DETROIT . Honda Motor has recalled about 25,000 Civics to fix or replace accelerator pedals that could come loose and jam the throttle, according to a notice posted on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Web site.
Most of the 25,298 vehicles under recall in the United States have not been sold, according to Honda. There have been no crashes or injuries linked to the problem.
NHTSA says Honda also has begun recalling a few hundred of its 2006 Acura TL and Honda Accord models to tighten bolts that attach airbag crash sensors to the fronts of cars. Loose sensors could cause airbags to deploy too late or not at all.
What this means to you: If you have a 2006 Honda Civic, it's a good idea to have your dealer take a look at it.
Did anyone else find it slightly amusing that the gas pedal got stuck, but no injuries were caused by it?
hahha good point.. but thats kinda funny, 06 honda, a recall already(which is kinda good meaning that they arent putting it off) but anyway, i think it IS true for most cars that the earlier models were better in quality, i know that for the benz's, the old ones were good and not very prone to problems while the new ones just suck

just because a gas pedal sticks doesnt necessarily mean its going to make you go really fast. In my old car the gas pedal kept getting stuck for a while, but it didn't make me accelerate a lot, it would just get stuck when you first pressed it in, so all you had to do was keep tapping it a bit, not floor it or anything, sometimes I would stall out though.
I understand with this they say it came loose, but that doesn't mean you'll floor it and go fast, it could mean you stall out if you have a stick, like in my old car when I couldnt get the gas in.

My jeep used to do the same thing, the pedal would stick a little bit but usually if i jabbed it with my foot a few times it would get unstuck. It didnt make me go really fast but faster then normal at times and I could tell pretty quick when it was stuck.
