2007 Grand Cherokee gas/brake pedal issue
I recently purchased a 2007 Grand Cherokee with about 50k miles.
The problem as I see it is the brake and gas pedals are more staggered than other vehicles, including Grand Cherokees, that I have driven. The brake pedal appears to be several inches higher than the gas pedal.
It can be difficult to quickly move my foot from the gas to the break. Further, the brake seems more tense than normal, and the gas seems to be softer than normal. It is also uncomfortable, as it feels like my foot is strained forward to accelerate the car to highway speeds, but then my knee is very close to the bottom of the steering column when my foot is on the gas.
I noticed this problem when I test drove the vehicle, but I thought I'd get used to it.
Mine is not one of the WK's that has adjustable pedals. I took it to a few shops, but they seem to say that is how it is. I have to think there is some other opition to fix the problem..
I'd like to somehow align the brake and gas, either by lowering the brake or raising the gas.
Any help is VERY much appreciated!
