS plastic sidewall.
When I pushed the pedal to the floor, my shoe jammed between the pedal and the sidewall. When I first tried to back off to avoid the car in front, nothing happened - tried harder, still nothing. Then I really jerked my foot up and it came free. Probably lost a second or more before I could brake.
Turns out, the plastic panel my shoe was sliding against has an opening at the leading edge of about a cm - possible an a/c vent. So that when the pedal is fully down, my shoe moves behind this slot.
I have big feet, but I don't think size is the issue except it may mean smaller feet are less likely to be at an angle.
This would not happen on LHD cars as there is (probably) no vent in the equivalent position.
So, check your feet and take care!
