Suspension & Steering, October 14, 2005

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Some vehicles have a power steering hose that was not made to specification and may rupture under extreme steering conditions. If this were to happen, power steering assist would be lost and steering effort would increase. On vehicles equipped with hydro-boost brakes, braking effort would also increase. If power steering fluid were to spray on hot engine parts, an engine compartment fire could also occur. Dealers will inspect the power steering hose(s) for the two suspect date codes and replace them if needed. The recall began October 14, 2005. The GM recall number is 05086.

For Models: Cadillac Escalade, Chevrolet Avalanche 1500, Chevrolet Avalanche 2500, Chevrolet Silverado 1500, Chevrolet Silverado 1500 HD, Chevrolet Silverado 2500, Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD, Chevrolet Silverado 3500, Chevrolet Silverado SS, Chevrolet Suburban 1500, Chevrolet Suburban 2500, Chevrolet Tahoe, GMC Sierra 1500, GMC Sierra 1500 HD, GMC Sierra 2500, GMC Sierra 2500 HD, GMC Sierra 3500, GMC Sierra Denali, GMC Yukon, Hummer H2

Body, Interior & Misc., July 21, 2005

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The second row center seat belt routing may make it difficult to position correctly on smaller passengers. If the seat belt rides up to fit around the abdomen, the risk of internal injury is increased in a crash. Dealers will cut the guide loop, remove a portion of the loop, and the remaining sides should be folded over and secured with a retainer. The recall began July 21, 2005. The GM recall number is 05037.

For Models: Cadillac CTS

Body, Interior & Misc., May 20, 2005

RepairPal Expert Overview:

An interaction between the sensing and diagnostic module and the vehicle's electrical system may cause the drivers' frontal air bag and/or the roof-mounted side impact air bag to deploy when the key is turned to the "on" position. A person may receive minor injuries if the air bag deploys without warning. Dealers will replace the sensing and diagnostic module free of charge. The recall began May 20, 2005. The GM recall number is 05004.

For Models: Cadillac XLR, Pontiac Grand Prix

Drive Train, March 8, 2005

RepairPal Expert Overview:

In temperatures between -22 and -40 degrees F, and if one of the accelerator pedal return springs breaks, the engine may not return to idle within three seconds as required. If this were to happen, more braking effort may be needed to stop the vehicle. Dealers will replace the accelerator pedal assembly. The recall began March 8, 2005. The GM recall number is 05018.

For Models: Cadillac Escalade, Chevrolet Avalanche 1500, Chevrolet Avalanche 2500, Chevrolet Silverado 1500, Chevrolet Silverado 1500 HD, Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD, Chevrolet Silverado 3500, Chevrolet Silverado SS, Chevrolet Suburban 1500, Chevrolet Suburban 2500, Chevrolet Tahoe, GMC Sierra 1500, GMC Sierra 1500 HD, GMC Sierra 2500 HD, GMC Sierra 3500, GMC Sierra Denali, GMC Yukon, GMC Yukon XL 1500, GMC Yukon XL 2500, GMC Yukon XL Denali

Drive Train, February 22, 2005

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Under certain conditions, the shift lever position indicator located in the instrument cluster may not illuminate. If the indicator does not illuminate, the driver may not know which gear the vehicle is in. This could result in the vehicle moving in an unintended direction, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will reprogram the instrument panel cluster to correct this concern. This recall is expected to begin on February 14, 2005. The General Motors recall number is 05023.

 

For Models: Cadillac XLR, Chevrolet Corvette

Brakes, January 18, 2005

RepairPal Expert Overview:

On certain vehicles, the rear brake lines may be close, or come into contact with the exhaust manifold. This could heat the lines and boil the brake fluid; the lines could also wear from contact. If the brake fluid boils, or leaks, effectiveness of the rear brakes would be reduced and a crash could occur.

Dealers will inspect the left engine exhaust manifold clip for alignment and placement on the body mounted stud. If it's correct, they will reposition the clip on the brake lines and reinstall the clip on the stud. Dealers will ensure that both rear brake lines have the proper clearance to the left exhaust pipe and the machining tab on the rear differential housing will be removed. The brake lines in the affected areas will be inspected for damage and will be replaced if there are signs of wear-through on the nylon overcoating. The recall began January 18, 2005. The GM recall number is 04086.

For Models: Cadillac Escalade, Chevrolet Avalanche 1500, Chevrolet Avalanche 2500, Chevrolet Silverado 1500, Chevrolet Silverado 1500 HD, Chevrolet Silverado 2500, Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD, Chevrolet Silverado 3500, Chevrolet Silverado SS, GMC Sierra 1500, GMC Sierra 1500 HD, GMC Sierra 2500, GMC Sierra 2500 HD, GMC Sierra 3500, GMC Sierra C3, GMC Sierra Denali

Body, Interior & Misc., September 18, 2004

Summary: ON CERTAIN PICKUP TRUCKS AND SPORT UTILITY VEHICLES, THE GALVANIZED STEEL TAILGATE SUPPORT CABLES THAT RETAIN THE TAILGATE IN THE FULL OPEN (HORIZONTAL) POSITION MAY CORRODE, WEAKEN, AND EVENTUALLY FRACTURE.

For Models: Cadillac CTS, Cadillac XLR, Chevrolet Corvette

Suspension & Steering, August 25, 2004

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The washer for the control arm ball stud may have been made of the wrong material, and may fracture and fall out, or become loose. The control arm may separate from the steering knuckle due to disengagement of the tapered stud, causing the vehicle to drop at that corner. In extreme situations, the wheel may separate completely from the vehicle. Either condition would impair handling and increase the chances of a crash. Dealers will inspect the torque on the ball stud joints on all front and rear lower control arms. If the torque is not to specification, the ball stud, knuckle, and nut will be replaced. If the torque is to specification, the dealers will replace only the ball stud nut and washer. The recall began August 24, 2004. The GM recall number is 04043.

For Models: Cadillac Escalade, Chevrolet Avalanche 1500, Chevrolet Avalanche 2500, Chevrolet Express 1500, Chevrolet Express 2500, Chevrolet Express 3500, Chevrolet Silverado 1500, Chevrolet Silverado 1500 HD, Chevrolet Silverado 2500, Chevrolet Silverado 2500 HD, Chevrolet Silverado 3500, Chevrolet Silverado SS, Chevrolet Suburban 1500, Chevrolet Suburban 2500, Chevrolet Tahoe, GMC Sierra 1500, GMC Sierra 1500 HD, GMC Sierra 2500, GMC Sierra 2500 HD, GMC Sierra 3500, GMC Sierra Denali, GMC Yukon, GMC Yukon XL 1500, GMC Yukon XL 2500, GMC Yukon XL Denali, Hummer H2

Brakes, June 18, 2004

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The hydro-boost housing relief valve bore may be out of specification. The seal may fracture as a result, which may reduce braking assist and slightly increase the steering effort while braking. Under certain conditions, more braking effort will be required to stop the vehicle. Dealers will replace the hydro-boost relief valve. The recall began June 18, 2004. The GM recall number is 04004.
