    I can't say that I've had many vehicles that had one. When it did have one, I don't recall actually using it.

    On short trips i guess it's OK. Like waiting in traffic. But on a long trip i guess i would rather just stretch that leg out. Maybe while taking a nap and letting the cruise control take over

    well in the 81 k-20 if it had one you woulden't be able to hit the brights, and in my mustang it's so far over to the left that it's actually pretty uncomfortable to use

    I don't really like it, but the new truck has one, so I guess I'll have to deal...

    Talking Some do, some don't, so what?

    The first car I ever drove that had a dead pedal was the BMW 320i. I thought it was pretty cool, and after that any car that didn't have one couldn't be called a "sports car." Now I like the late Tony Hogg's definition of a sports car: "It doesn't have anything on it that doesn't make it go faster." He was referring to the 427 Cobra.
