Question Exposed footwell

Is it normal to see this in the foot-well under the steering wheel?

Iíve never looked specifically down there but I never noticed that being exposed. Iíd imagine that being a safety hazard with the moving parts/joints being exposed by your feet and shoes.

I can see the same parts exposed in my van. The carpet behind the gas pedal goes straight across to the left without going down at the slit. Other than the slit that touches the rubber mat, it looks similar in my gas 2017 Pacifica.

I suspect the 2019 Pacifica carpet is cut as your van's carpet is.

Mine does not look like that. My carpet covers all of that.

I just looked today and my 2019 also has an exposed footwell. It seems pretty clear from the U shaped cut in the carpet that this was supposed to ride up much higher, along the steering mechanism. I'm not sure if this would merit being called a 'problem', but it sure is sloppy craftsmanship/assembly. Not sure there is any recourse here.

I will trade you my van's stalling at stop lights for your carpet misalignment.

I think the point is that neither of us should being having issues, be they minor (like mine), or major and a serious safety concern (like yours).

Exposed footwell

Mine also looks the same , even though the upper seam is cut slightly different.
May be there was a change in part supplier. IMG_3569.jpg
This doesnít bother me a bit since itís so hard to see it in the first place (you really have to be below knee level to see it) and you need to have a flashlight in hand. There isnít any smell or air / water leaking through that opening and I donít have any issues with noise in the cabin.

I can confirm that the slot is Ďnormalí. My van has the same slot.
