I just got a 2009 Borrego EX V6. (I love it :) ) Compared to other vehicles I have owned the gas pedal is excessively sensitive, the merest touch launches the Borrego like a rocket. Do other owners experience this? Is there a cure?

Looks like the Borrego is drive by wire, i.e. the accelerator is an electronic control not a mechanical linkage. If that's correct I'm guessing this problem is a worn accelerator pedal assembly. Can anyone confirm this theory?

It's not helpful when moderators delete their posts, leaving members' replies to those posts confusingly hanging out in the wind...
Usually when folks comply with the request to update their sig, which you did, I delete the request with the intention of cleaning up the thread, but seeing as it appears you'd prefer that it remain in the thread, its back.

I'd recommend get an OBDII scanner and watch the throttle position demand and feedback to confirm that its not eratic.
