GM recalling heavy duty Silverado, Sierra for loose brake pedal

General Motors says it will recall certain model year 2015-2016 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 and 3500 and same model years GMC Sierra 2500 and 3500 heavy duty trucks manufactured Oct. 1, 2013, to Feb. 1, 2016. On the affected vehicles, GM says the brake pedal pivot nut may loosen, causing the brake pedal to be loose or inoperative.

If the brake pedal becomes loose or inoperative, the driver may be unable to stop the vehicle by using the brake pedal. Additionally, a loose pedal may also interfere with the accelerator pedal. Either condition may increase the risk of a crash.

GM will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the brake pedal pivot nuts, adding thread adhesive and tightening the nut as necessary, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule.
