Recall 14V345000

Driver's Floor Mat Anchor Missing

Recall Details

For vehicles equipped with a vinyl floor covering, there may not be a driver's floor mat anchor as required to secure the driver's floor mat in the proper position. Vehicle owners will be notified to not use their floor mats and will be reimbursed for their purchase price, free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

For vehicles equipped with a vinyl floor covering, the driver's side floor mat anchor may be missing. This could allow a floor mat to shift and cause the accelerator pedal to get lodged and stick in a position where it accelerates the vehicle without being commanded by the driver.

What Should You Do?

Recalls on your Chevrolet or GMC truck must be performed by a General Motors dealership. General Motors notified known owners of affected vehicles in August, 2014. If you did not receive a notification, but wish to check to see if your vehicle is included, please contact one of your local General Motors dealerships. They will also check for any other uncompleted recalls on your vehicle. For best results, be prepared to provide your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to the service department consultant you speak with. The General Motors recall number is 14310.

Summary
General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2014 Chevrolet Silverado vehicles manufactured May 15, 2013, to January 29, 2014, and GMC Sierra vehicles manufactured September 19, 2013, to February 8, 2014, and equipped with both optional accessory all-weather floor mats (option RPO VAV) and optional vinyl flooring (option RPO BG9). The affected vehicles built with the vinyl flooring option do not have the retention features necessary to properly secure the floor mat on the driver's side.
Consequence
The floor mat could shift such that it could interfere with the accelerator pedal, preventing its return to an idle position, which could result in unintended vehicle speeds, increasing the risk of a crash.
Remedy
GM will notify owners, and reimburse the owner for the purchase price upon their return. The owners will also be provided an insert for their owners manual instructing them not to use floor mats, free of charge. The recall began on August 18, 2014. Owners may contact General Motors customer service at 1-800-222-1020 (Chevrolet) or 1-800-462-8782 (GMC). GM's number for this recall is 14310.
Notify
Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
