GM recalling nearly 500,000 trucks, SUVs for brake pedal problem.

The AP (2/9) reports that “General Motors is recalling more than 473,000 trucks and SUVs in the U.S. and Canada because the brake pedals can come loose and fail to work properly.” The AP says the “recall covers certain 2015 and 2016 Chevrolet Silverado HD, GMC Sierra HD and Chevrolet Tahoe police vehicles.” GM explains “a nut on the brake pedal pivot mechanism can come loose, causing the pedal to loosen and possibly become inoperative,” and that it has received “no reports of crashes or injuries due to the problem.”

        Consumerist (2/9, Kieler, 66K) reports that GM has yet to submit recall notices with the NHTSA.
