Default 2002 SL2 pedal inquiry

Hi all,

Iíve had my Ď02 SL2 for over 13 years now and Iím damn proud to say I own it. I let my buddy, Patrick, take it for a spin recently. He mentioned that the pedal was acting like a sports pedal set up. The pedal is like on a hinge/joint, so you can apply pressure from whatever angle and it reacts.
This is the first Iíve heard of something like this. I never noticed this until my friend brought it to my attention. Now that Iím aware of this, I canít help but notice it every time I take the SL2 for a drive. I donít have an issue with it. But I want to make sure that itís a standard thing, and not a problem with my SL2 in particular.
Any help and/or advice would be great!

Best regards,
-Dave

Gas pedal? Clutch? Brake?

not familiar with "sports pedal" . . . I usually apply pressure to all three pedals from the front. Not sure I get what you are describing

Totally normal for a saturn s series.
Some cars are hinged at the floor level, ours aren't, but rather hinged partway up and not attached to the floor at all.

The VW bug comes to mind. The original, not the sequel.

I haven't seen a floor-hinged pedal in a while.

ditto with the floor-mounted high beam switch. Used to be a momentary switch mounted by the left foot, stepped on it to turn high beams on/off.

Lasted maybe a couple of years before getting badly rusted, location was not a good idea

^^ Agreed about the rusting issue.
However; it was a great source of fun for this dad when his sons were smallish.
I would have the headlights on low beam, tell my boys that in say, 5 seconds the high beams would be on for 5 seconds, then turn off again to low beams....
After the 2nd cycle through, they would have caught on, but ah it was a bit of fun for awhile. They still remember those good times.

I miss high/low beams on the floor. Never saw one rust out.
Helicopters have basically the same switch on the floor for transmit. It is a momentary switch though. It is set up for your right foot in American helicopters.
