I have a '16 CR-V EX-L. When my left foot is resting on the footrest on the floor, the small pedal on the end of the parking brake is just a very small distance from my leg, just a little above the ankle. If I shift a little bit, or move my left foot around a little, the pedal digs into my leg. Mind you, it's not poking into it constantly, but I get banged enough to find it a little annoying. Anyone else?

The strange thing is, I don't remember it happening when I took it for a test drive when I bought it.

One reason I like the 1st and 2nd gens, better over the 3rd and 4th gens, parking brake was hand operated. I hate the foot pedal in general on any vehicle that has it there.

Yes, at first the parking brake position bothered my too. But after a week or so I don't even notice it being there.

I've seen that pedal position, not well thought out.

As for most vehicles having electric parking brake, pedals being on the floor has been the most common design for decades. Just the pedal placement for that specific CRV isnt great. Very very few have that yet and only in the last couple years have more brands been converting to it.

sounds like first world problems there..

I kinda hated it too, because i like to rest my feet there and its there obstructing my feet.

I personally always had wondered what would happen to my left leg in the event an accident because of that parking break. How far it would dig into my foot is (thanks good) is still a mystery.
