2012 Chevy Sonic: Sticky Pedal

June 12, 2012

When driving home last night, I noticed that the Sonic's clutch pedal felt sticky at its furthest point of motion as I approached and departed its stopping point. This happened every time I used the clutch pedal, and as traffic inhaled robustly small spherical objects last night, I was using the clutch a lot. It got annoying.

This morning, the stickyness had lessened, but was still there. I wasn't using the pedal as much, however. I'll try and monitor the situation. And despite my illustration above, this isn't a matter of there being gum or pedal glue on the pedal pad itself (or syrup). It seems to be the mechanism; I was just following the old journalism adage "use Mrs. Butterworth whenever possible to illustrate your point. Aunt Jemima is acceptable in a pinch."

And now I want waffles.
