It’s bad enough to have your truck recalled because the brake pedal might fall off.
It gets worse when you find out there’s a good chance your truck wasn’t properly fixed … and the brake pedal still might fall off. When a 2015 Silverado that had previously been “repaired” as part of the recall was brought back in for service, it raised a big ole’ red flag.
The automaker then learned the truck had been repaired under a February 2016 recall, something that caused the automaker to open a formal investigation.

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"
