Chevrolet Express 1500 Recalls
The steering gear pitman shaft may fail, resulting in loss of steering ability.
In the event of a crash, the front passenger airbag may not fully deploy as designed.
A damaged rear brake hose may leak fluid, reducing rear braking effectiveness and increasing the risk of a crash.
The driver may not be able to control the heating and ventilation for the vehicle. If this happens when the defrost system is needed, visibility could be reduced, which could lead to a crash.
The frame of the vehicle is made up of rails that are fastened together. These frame rails are manufactured to a certain length, width, and height. On some vehicles, the frame may be too wide, which will cause it to touch the fuel tank. This can cause a fuel leak.
The all wheel drive (AWD) system uses a transfer case, which is a component that transfers power from the front wheels to the rear wheels as necessary depending on driving conditions. The transfer case is driven by a chain, which could break if the case was built with incorrect parts. A failed chain will not allow the vehicle to be secure in "Park."
The seat belts may not latch or unlatch. In a crash, a seat occupant may not be properly restrained, increasing the risk of injury.
The rear brakes may continue to drag even if the brake pedal is released. If the brakes do not release fully, they can overheat, which could increase stopping distance and possibly result in a crash.
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.
On certain vans, the front and rear seat belts will not latch or unlatch.
