Is it normal for the slk gas pedal to be so stiff. This is the stiffest gas pedal on a car that i have ever owned and I have owned hundreds of cars. Its a hard one to describe but its not sluggish or dragging or anything like that. It just feels like someone installed a 50psi short throw spring up there on the pedal. Stiff but not binding, almost like a clutch on a stick shift car. you could probably rest a brick on the pedal and it wouldn't move. None of my other current cars are even close to this stiffness. Its not horrible or anything but you don't feel like part of the car while pressing the pedal. you just feel like your pushing a pedal and the car moves.
