In a seemingly unending series of recalls, GM announce three more recalls today. This set involves pickup trucks, SUVs, Corvettes, and police cars.
With every announcement, I wonder “Is this the last?”
But here we go again.
The Wall Street Journal reports GM Discloses Yet Another Recall.
General Motors Co. disclosed three new recalls on Friday covering more than 473,600 vehicles, including some of its latest Corvette sports cars, amid stepped up safety reviews.
The nation’s largest auto maker recalled 466,940 full-size pickup trucks and sport-utility vehicles to recalibrate software in the transfer case which may electronically switch to neutral without input from the driver. GM said it is not aware of any crashes or injuries related to the problem. The recall covers certain model years of the Chevrolet Silverado, GMC Sierra and SUVs including the Chevrolet Tahoe.
n a second recall, GM said its dealers will inspect, and replace if needed, the windshield wiper module assembly in about 4,800 of the 2013 and 2014 model year Chevrolet Caprice police cars and 2014 Chevrolet SS sport sedans. If the motor gear teeth become stripped, the wipers may not operate. GM said it isn’t aware of any crashes or injuries related to this issue.
Lastly, dealers will replace the two rear shock absorbers in 1,939 of the 2014 model year Chevrolet Corvettes in the U.S. due to the potential cracking. GM said it is not aware of any crashes or injuries related to the problem.
20 Million Recalls and Counting
GM’s recall total has now reached 20 million. Clearly GM wants to get every conceivable bit of bad news regarding recalls out of the way. Thus, I suspect the end of recalls is near.
