Recall Issued for Isuzu, GMC, and Chevrolet Commercial Trucks with Serious Safety Defect
A stuck open accelerator pedal may result in very high speeds and could make it difficult to stop the vehicle
Isuzu Technical Center of America has announced a safety recall affecting approximately 14,800 model year 2008-2009 and 2012-2013 Isuzu NPR and NPR HD vehicles, and model year 2008-2009 GMC/Chevrolet W3500 and W4500 vehicles.
The affected vehicles, which are equipped with a gasoline-powered engine, have a throttle pedal that may get stuck under the steel stopper bolt, causing the pedal to remain in the full throttle position.
A stuck open accelerator pedal may result in very high vehicle speeds and could make it difficult to stop the vehicle, which could cause a crash, serious injury, or death.
Isuzu will notify owners, and dealers will remove and replace the stopper bolt on the recalled vehicles with a flanged plate to prevent lateral movement of the throttle. These repairs will be completed free of charge to vehicle owners.
Isuzu has not yet provided an owner notification schedule for this recall. Vehicle owners with further questions or concerns can contact Isuzu customer service at (866) 441-9638.
