There have been no crashes with this vehicle. The problem has existed approximately 1 year. The gas pedal sticks. I start the van, put it in drive and press the pedal to go, but the vehicle does not move and the pedal feels like an emergency brake (I can not push it at all - it will not move). I usually put it back in park, press the pedal really hard or pump the pedal several times and once the pedal seems to work, I place it back into drive.
