Isuzu Technical Center of America is recalling 25,018 2014- to 2016-model year Isuzu NPR and NPR HD trucks and 2016-MY Chevrolet Low Cab Forward 3500 HD, 4500HD, and 4500XD trucks because of potential unintended acceleration, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
These vehicles have an accelerator 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 make it difficult to stop the vehicle, which could cause a crash, serious injury or death,” NHTSA warned on its website.
The Isuzu NPR and NPR HD trucks were manufactured from Aug. 26, 2013, to Nov. 11, 2016. The Chevrolet Low Cab Forward 3500 HD, 4500HD, and 4500XD trucks were manufactured from July 27 to Nov. 11 of this year.
