When preparing to hit your car’s brake pedal, the last thing you want is for the control to be broken. Unfortunately, that could be the case for more than 800,000 Volkswagen and Porsche SUVs. 

The recall of 800,477 model year 2011 to 2016 VW Touareg and Porsche Cayenne vehicles was initiated after the company found that their foot pedals could come loose, Bloomberg reports.

While the recall hasn’t been posted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration yet, the issue reportedly involves a clip that could be loose on the bearing bracket for the pedals on the cars.

VW says it found the potential defect during internal checks. Owners of the affected vehicles will be notified and dealers will fix the issue in less than half an hour.
