1. On September 13, 2015, Rayven Barfield parked her 2001 GMC Yukon in a driveway. She turned the ignition switch off, but left the keys in the ignition.

    Later she heard someone screaming as the the SUV rolled away with a child in the driver's seat. What happens next is unimaginable.

    "The plaintiff says she was running toward the Yukon and saw the driver's side door open as the SUV rolled down the driveway. Joseph Jr. fell or jumped out of the SUV, causing the front tire of the large SUV to run over the 3-year-old who was pronounced dead at a local hospital about an hour later."

    The parents of the boy have filed a lawsuit saying defects in the gear shifting and ignition/park interlock systems. Let's hope something good comes out of this horrible tragedy.

  2. GM manufactured cargo vans that are either missing mirrors, or have improperly shaped mirrors.

    Both are violations of federal safety laws.The 2016-2017 Chevrolet Express and 2016 GMC Savana were manufactured without inside rear-view mirrors and with right-hand convex exterior rear-view mirrors. That's a problem because federal safety regulations say the vans are required to have either inside rear-view mirrors or both left- and right-hand flat exterior rear-view mirrors.

    The recall only affects 40 vans, but still the GM design team should take a long, hard look in the ... well, you know.

  3. 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.

  4. The 2013 Terrain has been added to a windshield wiper corrosion recall

    that was recently expanded. GM ordered a windshield wiper recall that was limited to Canada’s “corrosion provinces” back in June. Well, turns out we use plenty of road salt here in the US of A as well, so the recall is expanding._

  5. GM isn't arguing against claims that the 2014-2015 GMC Sierra has some terrible headlights

    , just that the lawsuits against them don't prove it. GM argues truck owners don't allege the lights malfunction in any way, so the case should be dismissed because other lawsuits have been dismissed because of similar claims.

    The plaintiffs are worried ineffective lights will lead to more nighttime crashes, but GM says they have no data to back it up. If the automaker actually needs data for that, then I'm not sure which is dimmer --- the headlights or GM itself.

  6. GM admits they dipped their hands into the fuel economy jar and pulled out a couple more MPGs than they should have for the 2016 Acadia.

    Well, I guess dinner is spoiled now. While exact amounts are unknown, owners should soon expect to receive compensation ranging from prepaid debit cards to extended warranties.

  7. General Motors' Technical Service Bulletin (TSB 15285C)

    could be of great interest to 2011 Terrain owners who've been complaining about excessive oil consumption.

    _Chevy and GMC dealers were told in previous technical service bulletins to install updated engine control module calibration and perform an oil consumption test. This time dealers are told to diagnose the problem and replace the pistons ... General Motors says repairs will be made free of charge based on warranty coverage extended to 7.5 years or 120,000 miles, whichever comes first. The coverage begins from the date of sale of the SUV.

    This is great news for Terrain owners.

  8. 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.…
