Brake peddle goes lower than the gas peddle,and if you miss having your foot all the way on the break peddle you hit the gas which overpowers the breaking. I have had a few very close calls with this problem and am trying to find out if there is a solution (maybe a way for the break to be fully engaged before meeting the gas peddle).

Re: brake and gas peddle
systems are power assisted via vacuum from the engine. Your brake
booster is what makes the "power assist" work. There are some specific
times when you will feel your brake pedal "fade" to the floor and it is
normal due to the cycle of the brake components operation.

Hello, I would check two things 1: jack the rear of ur car up and spin the tires if a light spin allows the wheel to spin several times your brakes will need adjusted up... Also a good time to see if there's any wetness inside the drum from a leaky wheel cylinder.... 2: some times a master cylnder can leak on the inside of the brake booster and u would not be able to see it with out pulling the master cylinder forward u will not need to disconnect the lines if u r gentle with it... I hope this helps you!!! Good luck!!!!
What you are feeling from the break pedal is that the rotors are warped a little bit. So, as the warped part of the rotor goes through the caliper its pushing the break pedal back in to your foot. Most break shops can turn your rotors for you ... the price of turning a rotor around me is about 15 dollars, plus the labor to take it off. 50 bucks should get your breaks nice and smooth again.
That sounds like a faulty brake light switch located down on the brake pedal lever under the dash, or a damaged wire at the wire connector to the brake light switch. Here are some images of what the brake light switch looks like to help assist you.
the Brake pedal is a huge Pedal. Move your foot over.. Be less lazy in your foot placement. Its an 08 so i'm assuming fairly new to you.. Its gotta be different from what your used too. Sit up straight, slide your seat up..move your foot over, and drive. Sleeping is for Beds..
