GM is recalling vehicles including the 2015-2016 Chevrolet Silverado 2500, 3500, 1500 Crew Cab Special Service, Tahoe Police Pursuit/Special Service, GMC Sierra 2500, and 3500 vehicles. The reason is that the brake pedal pivot nut may loosen, causing the brake pedal to be loose or inoperative. The consequence of that could make it difficult or impossible for the driver to stop the vehicle by using the brake pedal. In addition, a loose pedal may also interfere with the accelerator pedal. Either condition may increase the risk of a crash.

 

NHTSA says that GM will notify owners, and dealers will add adhesive to the nut and reinstall the nut with increased tightness, free of charge. To verify if your vehicle is part of this recall, you can look it up here at GM's lookup site.

So they are going to install Loctite to the bolt? And the owners have to lose their truck for a day while GM does this? WTG. Too bad these vehicles are not a Lexus. At least they would run the vehicle through the car was and vacuum the interior.....
