Chevy Bolt Recall: All-Weather Floor Liner May Trap Gas Pedal

General Motors is recalling certain all-weather floor liners with part number 42686568 that were sold for use as a front driver-side accessory for 2017-2021 Chevy Bolts. There is insufficient clearance between the liner and the gas pedal, and that may result in the pedal becoming trapped by the liner.

A trapped gas pedal can result in unintended acceleration, causing the vehicle to not decelerate as expected when the driver lifts their foot from the gas pedal, increasing the risk of a crash, NHTSA says.

Dealers will replace the floor liner, free of charge. Owners are advised to remove the floor liner from the vehicle until it is replaced. Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed on Nov. 29, 2021.

Owners may contact GM customer service at 1-888-988-7267.
