Chevrolet Recall Information
- The GM company recalled certain 2015 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, Tahoe and Suburban, GMC Sierra 1500 and Yukon, and Cadillac Escalade vehicles because electric power steering assist might be lost momentarily, followed by a sudden return of electrical power steering assist. If this loss and sudden return happens, the driver may possibly have difficulty steering the vehicle. This may especially be possible at low speeds, according to the NHTSA September 7, 2018, report, number 18V586000.
- General Motors LLC (GM) issued a recall of certain 2015-2016 Chevrolet Silverado 2500, 3500, 1500 Crew Cab Special Service, Tahoe Police Pursuit/Special Service, GMC Sierra 2500, and 3500 vehicles. This was done because, according to the company, the brake pedal pivot nut could possibly loosen, which could cause the brake pedal to be loose or inoperative. If this happens, the driver may not be able to stop using the brake pedal. In addition, a loose pedal could possibly also interfere with the accelerator pedal. This recall was reported August 30, 2018, NHTSA number 18V578000.
- General Motors issued a recall (18V576000) of certain 2018-2019 Chevrolet Equinox, Impala, Cruze, Volt and Bolt EV cars, GMC Terrain vehicles, Buick Lacrosse and Regal cars, Cadillac XTS and XTS Professional vehicles and 2018 Chevrolet Malibu cars. This was done because the rear brake caliper pistons could possibly have an insufficient coating causing gas pockets to form, which could potentially reduce rear brake performance, according to the Aug. 30, 2018 report.
- Jayco, Inc. recalled certain 2015-2017 Jayco Redhawk motorhomes built on Chevrolet Van chassis because liquid could possibly leak into the driver’s power window switch, possibly causing corrosion. If this happens, it is possible there may be high electrical resistance, which could result in fire. This was reported August 27, 2018, NHTSA number 18V564000.
- The company recalled certain model year 2009-2014 Chevrolet Express and GMC Savana vans manufactured January 27, 2009, through March 7, 2014 with a gross vehicle weight rating of 10,000 pounds and less and equipped with front passenger air bags. In the affected vehicles, during a frontal impact below the air bag deployment threshold, if an unbelted front passenger’s head hits the instrument panel above where the passenger air bag is located, the panel may not sufficiently absorb the impact. As such, these vehicles fail to meet the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard number 201, “Occupant Protection in Interior Impact.” In the event of a crash below the air bag deployment threshold, an unbelted front passenger seat occupant has an increased risk of injury.
- GM issued a recall of certain model year 2012 Chevy Camaro, Buick Verano, Cruze, and Sonic cars. The driver side frontal air bag has a shorting bar which may intermittently contact the air bag terminals. If the bar and terminals are contacting each other at the time of a crash necessitating deployment of the driver’s frontal airbag, that airbag will not deploy.
- GM is recalling 6,213 MY 2007 Equinox and Pontiac Torrent vehicles for failing to conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 212, “Windshield Mounting.” An incorrect primer may have been used when installing the windshield. The same primer may have also been applied to the liftgate glass and the side stationary glass. In the event of a crash, the windshield may not be retained to the extent required by the standard.
- 2005-2006 Chevrolet Cobalt passenger vehicles were not equipped with optional roof-mounted side impact air bags for failing to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 201, ‘Occupant Protection in Interior Impact.’ In a crash, head impact protection may be inadequate.
- About 1,602 MY 2007 Buick Lacrosse, Chevrolet Impala, and Pontiac Grand Prix automobiles were recalled. The fuel tank is missing the adhesive layer that bonds the barrier layer to the outer shell of the fuel tank. With this condition, fuel and/or fuel vapors could seep out between the layers, increasing the risk of a fire.
