Failure Date: 01/31/2005

I was parking my car at a mall, I put on the brake and hit brake pedal and accelerator pedal together, the accelerator almost took my car into the cement parking bollard, but I managed to stop the car 1 1/2 " from damaging the car. I have complained in the past about this problem of the height of the pedals to Chevrolet dealer with no satisfaction. "that's they way they are built, there is no defect". This situation has caused me problems in the past, almost hitting a curbstone and the like. I could be blamed for hitting a pedestrian because the accelerator takes over before the brake pedal if both are pushed simultaneously. The brake pedal should be mounted so that it will be pushed first so as to stop the car and not allow the accelerator pedal to be pushed. I got no help from the dealer. I am afraid that I could get into a serious accident because of this situation. In a great hurry, my foot struck both pedals at the same time. The brake pedal should be high enough to take over. I have had the brakes checked regularly, I keep new tires on my car. My car always passes inspection. I drive a 1999 Chevrolet Venture. I bought it at clay Chevrolet on September 15, 2002, used with 33963 miles on the odometer. It now has 66650 miles.

I have a 2004 (bought new) chevy van. We stopped on day and the back wheel was smoking. We called the dealer and took it in to be checked and they told us that the back brakes have never been attached. We were running only on front brakes. We just came back from a trip and to think we could have been killed. I was furious that such a thing could happen. They did attach the back brakes and I feel that since we were running on only front brakes, that the front brakes should be replaced by them.
