I Had The Accelerator Pedal All The Way To The Floor While Passing Another Car. After Passing, The Accelerator Was Stuck At Full Throttle. I Tried Pressing The Brakes, And That Didn’t Work. I Tried To Put It In Neutral, And I Accidently Put It In Either Park Or Reverse And Then The Tires Squealed. I Was Finally Able To Get To The Side Of The Road (avoiding Running Into A Schoolbus), And Put It In Park And Put The Emergency Brake On. The Pedal Was Still All The Way Down At Full Throttle. I Reached Down With My Hand And Pulled The Accelerator Up To ‘unstick’ It. I Do Not Believe That The Floor Mat Had Anything To Do With This, Or That A Floor Mat Is Capable Of Holding The Pedal All The Way Down At Full Throttle. The ford Dealer Is Currently Investigating The Problem, But After 1.5 Days They Say That They Can’t Find Anything. But, The ford Dealer Manager Has The Identical Truck, And Said That This Happened To Him Also, But He Just Thought It Was The Floor Mat. I Told Him To Demonstrate How That Could Happen, And I Think He Will Tomorrow If They Do Not Find Anything Wrong With The vehicle. He Also Said That He Doesn’t Know What To Look For As Far As The ‘sudden Acceleration’ Complaint. *ak

My Gas Pedal Stuck. I Had Just Quit Using My Cruise Control As I Approached A Junction At The Freeway. Then Rounded The Bend, My Truck Just Sped Up. I Tapped The Brakes To Make Sure The Cruise Control Was Disingaged. The Truck Surged Forward Again, Although This Time It Really Took Off Like I Had Mashed The Gas Pedal Full Force.
