Saw a new warranty on MyChevrolet.com and was wondering what the heck it was. I researched it and could not find any information on it. I asked the service department here and they gave me full written paperwork on it. I'll summarize it for you all.

#38170: Special Coverage Adjustment - Accelerator Pedal Stalk Fracture

Vehicles Affected:
Chevrolet Cruze - 2010-2016

Buick Cascada (USA) - 2016
Buick Verano - 2012-2017
Cadillac ELR - 2014-2016
Chevrolet Volt - 2011-2015
Chevrolet Orlando (Canada) - 2011-2013


Condition: "On the vehicles listed above, the accelerator pedal can break at the stalk just below the housing due to the driver entering and 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."

Parts Information: Accelerator Pedal Assembly #13252702


Figured I'd share the information since it was just released and no one had it on the internet yet.

I'm trying to figure out how people are getting in and out of the car with their foot on the pedal. I can see this in the Cascada and Orlando as those are small SUVs, but not in a sedan.

Cascada a convertible.

I'm guessing boot slips on ice and shebang.

Gonna take a look and see exactly what the "stalk" is. Have to use a flashlight since there's no lights in the footwell its gonna be dark done there.

I had to go look at mine just to see what style it is. The pedal hangs in the air, supported by what I think they're calling the "stalk". Yeah, you break that, you're going nowhere.

I'll have to see if my Volt is affected, as I'm at 114k miles right now, so caught it just in time! Thanks for the information Sparkman

Well, as I read it, the failure occurs when the part is 'kicked' sideways......like a foot slip while entering the car......so, it should be broken before you close the door to leave.

Kind of along the lines of the warranty extensions for the water pump or negative battery cable.....only replaced if failure occurs.
