- GM Recalling 473k Trucks and SUVs for Brake Pedal Issue
February 10, 2016
General Motors has announced that it will be recalling more than 473,000 trucks and SUVs for an issue that could cause the brake pedal to come loose and possibly fail to work.
According to GM, a nut on the brake pedal pivot mechanism can come loose, causing the pedal to disconnect and become faulty. The company has not received any reports of accidents or injuries linked to the brake pedal issue.
The company intends to recall 2015-2016 Chevrolet Silverado HD, GMC Sierra HD and Chevrolet Tahoe vehicles.
GM has previously recalled Silverado HD and GMC Sierra HD models for other issues like power steering fluid problems and an issue that could lead to a fuel leak. The Tahoe was also recalled last year for an issue with the ignition lock.
Most recently, the first bellwether GM trial started and ended rather quickly after the plaintiff dropped the case. Still, the trial was one of many to come as the company continues to deal with the fallout of a defective ignition switch that led to injuries and deaths. The defect was uncovered nearly a decade before the company announced a recall for vehicles affected.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration recently launched a “Safe Cars Save Lives” campaign urging consumers to check their cars for recalls. Last year, approximately 51 million vehicles were recalled; however, each year, about 25 percent of recalled vehicles are left unrepaired.
If you believe that your vehicle may be impacted by the latest GM recall, visit www.safercar.gov and use your vehicle’s VIN to determine if it was recalled.
At Phillips Law Group, we believe that big corporations need to be held accountable when their defective products cause injuries. If you have been hurt in an auto accident that may have been caused by a vehicle defect, contact a personal injury lawyer Phoenix for a free legal consultation.

It’s an Honor and a Privilege to work for a company that cares about its employees and clients for 12 years. I’ve seen Management go out of their way to help someone whether it’s a personal matter or work related. I am also reminded of many occasions where a Client needed urgent help and we as a Team were able to get the person immediate assistance. At Phillips Law we make that happen through Teamwork and a dedication to our profession. I’ve had numerous jobs in several other fields, those were just jobs. This is a home. Many of us have been here for quite a few years, it feels like one large extended family.
I have been with Phillips Law Group for a little over a year and I have learned what teamwork and family in a workplace looks like. There is always someone around to lend a helping hand, which is something I appreciate and cherish. I feel a sense of joy coming to work every day because of my co-workers as well as being able to help people in what can be a scary and stressful situation. I currently work as a Litigation Legal Assistant with an amazing team. When I started here, I was not very knowledgeable in personal injury. I was lucky to have been placed with an amazing team who was willing to take time to teach and pass on some great skills that have been a huge aid in helping me be successful in my position. I would recommend working here at Phillips Law Group, because they care about their employees and there is so much room for growth.
Great experience! Took care of pretty much everything, and I always felt like I want in good hands. Caroline Fa. was also a great help with everything. She always returned my calls and I never felt unheard. Even after my case she would still help me with my insurance documents.
A friend of mine recommended Phillips Law and I’m so grateful, because they were so wonderful, so down to earth, so professional. I felt like they were family.
I’ve been working at Phillips Law Group for nearly four years and I can confidently say this is the best personal injury firm in Arizona to work for. The firm is the best for numerous reasons but to start, Phillips Law Group gives employees opportunities for promotions and growth. I started working within the settlement department, moved to a paralegal assistant and grew to be a pre-litigation paralegal with my own case load. Each attorney I have worked for is extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and easy to talk to. Secondly, I love how Phillips Law shows appreciation for employees. They host Friday Zoom Huddles giving out PTO, goodie bags, special shout outs, bonuses and gift cards. They also host extravagant holiday parties and fun contests during the Holidays! Lastly, the firm cares about giving back to the community, which is a trait I value as well. It’s rewarding to see a fast paced firm taking time out of their busy day to pay it forward. I would highly recommend working at Phillips Law Group!
Sophia H is very helpful.
Jeffrey Phillips is truly a brilliant attorney and businessman. I would not hesitate for a moment to contact him if I needed a personal injury attorney in Arizona, you would be fortunate to have him and his team. If you have a car accident, slip and fall in a store, or get punched in the face, call Phillips.
Kathy Hudson and Donato Giovanatto. Continues to go above and beyond the call of duty. Reaching out to the insurance company about the damage to the vehicle. Forcing them to take responsibility.
