AS SOON AS I DID THE ACCELERATOR PEDAL STUCK,WENT ALL THE WAY TO THE FLOOR AND CAUSED ME TO HIT THE VEHICLE IN FRONT OF ME. ALSO MY GAS GAUGE DIDN'T WORK AND WOULD RANDOMLY MOVE BACK AND FORTH,EVEN IF I HAD A FULL TANK OF GAS. THEN,THE DRIVER SIDE BRAKE LIGHT CONTINUED TO GO OUT DUE TO THE MELTING OF THE PART OF THE BULB,NOT THE BULB ITSELF. MY ELECTRIC SLIDING DOOR ON PASSENGER SIDE CAME OFF THE TRACK DUE TO THE CORD AND PULLEY/MOTOR IN THE DOOR.
