Check Out This List Of General Motors To Be Recalled

2014 Chevrolet Cruze Clean Turbo Diesel

Recently it seemed General Motors couldn’t go more than a week without issuing a major recall. Indeed, the organization recalled 4.8 million vehicles in March. Considering that the initial recall on February 10, over 5.5 million GM vehicles are already recalled.

We used the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration recall list to compile a snapshot of all the GM vehicles recalled over the last two months. NHTSA also provides the search engines that allows owners to search for recalls on their vehicle.

An automotive company should do everything in their power to notify its customers when a recall is issued on the vehicle. In the event you own any of the following vehicles and you have questions regarding your car or truck, you can contact Chevrolet at 1-866-694-6546, GMC at 1-866-996-9463, Buick at 1-800-521-7300 and Cadillac at 1-866-982-2339.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153) or go to www.safercar.gov.

Here’s a quick summery of your vehicles currently under recall:

April 1 – 1,340,447 cars affected

NHTSA Campaign Number: 14V153000

Problem:

In the affected vehicles, there may be a sudden reduction in electric power steering (EPS) assist that could occur at any time while driving.

Consequence:

If power steering assist is lost, greater driver effort would be required to steer the vehicle at low speeds, increasing the potential risk of a crash.

Solution:

GM currently doesn’t have the parts in supply to fix these complaints. Owners is going to be notified beginning later this month after they can see dealers for replacement parts.

March 31 – 489,936 vehicles affected

NHTSA Campaign Number: 14V152000

2014 Chevrolet Silverado Light Duty Regular Cab, Double Cab, and Crew Cab 1500 series

2015 Chevrolet Suburban and Tahoe

2014 GMC Sierra Regular Cab, Double Cab, and Crew Cab 1500 Series

2015 GMC Yukon and Yukon XL

Problem:

The niche vehicles could have a transmission oil cooler line that is not securely seated in the fitting.

Consequence:

The oil could talk to a hot surface and cause a vehicle fire if the line is not securely seated and transmission oil leaks from your fitting.

Solution:

GM will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the transmission oil cooler line connection and repair the vehicles, as needed, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on April 28, 2014

March 31 – 174,046 vehicles affected

NHTSA Campaign Number: 14V151000

GM Recall Number: 14079

Models under recall:

2014 and 2013 Chevrolet Cruze vehicles equipped with a 1.4L turbo engine, and manufactured between November2012 and 28, and March 7, 2014

Problem:

Around the affected vehicles, the right front half shaft may fracture and separate.

Consequence:

The car would lose power and coast into a stop in the event the half shaft fractures and separates while driving. When a vehicle by using a fractured half shaft is parked minus the parking brake applied, the automobile could move unexpectedly. Either condition increases the risk of a crash.

Solution:

GM will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and replace the right half shaft, when necessary, free of charge. Parts for the remedy are not on the market today. GM will send an interim letter to owners a few days of April 28, 2014. A second owner letter will be mailed when parts can be purchased. Some vehicles subject to this recall were subject to the recall campaign initiated in 2013. A few of those vehicles were repaired using defective parts. Those owners will be advised that they must have their own vehicles remedied again under this campaign and that finding the earlier recall completed failed to remedy their vehicles

March 27 – 656 vehicles affected

NHTSA Campaign Number: 14V144000

GM’s recall number: 14087

Models under recall:

2014 Cadillac ELR vehicles not designed with adaptive cruise control and manufactured September2013 and 26, through February 14, 2014.

Problem:

In these vehicles, the electronic stability control (ESC) system software may inhibit certain ESC diagnostics, preventing the system from alerting the motorist that the ESC system is partially or fully disabled. As a result, these vehicles fail to conform with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 126, Electronic Stability Control Systems.

Consequence:

Increasing the risk of a crash if the driver is not alerted to an ESC malfunction they might continue driving with a disabled ESC system which may result in loss of directional control.

Solution:

Dealers will recalibrate the Electronic Brake Control Module (EBCM), free of cost. The recall is expected to begin with on April 17, 2014.

