RepairPal Expert Overview:

The accelerator pedal may become increasingly difficult to depress. Moisture may get into the sliding surface of the pedal lever, and the lever may deteriorate and bind. A sticking or difficult to operate accelerator causes an increased risk of a collision. Dealers will install a reinforcement bar in the accelerator pedal that will allow the pedal to operate smoothly. This recall began in early February 2010.

A stuck gas pedal can result in very high vehicle speeds, which may lead to a crash. General Motors will notify owners when there is a remedy for this concern. Owners are advised to remove the floor mat and place it in the trunk until the recall remedy is ready. GM recommends that no other floor mat be installed in the interim.
