I was on my way to work today and was getting on the highway. When I went to let off the gas the pedel was stuck to the floor....I did not get the car turned off untill almost 100 miles per hour....then, at that speed with no power brakes and steering...I almost slamed into the four cars ahead of me..( I missed them by just a few feet)..with the E-break on and pushing as hard as I could on the brakes I managed to stop the vehicle about 1500' down the road. Upon investigating the car I found the reason for the stuck throttle was that the pedel had stuck under the edge of the carpet by the pedel (bottom). I could have been killed and the wife might not have thought quick enough to know what to do and my kids could have been in the car. I know for sure it would have taken alot longer for her to stop than me. Ford needs to look into this before someone gets killed. The carpet should be updated and the carpet should be replaced with better fit in the gas/brake/clutch area. This is extreamly dangerous because most these cars put down 380 hp at the wheels!
