Does any one else have an issue when moving your foot to the brake and then going back to the accelerator. The problem I occasionally find is my size 9 1/2 shoe has only 1/4" clearance between the side of the console and the brake pedal and when I am moving my foot back to the accelerator the edge of my shoe hits the brake instead of the accelerator and my car abruptly stops. I have almost been rear ended several times. I think this is a design flaw. MB Customer Assistance Center acknowledges that they have had some complaints with this issue but the engineers say this is how they made the car and there is no problem. If enough other drivers are having this problem I am considering a class action law suit since MB does not acknowledge this is a problem. Please let me know if you are disturbed with this problem also.
