2011 Ford Mustang GT: Worn Pedal
March 26, 2012
Count this as another reason "sport"pedals are stupid. You know, besides the fact you get less grip when you should in fact want more. And you know, because it's an aesthetic choice in an area you can barely see.
The little rubber grippy things on our Mustang's clutch pedal are breaking apart and pulling away. When using the clutch Friday night my foot felt like it had stepped in something sticky. I checked my shoe and I hadn't. Instead, it was the adhesive from the pedal's rubber bits. This was when I discovered what the pedal actually looked like.
Oh well, at least it happened after 20,000 miles of enthusiastic driving rather than 5,000 of mundanity.
