Recall Details

The brake pedal may loosen and fail to operate properly, due to the loosening of a pivot nut. Dealers will inspect the brake pedal pivot nuts and add thread adhesive, tightening the nut as necessary free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

The brake pedal may become loose and may stop working, resulting in loss of braking ability and increasing risk of an accident.

Recalls on your affected Chevrolet or GMC truck must be performed by a General Motors dealership. General Motors will notify owners of affected vehicles (a timetable of this notification is not available as of the time of this writing). If you do 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.
