Isuzu Truck Recall Tied to Unintended Acceleration

By Team Writer / November 20, 2016

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. The Isuzu NPR and NPR HD trucks were manufactured from Aug. 26, 2013, to Nov. 11, 2016.

Key Takeaways:

  • Isuzu is recalling 25,018 2014-2016 vehicles over concerns of unintended acceleration.
  • 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.
  • Isuzu dealers will remove and replace the defective stopper bolt with a flanged plate at no cost.

“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.”
