 Description of the problemA stuck wide open throttle occurred while driving my 2004 ford svt cobra mustang... Fortunately i am an experienced driver with some auto racing in my background... I was able to quickly push in the clutch(engine was bouncing off the rev limiter at this point), and turn off the key... The cobra mustang has hydro-boost power brakes and power steering so at this point, steering effort and brake pedal effort "went through the roof"(were very high). Since i am an enthusiastic supporter and buyer of ford products i would like to see a recall on this very common problem... Before some one less experienced gets killed!!! These are very powerful cars!!! Things happen extremely fast when the pedal is down!!! The cause of this stuck throttle is a partial bending of the accelerator pedal, and the contact with and sticking under of the carpet by the pedal. A stuck wide open throttle in any car is very dangerous!!! A stuck wide open throttle in this particular car is insane!!! To correct the problem as soon as i arrived home i trimmed the carpet that was contacting the throttle when down... So that it would no longer touch at all. Please note---> at first i thought that the floor mat had caused the problem. I was wrong... While still possible if dislodged from it's anchor point... It was not what was sticking the pedal... It was the carpet, which was shaped poorly and retained even worse in that critical throttle area. Please notify the proper authorities as to the potential for extreme consequences this defect presents. Please note that the date in the date field is a guess since this occurred over a year ago... I am filing now because i have read about numerous other instances of this occurring and i find it very troubling.
