    • What's your point? Punch in different auto makers and you will get some sort of recall on them for their products. It is common in the auto industry.

        Summary:
        THE ACCELERATOR AND BRAKE ARE SO CLOSE TOGETHER ON MY 2008 FORD F150 THAT I HAVE
        ON OCCASION ACCIDENTLY PRESSED BOTH THE ACCELERATOR AND BRAKE PEDALS AT THE SAME
        TIME WHILE BRAKING. THE FIRST TIME IT HAPPENED I DID NOT KNOW WHAT WAS HAPPENING. THE
        ENGINE WAS REVVING UP AS I WAS APPLYING THE BRAKE, SO I APPLIED THE BRAKE HARDER AND
        THE ENGINE CONTINUED TO REV HIGHER UNTIL THE TRUCK LURCHED FORWARD. THIS CAUGHT ME
        BY SUPRISE AND MY FOOT CAME OFF THE BRAKE AND THE ENGINE REVVED DOWN. I REALIZED
        THAT MY FOOT HAD BEEN ON THE ACCELERATOR THE SAME TIME IT WAS ON THE BRAKE. SINCE
        THAT FIRST TIME, I KNOW THAT IF THE ENGINE STARTS REVVING WHILE I AM APPLYING THE BRAKE
        THAT I HAVE MY FOOT ON BOTH AND CAN ANGLE MY FOOT TO THE LEFT TO REMOVE IT FROM THE
        ACCELERATOR WHILE STILL KEEPING MY FOOT ON THE BRAKE. EVEN SO, ONE TIME I JUST MISSED
        HITTING THE CAR IN FRONT OF ME WHILE "STOPPING". THS SEEMS TO ME TO BE A DANGEROUS
        DESIGN. WHEN THE ENGINE BEGINS REVVING FOR "NO APPARENT REASON" ONE TENDS TO PANIC
        AND STEPS HARDER ON THE BRAKE WHICH MAKES THE PROBLEM WORSE. I THINK THERE NEEDS
        TO BE A RECALL ON THIS PROBLEM.
