Sometimes, a car defines how you need to use it. In the case of our Subaru Ascents, our gas pedal decides where and what proper foot placement is. Each car brand and many models are different. Bottom hinged, vs top hinged (ours) vs mid connect to floor, etc.

  • If you are having poor throttle control or surging or such, compare your foot position to what I show in the video.
  • Same applies if your foot or leg is getting tired.
  • Same for if you find it seems your foot is too close to the brake.

Here's your answer to all of that... sometimes it's the simple things.

If you are using your pedal in the fashion shown in the video and left most image, then, you may wish to speak to your Service Advisor to see if there is an ECM update for your car.
Some Ascents may benefit from an ECM update.

But, beyond that, most commonly, people are using the far right pedal position, which has the worst control of all of them, and will make the car seem jumpy or unresponsive or both.

Interestingly, I have yet found an Ascent that's jerky to me, when I use this same method of pedal control.
