2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA250: Tight Pedal Box

February 13, 2014

2014 Mercedes-Benz CLA250

Generally speaking, there are two types of drivers: those who pick their foot up to transfer from gas to brake, and those who pivot off of their heel to get from pedal to pedal.

I fall into the latter category and happen to wear a size 12. This isn't ideal with the CLA.

There's just not enough foot space in the pedal box. I alternate between thwacking the outside of my right foot against the hard, loud plastic that butts up against the gas pedal, and getting the left corner of my shoe trapped under the brake. It's not so bad as to interfere with the way either of the pedals work, but it is bad enough to be really, really annoying.
