Consumer complaining about the design of the accelerator pedal being close to the brake pedal. Mr the consumer states that it causes additional seconds to get his foot on the brake pedal from the accelerator pedal. The consumer also states that the same maneuver happens when his right foot hits the end of the side vertical panel. Scc when looking in the rear view mirror, consumer can only see one quarter of the bottom horizontal view. On a sunny day, the illuminated numbers on the dash are not visible and requires repeated glances to obtain an accurate reading. The passenger door handle is difficult to reach for closing once it has been opened.
