Chevrolet Equinox Recalls
Certain vehicles originally sold in, or currently registered in, the states of Arkansas, Arizona, California, Nevada, Oklahoma, or Texas are being recalled because the plastic supply or return port on the fuel pump module may crack, resulting in a fuel leak. Fuel leakage in the presence of an ignition source may result in a fire. Dealers will replace the fuel pump module to correct this concern. The General Motors recall number is 12190.
The tire pressure monitoring system is designed to illuminate the tire pressure warning light when the tire pressure in any one tire is 25% below the recommended cold tire pressure. On these vehicles, the light will not illuminate until the tire pressure is more than 25% below the recommend cold tire pressure. Underinflated tires can result in the tire overheating, which could lead to a blowout and a possible crash. Underinflated tires also affect tire wear, vehicle handling, and fuel economy. Dealers will update the Body Control Module software to correct this concern. The General Motors recall number is 11261.
General Motors is recalling certain 2011 Cadillac SRX, Chevrolet Equinox, and GMC Terrain vehicles because one or both of the front safety belt buckle anchors may separate during a crash. As a result, the safety belt system may not properly restrain the front seat occupants, increasing the risk of injury. Dealers will modify the affected safety belt buckles as necessary.
