I own a 2017 Outback 2.5i Premium with Eyesight and CVT, which I have driven about 11000 miles so far. It is generally an excellent car but the brake pedal is only slightly higher than the height of the gas pedal, and consequently it is possible to hit both the brake pedal AND the gas pedal simultaneously. This could be very dangerous in an emergency situation (e.g., a child runs out in front of the car), as the car surges forward just when you are trying for maximum braking, thus extending the stopping distance of the car. Other cars (I have owned VWs, Saabs, and Volvos) have the brake pedal significantly higher than the gas pedal, making this situation impossible. I have asked the dealer service manager about this and was told that the brake pedal height is not adjustable, and so I should ask Subaru Customer Retail Services (the USA HQ). Subaru Customer Retail Services has not yet provided a fix. I have also reported this problem to the NHTSA, hoping NHTSA will require Subaru to fix this dangerous problem. In the meantime, does anyone have a simple fix? I wonder if a simple shim - perhaps 0.75" to 1.0" on top of the brake pedal? - would work temporarily, while we wait for Subaru to provide a more permanent fix?
