GM Recalling 473k Trucks and SUVs for Brake Pedal Issue
February 10, 2016
General Motors has announced that it will be recalling more than 473,000 trucks and SUVs for an issue that could cause the brake pedal to come loose and possibly fail to work.
According to GM, a nut on the brake pedal pivot mechanism can come loose, causing the pedal to disconnect and become faulty. The company has not received any reports of accidents or injuries linked to the brake pedal issue.
The company intends to recall 2015-2016 Chevrolet Silverado HD, GMC Sierra HD and Chevrolet Tahoe vehicles.
GM has previously recalled Silverado HD and GMC Sierra HD models for other issues like power steering fluid problems and an issue that could lead to a fuel leak. The Tahoe was also recalled last year for an issue with the ignition lock.
Most recently, the first bellwether GM trial started and ended rather quickly after the plaintiff dropped the case. Still, the trial was one of many to come as the company continues to deal with the fallout of a defective ignition switch that led to injuries and deaths. The defect was uncovered nearly a decade before the company announced a recall for vehicles affected.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration recently launched a “Safe Cars Save Lives” campaign urging consumers to check their cars for recalls. Last year, approximately 51 million vehicles were recalled; however, each year, about 25 percent of recalled vehicles are left unrepaired.
If you believe that your vehicle may be impacted by the latest GM recall, visit www.safercar.gov and use your vehicle’s VIN to determine if it was recalled.
At Phillips Law Group, we believe that big corporations need to be held accountable when their defective products cause injuries. If you have been hurt in an auto accident that may have been caused by a vehicle defect, contact a personal injury lawyer Phoenix for a free legal consultation.
