The contact owns a 2006 Ford F-150. The contact noticed that the brake pedal was designed directly below the accelerator pedal. Every time he depressed the brake pedal, the accelerator pedal would also be applied. He took the vehicle to the dealer and they stated that it complied with Ford's standards; therefore, nothing could be done. The contact filed a formal complaint with the manufacturer. The current mileage was 23,700 and the failure mileage was unknown. Updated 3/18/08 updated 03/18/08

F-150 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 9,346 miles
The contact owns a 2006 Ford F-150. While driving approximately 60 mph, the contact's foot became stuck to the accelerator pedal when he attempted to apply the brake. The vehicle fails to brake properly unless the pedal is touching the floor. The dealer was unable to determine the cause of failure. When turning the steering wheel, the contact hears a squealing noise and it becomes difficult to maneuver. The dealer replaced the power steering pump, but the squealing noise is still audible. The current mileage is 37,000 and failure mileage was 9,346. The consumer stated the brake and gas pedal were designed too close together. The consumer has mistakenly hit the gas pedal when trying to brake. The master cylinder had an internal leak. The muffler had a leak. Updated 06/06/07.

- the contact owns a 2006 F150 Ford. The contact stated that when backing up, and applying the brakes it was easy to press the gas pedal at the same time. This happened three times. On one occasion he was backing up in the driveway when he bumped the garage and did some damage to the garage. The contact stated that the vehicle only had 5600 miles on it. This only happened while in reverse. This occurred when the contact was wearing work boots. The accelerator pedal and the brake pedal are too close together. Updated 03/19/07.

  • Automatic transmission

I was involved in an accident which was caused by hitting the brake pedal and the accelerator at the same time. I thought I was hitting the brake when and hit the gas at the same time causing my vehicle to rear end collide with the vehicle in front of me. Since I have been driving the vehicle this has happened several times, the gas pedal is too close in height to the brake pedal.

F-150 4WD 8-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 12,000 miles


This involves a 2006 Ford F-150 4X4 supercrew pickup with automatic transmission and adjustable pedals. On at least 7 occasions I or my uncle have experienced incidents of unintended acceleration with this pickup. All cases occurred when maneuvering the pickup at low speeds, such as parking or backing the pickup up. These unintended accelerations are caused by the foot, while on the brake pedal, coming into contact with the accelerator pedal. The gap between the brake and accelerator pedal is too close, causing a foot that is on the edge of the brake pedal to come into contact with the accelerator pedal when braking. This results in the engine revving up and causing the vehicle to lurch forward approximately 8 to 12 feet, until the brakes are engaged and the vehicle comes to a complete stop. My uncle and myself have experienced this phenomenon on my uncles 2004 Ford F-150, which I reported to the nhsta.

problem #1

Apr 282006

F-150 6-cyl

  • Manual transmission
  • 202 miles
Gas pedal to brake is a 3" lift from gas pedal than apply brakes on new F-150 w/5 speed transmission, this increases time to stop over one second. Also the accessory 12V port for phones or ipods etc doesn't shut-off when key is removed, possibly causing a vehicle fire if left unattended for any long length of time.
