ES 350

  • 25,000 miles


The floor mats on my Lexus 350 caused the accelerator to stick in a depressed position resulting in a high rate of speed. Fortunately for me I was able to figure it out. For a moment I had the impression that I did not have breaks. This must get fixed or there will be deaths. The reason for this is due to a number of factors. 1) the floor mat was not fastened to the car using the clips. I had just washed the car and I was unable to fasten the floor mats into the clips. The design of the clips is poor. 2) the floor mat slid forward. 3) when the floormat slid forward it caused a situation that when the accelerator is depressed the accelerator gets caught under the leading edge of the floor mat. You cannot lift the accelerator up because the floor mat is preventing it from coming up. 3) the floor mat has to be pulled away from the accelerator in order that the accelerator is released. 4) the design of the accelerator pedal is to close to the top of the floor mat. The accelerator pedal must be replaced with a pedal that is further away from the floor mats. The can be accomplished by making the pedal smaller. My wife is currently driving this car in tx. I am in mn. I've told her to be careful to make sure the floor mats are properly fastened. I am 50 years old and driven numerous cars. This Lexus is the best car I have ever drive but this design flaw will kill people if it's not fixed. Feel free to call me at: Thank you,
