Gas Pedal Got Stuck

Just had my gas pedal get stuck last night. Not sure if it was the floor mat, the car, or the tune. Pretty scary though.

Happened to me once & realized it was the mat. They tend to scoot up at times on top of the medal & it keeps the gas going. Next time it happens just look down & see if it's the mat. If its not then u have a problem.

Hope it never happens again! It was in traffic so it was all I could do to weave in and out until the gas pedal came back up.

I did find a solution for the mats though. Hopefully.

I have them but the mats that I have the dealer gave them to me when I bought my car. I try to put them into the hooks but I struggle to do so. It's like if the mats aren't meant for my car Lol

These have rubber holes that you can "cut" out that match up with the posts. I just hope they stay! I think Weathertech should make these snap in.

That's scary, your sure you didn't accidently hit cruise control? I had that happen once, on 400. The only thing I can think of is that I had cc on and somehow activiated it.

Nah, it wasn't cruise, just somehow got stuck. The wife said it happened to her once too, but for now I am just going to monitor the movement of the mat.

I don't ever think to put this car in neutral. All my life (before I bought this car in May) I drove a manual Honda Accord; so, I feel like my driving brain turns off getting behind the wheel of an AT.
