Crazy thing happened lastnight..i was heading back from the city ...racing an A6.....as i slowed down to the Toll's i noticed my car was still accelerating...my gas pedal got stuck....i was bugging out...i had to turn off my car ...cuz i was hitting the rev limiter, when it wa sin neutral.............so i had to reach down and pull out the pedal....to un jam......just curious if this happned to anyone else.......it was crazy :nervous: :nervous: :cry:

P.S. i was beating the A6 the whole time ...it was a 3.0 :)

That is scary! I guess that it is a drive by wire version. Was the hinge of the gas pedal stiff or did it get caught on something?

It has not happened to me

make sure that your floor mats dont get pushed up into that corner, where the gas pedal is, because sometimes if mine slide there, they brush the bottom of the pedal, and i could see how it might get stuck. good think youre ok.
