There is a serious flaw/design with the way the bar is attached to the brake pedal, also the brake pedal pad is way too small.when I am driving and I need to brake my foot hits the metal bar that supports the brake pedal, which makes it very uncomfortable to stop.on numerous occasions I almost hit the car in front of me due to this flaw.the design was very poorly planned, the bar is also attached to the right outside of the brake pedal in which other times when moving foot from gas pedal to brake your foot can also be blocked from getting to the brake pedal due to the bar that supports the brake pedal.

There is a serious design flaw/safety hazard with the way the bar attached to the brake pedal is structured. When the vehicle is in motion and I need to brake, the tip of my shoe makes contact with the skinny metal bar attached to the brake pedal. In other words, the only way to brake is to bend my shoe far enough for it to make contact with the brake pedal. This causes very uneven, jerky and erratic braking. In many cases, I have nearly rear-ended the vehicle in front of me because my shoe is not flexible enough to make fast contact with the brake pedal. I have several pictures which clearly show this design flaw.
