I WAS DRIVING ON THE INTERSTATE, GOING NORMAL SPEEDS, PRESSED ON THE GAS PEDAL TO GET AROUND A SEMI AND MY ACCELERATOR PEDAL SNAPPED. THE PLASTIC ARM THAT ATTACHES IT TO THE INNER PART IS ALL PLASTIC AND THE VAN IS ONLY 3 YRS OLD AND ONLY 70K MILES. LUCKILY I WAS ABLE TO GET OVER TO THE SIDE OF THE INTERSTATE BUT NOW MY VEHICLE IS STRANDED WITH NO WAY TO GET IT HOME.
