On some Mustang Cobra models, the unique rear surface of the accelerator pedal may catch the cutout in the floor carpeting and not allow the engine to return to idle. This could cause longer stopping distances and/or unexpected, continued acceleration, which may lead to a crash. Dealers will install a shield over the cutout in the carpet behind the accelerator pedal. The recall began April 26, 2006. The Ford recall number is 06S43.
