General Motors New 2015 Line-Up… of RECALLS!

Jun 17, 2014

GM Recalls - General Motors Recalls

General Recall, uh…we mean, General Motors is year again pushing out another blast of recalls affecting 3.36 million vehicles built between 2000 and 2014.  The first recall affects the ignition switches which can be turned out of the run position due to the weight of the keyring.  Instead of replacing the ignitions, GM will be drilling a small hole in the key to offset the weight, and prevent this from happening… sounds a little odd, really odd that a considering there have been eight crashes and six injuries due to the negligence, that a simple 6 millimeter hole will completely solve this issue.  In the meantime, keep your keychains to the bare neccessities... a bottle opener, swiss army knife, flashlight or carabiner.  

Affected models are:

2000 - 2005 Cadillac Deville

2004 - 2005 Buick Regal LS and GS

2004 - 2011 Cadillac DTS

2005 - 2009 Buick Lacrosse

2006 - 2008 Chevrolet Monte Carlo

2006 - 2011 Buick Luceme

2006 - 2014 Chevrolet Impala

 

Additional recalls fro General Motors include a faulty shift cable which may prevent the downshift of automatic transmissions.  

Affected Models: 

2013 - 2014 Cadillac ATS

2014 Cadillac CTS

 

Necessary power steering hose clamp inspection to make sure it is attached properly to the power steering pump.  Failure will result in a loss of power brakes and steering in the vehicle.  

Affected Models:

All-new heavy-duty Chevrolet Pickups

All-new heavy-duty GMC Pickups 

 

Possible faulty gasket that could lead to unwarranted deployment of rollover airbags.  

Affected models: 

2001 Cadillac AWD CTS Sedans

 

Faulty side airbag needing to be replaced on the passenger's seat because an "unbelted child and door trim" could impede the airbag.  How they discovered that an "unbelted child" in the passenger seat wouldn't allow the bag to deploy is a little unsettling… leaving us to wonder who would put a child in the passenger seat of a super sports car…

Affected Model: 

Chevrolet Corvette Stingray models with Competition Seats only 

 

184 pickups are being recalled because General Motors didn't bother to install attachments for the mats int eh vinyl floors and all-weather floor mats, leaving them at risk to slide or move under the driver's feet, blocking the pedals.  

Affected Models:

2014 - 2015 GMC Sierra Pickup

2014 - 2015 Chevrolet Silverado Pickup
