Illumination of the Check Engine Light can be caused by a loose or worn gas cap.

Front brake rotors can wear causing a pulsation felt in the brake pedal. Our technicians often recommend replacement of the front rotors and brake pads as the best option to correct this condition.

The front struts may show signs of wear, or be excessively bouncy ride at freeway speeds. This may begin to occur at around 75,000 miles.

The tire and loading information label on the driver's side door frame may be inaccurate. A misprinted label could lead to overloading of the vehicle, which could possibly lead to tire failure and a crash. Owners will be provided with corrected labels and installation instructions. At customers' request, a dealer can install the label for them. The recall began March 31, 2006. The GM recall number is 05109.

Certain sport utility vehicles fail to conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Safety Standard # 135 "Passenger Car Brake Systems" To meet the standard, vehicles must not move for 5 minutes when stopped on a steep hill with the parking brake applied and the vehicle in neutral. Some of these vehicles failed this test. When the parking brake is released the driver may notice unintended braking while accelerating, decelerating or coasting. This could lead to unintended vehicle movement and cause an accident. The dealer will inspect each rear parking brake caliper and replace free of charge if slippage is noticed. The GM recall # is 05059

The warning lights on the dash stay on, all t...
