A brake pedal defect has led GM to recall certain 2015-2016 Chevrolet Silverado 2500, 3500, 1500 Crew Cab Special Service, Tahoe Police Pursuit/Special Service, GMC Sierra 2500 and 3500 vehicles.

The brake pedal pivot nut may loosen, causing the brake pedal to be loose or inoperative. Roughly 41,000 vehicles are affected.

GM will notify owners and dealers will add adhesive to the nut and reinstall the nut with increased tightness, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule.
