GM Announces Three Vehicle Recalls
OSHAWA – General Motors (GM: NYSE) today announced four safety recalls covering 57,706 vehicles in Canada.
- Dealers will replace the driver’s side air bag inflator in 4,066 2013-2014 model year Chevrolet Cruze sedans in Canada. The inflator in the driver’s front air bag may rupture and/or the air bag may not inflate during air bag deployment. A rupture could propel metal pieces of the inflator into the vehicle cabin, possibly striking and seriously injuring the driver or other vehicle occupants. Additionally, if the inflator does not inflate the air bag, there is an increased risk of injury to the driver. GM is aware of one injury related to the issue.
- Dealers will recalibrate transfer case control module software in 53,607 full-size pickup trucks and SUVs in Canada. Affected are four-wheel-drive versions of the 2014-2015 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra; the 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban; and the 2015 GMC Yukon and Yukon XL.
In these vehicles, the transfer case may electronically switch to neutral without input from the driver. If this occurs while a vehicle is in motion, no power will go to the wheels. If the vehicle is stopped or parked, it may roll away if the parking brake is not set. GM is not aware of any crashes or injuries related to this issue.
- Dealers will replace the two rear shock absorbers in 33 2014 model year Chevrolet Corvettes in Canada with the FE1 or FE3 suspension to repair a possible insufficient weld in the rear shocks that could lead to a fracture and/or reduce the shocks’ service life. GM is not aware of any crashes or injuries related to this issue.
