It’s bad enough to have your truck recalled because the brake pedal might fall off. It gets worse when you find out there’s a good chance your truck wasn’t properly fixed … and the brake pedal still might fall off. When a 2015 Silverado that had previously been “repaired” as part of the recall was brought back in for service, it raised a big ole’ red flag.

The automaker then learned the truck had been repaired under a February 2016 recall, something that caused the automaker to open a formal investigation. The GM investigator determined the truck had only been inspected and did not receive adhesive on the brake pivot pedal nut even though the recall procedures required it.

GM is re-recalling 41,000 trucks to fix the problem. Maybe they’ll read the instructions this time.
