Montana Van sticky gas pedal


I was driving on a rural road and was going to pass a 5 ton truck!
I pressed the gas pedal to the floor and successfully passed!
When I took my foot off the gas pedal, it remained stuck in the full throttle position.
I had to slip my toe under the pedal and pull it back manually.
A scary experience!

In light of the Toyota recalls, has there been any recalls with GM vans. Mine is a 2009 model, purchased in October of 2009. (new)

Been there, done that! Problem is resolved.

Pedal was interfered with by a 3rd party floor mat!
