Chevrolet Spark clutch pedal recall for UK

When you see the likes of a Chevrolet being part of a recall notice you would imagine it would be all over the Internet — well on Auto websites and certain news sites as well. However, for some reason there is a new Chevrolet Spark recall and there hasn’t been much media attention, if any.

The new Chevrolet Spark recall is due to an issue with its clutch pedal for owners in the UK, where there is a chance that you will not be able to change or select a gear.

Chevy recalls thousands: There are 8,314 affected Chevrolet Spark’s, which involves the models from July 2009 to September 2010. To make life easier just look at the VIN and if they fall in the range KL1MF4819AC125313 to KL1MF48D9AC239284, then you will need to contact your nearest Chevrolet dealer.

Chevrolet’s Spark recall is due to an issue with the clutch pedal, which could pivot and in turn will make it almost impossible for you to depress the pedal.

Addressing this recall: Chevrolet will take your car and then install a bracket to reinforce the clutch pedal pivot, which should then put an end to the issue.

While this might not be a huge recall and lacks media attention, we have seen on several car forums that Chevrolet Spark owners have been complaining about this clutch pedal issue for some time, with some owners angry that the pedal actually fell off.

Those owners who had these issues had written to Chevrolet in the UK time and again, but for some reason that took ages to get back to them, but at least they have finally reacted — even if it took longer than it should have.

Hi all, Just wanted to post as I think it might help others. My wife was driving her Spark (2010 reg) which we have had for 5 months, on Friday 17th when the clutch pedal suddenly snapped completely from the top. I saw this thread so called our local Chevrolet dealer/services on the Sunday to which they said to bring it in. I took it to them on the Wednesday with any paperwork I could find, forums, DVSA recall website etc… Very pleased to say that they called me the next day to say that the car was fixed and… Read more »

Hi. Only just looking at various sites as last Monday (24/10/16) I went to put my Spark into gear and the pedal snapped off!!!!!!! This isn’t just a problem on the 2009 to 2010 as mine is a 2012 model. Seems to be a problem that they are not addressing. Unfortunately the car has done 96000 miles plus and they do not want to know.

Hi,last Friday I broke down on motorway. The clutch pedal just snapped off when I was changing a lane. The pedal just fell off.. This was very dangerous, could cause a serious accident! I’ve never seen a plastic clutch. This shouldn’t be make from plastic! I went to Chevrolet and they have said that won’t be free of charge and they have to order and replace a whole unit as its a massive job it will cost incl. fitting £550! It’s absolutely a nightmare as I can’t get anywhere without car and my work is miles away too! Please advise,… Read more »
