GM did the right thing by recalling ineffective seat belts a few years back. It just would have been so much better if they used the right replacement parts.
Now to be fair, only 2,800 of the over 1 million recalled vehicles ended up with the wrong pretensioner cable assemblies but considering the last recalls were in 2016 and 2018 this probably won't sit well with the owners driving around with the wrong seat belts for the last few years.…keep reading article "GM Accidentally Gave 2,800 Vehicles The Wrong Seat Belts in Previous Recalls"
You’ve barely had a chance to get your 2019 truck dirty before buzzkill GM comes knocking for a recall of damaged airbag control modules.
The busted module means the passenger side airbag might not deploy in a crash … or maybe it will? No-one really knows and that’s kind of the point.
The recall covers the 2019 Chevy Silverado 1500 / GMC Sierra 1500 and is expected to begin on December 26th. I’m glad they didn’t plan it for the 24th, the traffic can be awful with all those grandma and reindeer collisions.keep reading article "GM Shipped 2019 Trucks with Damaged Airbags"
Low voltage is temporarily disabling the power steering in more than 1 million GM trucks and SUVs
, prompting a massive recall for the 2015 model year. A near carbon-copy recall was made for similar vehicles back in August 2017. The major difference? It was 2014 model year.

The modules that help control the airbags and seat belt pretensioners in a crash aren't working in 4 million GM vehicles, prompting a massive recall
that includes the GMC Sierra 1500/2500/3500, and Yukon. GM received an internal report in May relating to the crash of a 2014 Chevrolet Silverado where the driver’s frontal airbag and seatbelt pretensioners were alleged not to have deployed.
GM opened an investigation into the issue in June and contacted Delphi, the supplier of the sensing and diagnostic module. The automaker gathered additional electronic data recorder records from other incidents where the same crash symptoms occurred.
The modules will need to be reprogrammed, GM just doesn't know when yet.keep reading article "GMC Part of a Massive Recall for Failing Airbag and Seat Belt Sensors"
GM is recalling nearly 4,800 new trucks and SUVs
, and telling their owners to stop driving until their front upper control arms can be repaired. The automaker blames the problem on a bad weld near the control arm bushing, a problem the automaker discovered on a GMC Yukon XL Denali. The faulty weld can cause the control arm to change shape and eventually separate.
If you own a 2016 GMC Sierra, Yukon, or Yukon XL you should call your local service center right away. While you're on the phone, ask them about getting a tow for repairs and how to get a loaner vehicle in the meantime.…keep reading article "Some GMC Owners Asked to Stop Driving Until Suspension Can Be Repaired"