February 10 – 2,190,934 vehicles affected

2007 Saturn Sky

2008-2010 Chevrolet Cobalt, Saturn Sky, and Pontiac G5 and Solstice

2008-2011 Chevrolet HHR

Problem:

This defect could affect the safe operation in the airbag system. Until this recall is performed, customers should remove all items using their key rings, leaving only the ignition key. The key fob (if applicable), should also be taken off the key ring.

Consequence:

If the key is not in the run position, the environment bags might not exactly deploy in case the vehicle is involved in a crash, increasing the chance of injury.

Solution:

Dealers will replace the ignition switch, free of charge. Parts are not now available to fix this matter. An interim notification was issued to owners of 2007 and earlier models on March10 and 2014, informing them of your safety defect. Until the recall repairs have been performed, it is vital that customers remove all items off their key rings, leaving simply the vehicle key. The key fob (if applicable), should also be pulled from the key ring.

March 17 – 1,176,407 vehicles affected

NHTSA Campaign Number: 14V118000

GM’s recall number: 14030

Models under recall:

2008-2013 Buick Enclave and GMC Acadia

2009-2013 Chevrolet Traverse

2008-2010 Saturn Outlook

Problem:

In the affected vehicles, increased resistance inside the driver and passenger seat mounted side impact air bag (SIAB) wiring harnesses may result in the SIAB and seat belt pretensioners not deploying in the event of a crash.

Consequence:

Failure of the side impact air bags and seat belt pretensioners to deploy in a crash increase the risk of injury to the driver and front seat occupant.

Solution:

Dealers will replace the affected harness connections with soldered connections, totally free. GM has not yet yet provided a notification schedule. Note: Vehicles repaired as part of Customer Satisfaction Campaign 10085 and special coverage 10335 have already had the subject condition repaired and they are not in the safety recall.

March 17 – 303,013 vehicles affected

NHTSA Campaign Number: 14V117000

GM’s recall number: 14082

Models under recall:

2009-2014 Chevrolet Express and GMC Savana vans manufactured January27 and 2009, through March 7, 2014 with a gross vehicle weight rating of 10,000 pounds and less, and equipped with front passenger air bags.

Problem:

During a frontal impact beneath 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 well 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.

Consequence:

In case there is a crash underneath the air bag deployment threshold, an unbelted front passenger seat occupant has an increased risk of injury.

Solution:

GM has not yet provided a remedy plan or notification schedule.

March 17 – 63,903 vehicles affected

NHTSA Campaign Number: 14V116000

GM’s Recall Number: 14062

Models under recall:

Certain model year 2013-2014 Cadillac XTS vehicles manufactured February14 and 2012, through March 7, 2014.

Problem:

Within the affected vehicles, a cavity plug about the brake booster pump connector may dislodge allowing corrosion of the brake booster pump relay connector.

Consequence:

The corrosion of your brake booster pump relay connector might cause a resistive short and melt the connector, increasing the risk of a fire.

Solution:

Dealers will apply sealant to the connector cavity plugs, re-route the vacuum pump vent hose and replace the front body wiring harnesses as needed, totally free. GM has not yet provided a notification schedule.

February 21 – 355 vehicles affected

NHTSA Campaign Number: 14V092000

GM’s recall number: 14048

Models under recall:

Certain model year 2014 Buick Verano, Regal and LaCrosse and Enclave, and Chevrolet Malibu, Cruze and Impala and Traverse, and GMC Acadia vehicles designed with automatic transmissions.

Problem:

The transmission shift cable adjuster may disengage from the transmission shift lever. As such, these vehicles do not conform to Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 102, Transmission Shift Lever Sequence, Starter Interlock, and Transmission Braking Effect. They also fail to conform to FMVSS number 114, Theft Protection and Rollaway Prevention.

Consequence:

A driver may be unable to shift gear positions and the indicated shift position may not represent the gear position the automobile is in if a vehicle’s shift cable disengages from the transmission shift lever. The car transmission might not be in the PARK gear position, even though should a disengagement occur whilst the vehicle is being driven, when the driver would go to stop and park the automobile, the driver could possibly shift the lever on the PARK position. If the vehicle is not from the PARK position there is a risk the vehicle will roll away as the driver and other occupants exit the automobile or anytime thereafter. A car rollaway increases the risk of injury to exiting occupants and bystanders.
