RepairPal Expert Overview
The accelerator pedal may become hard to depress while driving the car. If the pedal sticks while driving, it could lead to a crash.
We at RepairPal have designated this a medium priority recall; this would change to high if any problems are noted with the accelerator pedal. Please contact your General Motors dealer. They will check to see if your specific vehicle is affected and advise you on what to do next. Always have your vehicle identification number (VIN) handy when you call.
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.
