Default Brake/accelerator pedals

Hi

I just joined after lurking for the past month

I just got my PT about a month ago and I was wondering if this was normal: at lights when I've come to a stop and have my foot on the brake, it kind of moves down further by itself sometimes . Is it meant to do this?

Also, I noticed when cleaning the interior that the accelerator pedal lifts up really easily and feels loose. It's fine when I'm driving and pressing it in with my foot; it just seemed weird that it would pull up so easily when I lifted it with my hand.

Thanks in advance

the brake pedal should NEVER continue to go down with your foot on it. I would have it looked at by a professional. as far as the gas pedal, I think that is normal.

Thanks

when mine started doing that it was the rear wheel cylinders. you might advise the mechanic to check there. i ignored the problem until one day my pedal hit the floor.

Oh dear Well thanks for letting me know. I have a warranty from the dealer, so if it's anything serious I hope that will cover it. I love this car so far though (besides from the MPG but it's a small price to pay )

Thanks again
