Well, I decided I was completely sick of how dirty my car had been looking after a long road trip up Louisiana and thought a car wash was in order. Took it to the local car wash and got it vacuumed, washed, and waxed. Stopped at a red light I decided that I missed the roar the F makes. Making sure to look around for cops, saw it was clear, waited for green and punched it. Somewhere around 4th gear I noticed that the gas pedal wasn't letting up. As I took my foot off the pedal, it didn't follow my foot and the car kept going faster and faster. It immediately hit me that my pedal was stuck and it was the all weather floor mats that kept it there. I shot my hand down and start yanking on the mat as I watched my car hit 120 in a 35 heading straight for a cargo truck and a school bus driving side by side. After what seemed like 10 minutes I freed the mat and was able to start downshifting and easing on my brake.
Thank god I realized what had happened or I know I would not be here right now. Seems like the car wash attendants didn't clip the mats back to the floor and left them further to the pedals then they should have been.
I read that article earlier in the week and laughed at what kind of idiot that would happen to.......guess that idiot was me
Glad it turned out okay. I know you mentioned the all-weather mats, and just want to confirm that the recall doesn't apply to regular mats in the F. Am I correct?
