On two occasions, I have rear-ended someone due to what I believe is a faulty design in the position of the brake pedal in relationship to the accelerator pedal in my 2004 Jeep Wrangler unlimited. In instances where I had to stop suddenly therefore applying extreme pressure to the brake pedal, the brake pedal descended below the accelerator and the right side of my foot came in contact with the accelerator causing the accelerator to be depressed at the same time. I would have had adequate stopping distance in both instances had the accelerator not caused me to be pushed into the car in front of me.

Failure Date: 09/11/2005

I was involved in an accident on 9/11/05. I stepped on the brake in a hard manor, but since the brake is very close to the gas pedal, my foot was half on the gas and half on the brake. The Jeep took off as I applied more pressure. I could not control the Jeep, I slammed into a wood fence, then into a parked car. Causing major damage. This is very poor design by Chrysler and dangerous, luckily no one was hurt. Check the distance between the gas and brake pedal.

Gas pedal and brake pedal to close to one another. While driving my vehicle this weekend. My shoe got stuck between the gas and brake pedal, causing the vehicle to accelerate. I lost control of the vehicle, was unable to stop and hit another parked vehicle causing over $3600 in repairs to the parked car, the estimated damage to my car is the same. Have there been previous safety issues?.

Got in vehicle. Put right foot on brake, put car in drive, took my foot off brake and then immediately reapplied it as car pulled in front of me. Wrangler began creeping forward and I applied more pedal pressure only to find the vehicle accelerating harder. Hit car in front of me. Thought I had my right foot on brake when in fact, most of my right foot was on the accelerator. Why are these pedals so close? I'm normally a left foot braker so this isn't a big issue, but in the case, I used my right foot and ended up having my right foot on both pedals. Very poor design and dangerous, in my opinion.

I feel brake and gas pedal are too close together. I apply brakes but my foot sometimes hit gas pedal at the same time,and vise-versa.

Failure Date: 07/31/2003

I was involved in an accident on 7/31/03. I depressed the brake in a hard manor but since the gas pedal is so close to the brake, my foot was half on the brake and half on the gas pedal. I checked other makes and models and they have more distance between the brake and the gas pedal. This seems to be indicitive of Chrysler products. I have been driving for over 24 years and have a very good driving record. Not once in all those years has this happened. This is the second time in two months this has now happended to me. I purchase my Jeep just two months ago. Please check the spacing of the break and gas pedals for yourselves.

Vehicle in question was fitted with an automatic transmission. When brakes were applied, brake pedal went below accelerator pedal. If one was not very careful, the accelerator would also be depressed when applying brakes. After the fact, I remedied the situation by affixing a one and a half inch block of aluminum to the brake pedal.

Failure Date: 07/01/1997

Because the brake pedal and the gas pedal are within one inch of each other, when depressing the brake pedal, the brake pedal passes the gas pedal and causes consumers foot to catch the side of the gas pedal which overrides the brake. This condition caused a crash in July of 97. Dealer stated that there was not a problem with the Jeep. Problem has been reported to the manufacturer.
