| Condition:|| On some 2016 model year Buick Cascada, 2012-2017 Buick Verano, 2014-2016 Cadillac ELR, 2010-2016 Chevrolet Cruze, 2011-2015 Chevrolet Volt, and 2011-2013 Chevrolet Orlando (Canada) vehicles, the accelerator pedal can break at the stalk just below the housing due to the driver entering or exiting the vehicle with their foot resting on the accelerator pedal. If the pedal breaks, it would not be possible to operate the accelerator once the stalk has broken off. The vehicle would return to idle regardless of transmission gear position. |
| Special Coverage Adjustment|| This special coverage covers the condition described above for a period of 10 years or 120,000 miles (193,000 km), whichever occurs first, from the date the vehicle was originally placed in service, regardless of ownership. |
For vehicles covered by Vehicle Service Contracts, all eligible claims with repair orders on or after August 12, 2016, are covered by this special coverage and must be submitted using the labor operation codes provided with this bulletin. Claims with repair orders prior to August 12, 2016, must be submitted to the Service Contract provider.
| Correction|| Dealers are to inspect and if required, replace the accelerator pedal position sensor assembly. The repairs will be made at no charge to the customer. |
