Volkswagen AG is recalling more than 800,000 upscale VW and Porsche sport utility vehicles because their foot pedals could become loose.

The callback affects 409,477 Cayenne SUVs and 391,000 Touareg vehicles from model years 2011 to 2016, the Volkswagen units said in separate statements. A clip could be loose on the bearing bracket for the pedals on the cars, which are sister models and share some components. The Cayenne was Porsche’s bestselling model before being overtaken by its smaller SUV sibling, the Macan, last year. Porsche sold 86,016 Macans and 79,700 Cayennes in 2015.
