Four Recalls by General Motors

On June 5, 2014 the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) got reports of four recalls by General Motors. In this article I will tell you about the two largest of those four recalls. In the next article, which actually the continuation of this one, you will have the chance to read about the smaller two recalls by GM.

 

Thus, let us start with the largest of all four recalls. Affected by the recall are nearly 57,512 vehicles. The models being called back are the following:

  • Model-year 2014 Chevrolet Silverado LD
  • Model-year 2014 GMC Sierra LD
  • Model-year 2015 Silverado HD, Tahoe and Suburban
  • Model-year 2015 GMC Sierra HD, Yukon and Yukon XL

 

The vehicles are being called back because the base radio may fail to work if the key is in the ignition when the driver's door is open. This condition may prevent crucial safety warnings from being heard. The problem increases the hazards of being involved in a collision and getting injuries.

 

It should be noted that the automaker is not aware of any related accidents or injuries so far. The dealers will reprogram the radio control module free of charge for the affected owners. GM will notify its customer about the recall, soon.

 

The second recall affects more than 31,000 vehicles. Involved in the recall are the following models:

  • Model-year 2012 Buick Verano
  • Model-year 2012 Chevrolet Camaro
  • Model-year 2012 Cruze
  • Model-year 2012 Sonic

 

The problem with these compact cars is that the shorting bar inside the dual stage driver's air bag may contact the airbag terminals. As a result of this, the airbag warning light may illuminate. If the car ad terminals contact each other during a crash, the airbag will fail to deploy, increasing the risk of injuries and even fatalities.The automaker will notify all the affected owners about the recall. GM dealers will inspect and fix the cars at no charge.
