GM Issues Another Round of Various Recalls

GM logoVehicles Affected: More than 124,000 GM vehicles, including model-year 2013-14 Buick Encore crossovers and Cadillac ATS cars; 2014 Cadillac CTS and ELR cars; 2014 Chevrolet Caprice and SS cars; and 2014-15 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra pickup trucks.

The Problem: Due to an incomplete weld on the seat hook bracket assembly, the front seats in the affected vehicles may not stay secured in place during a high-load condition such as a crash, increasing the risk of an injury. We first reported on this issue on July 23.

The Fix: GM will begin notifying owners late this month, and dealers will inspect the seat hook bracket assembly weld and, if necessary, replace the lower seat track for free.

The Problem: Due to a poor electrical ground connection to the power steering control module, the vehicle may lose power steering assist during start up or while driving; this could require greater driver effort to steer the vehicle at low speeds, increasing the risk of a crash.

The Fix: GM will begin notifying owners late this month, and dealers will clean paint from behind the ground stud nut and update the power steering control module software for free.

    Jerry, I can’t believe my non Z51 2014 Vette is having a recall to replace the rear shocks. I’da thunk GM finally had it right on Vettes.
