Re: stuck accelerator

When the car is moving, it's manageable. But the more you slow down, the greater steering effort will be. And at a standstill....have fun with that.

Re: stuck accelerator

You give the public too much credit. They barely know where the gas a brake pedal are, and you expect them to know what the "N" position does or that you can turn the key while the car is moving? If all 4 systems (accelerator, braking, transmission, ignition) fail at the same time, then yo...

Re: Anyone else got a modern BMW?

What year/model do you have? I have an 06 330i and have none of your issues. Well the reverse thing I've never tried, and my key fob costs I think $300+ to replace because my car is keyless.
