Recall 02V060000

Brake Pedal Pad Breaks

Recall Details

The brake pedal pad may fracture and come apart from the brake pedal arm, causing difficulty braking. Dealers will inspect and replace the brake pedal assembly as needed free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

The brake pedal pad may break and separate from the pedal actuator arm. This would result in difficulty actuating the brake system, and could dislodge the driver's foot from securely applying the brakes.

What Should You Do?

General Motors notified owners of affected vehicles starting in February 2002. You can check with your dealer to see if your vehicle is involved in this program. It is helpful to have your VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) on hand when you contact them.
