Automotive Defect Cases - General Motors SUV and Truck Recall
General Motors has expanded the recall of its 2011 trucks and SUVs. The issue with these vehicles is that the rear axles have been known to lock unexpectedly. The GM recall with respect to the GM SUVs and trucks dates back to December 2010. Because of the rear axle problem, GM has recalled certain 2011 trucks and SUVs because of the increased risk of a driver’s inability to control the vehicle when in motion.
In addition, new and used GMC vehicles recalled include the GMC Arcadia, GMC Canyon, GMC Envoy, GMC Savana, GMC Sierra 1500, GMC Sierra 1500 Hybrid, GMC Sierra 2500 HD, GMC Sierra 3500 HD and GMC Yukon XL. The recalls which include many of these GMC trucks are related to the safety of occupants and drivers.
The recalls for the listed GMC vehicles are varied. Some deal with a transmission shift cable adjuster problem, sudden hood openings, a wiring problem with a seatbelt harness, the non-deployment of the “side impact restraints”, which includes side airbags, possible tie-rods separation and loss of steering, fire possibilities, fuel tank and fuel pump problems and the ignition issues. Some of the GMC vehicles including the GMC Savana Cargo, GMC Terrain, GMC Yukon Hybrid have no reported recalls for these vehicles.
In all, General Motors has recalled up to 55 million of its vehicles, mostly because of the defective ignition switches in many of its model vehicles.
