Don't rush to your dealer. I had my car in yesterday to have four tires mounted and oil and filter. Asked about the pedal recall and they didn't have a clue!!!! I told them they should montior the internet boards!!!!

How about they should either watch the news or read a paper - it made both a couple of days ago...

It's not officially out yet...

I was part of the NTHSA investigation...
Many photos...
Many phone calls...
Many E-mails...

It happened to me in my car... :eek: Scared the crap out of me!!!

I will let you guys know as soon as Ford has released the fix...

I fixed my car that night myself!!!

No way I was waiting for Ford to correct a safety issue on my car that I could correct myself.

Imagine running down the road at 60...
Go full throttle to pass...
Throttle sticks to floor in a 400 horse powered car!!!

Push clutch in(if you are smart enough)...
Engine bounces off rev limiter repeatedly...
So you turn the ignition off... to protect engine...
Now you are rolling 60........ with a 275/40/17 fatty of a tire and no power steering assist!!!
So you look for the side of the road to pull off...

HELLO!!!
No Power Brakes either!!!!( NO Hydroboost!!!)

Yeah... Nice!!!

Fortunately It happened in a parking lot to me :rolleyes:

I trimmed my carpet that night upon arriving home.

Be safe out there!!! :thumbsup:
