gas pedal loose?

This might be a dumb question but I just wanted to check if im the only one with this little curiousity or not. Is it normal for our gas pedal to be loose about 1/4 of an inch? I mean when I gas, I have to get pass 1/4 of an inch before it accelerates. This was kinda odd to me so when i checked the pedal, i notice that it was kinda loose. Is this normal? Other cars I've driving like the mustang, my supra, friend's iTR, etc..doesnt have this.

Oh by the way, I think this thread belongs to "general discussion" or "new members" ...eehh moderators feel free to move it. Thx thumbsup thumbsup thumbsup=P

Blue_jaggon...I think that's a major problem.gotta look at the long term; it might get worse and especially dangerous. It can be a big problem but minor to fix it.
