Re: What's the scariest car failure you've had while driving?
One I can lay claim to:
Flooring the throttle in traffic; got the throttle pedal stuck under a floor mat.
So pressed the clutch in a hurry, and stomped on the brakes to get things sane, and in the meantime, the
recognised the over-revving as a fault, took it back to tickover, and also set off the hazard warning lights.
Pulled the carpet back, and the lights cleared, and full normal control was restored.
Definitely a moment of extreme concern....
Lesson learned; screw down floor mats when fitting.
Thanks for reminding me that i need to do mine before i have an incident
