Chevrolet Recalls

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The vehicles being recalled are equipped with an electric power steering (EPS) assist system. The EPS can fail unexpectedly while driving. If this were to occur, steering ability would be maintained but much greater effort would be necessary to steer the vehicle, especially at slow speeds. One of four remedies will be applied depending on the model and year. Parts are not yet available so expect a second notification when they are.

Drive Train, March 31, 2014
RepairPal Expert Overview:

These Cruze models are being recalled because the right front axle shaft can break. If this were to occur while driving the vehicle would coast to a stop. If parked in this condition without the parking brake applied, the vehicle could roll unexpectedly. Either case has an increased risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect the affected vehicles and replace the right axle assembly as necessary. Replacement parts are not yet ready, a second letter will be sent when they become available and the recall can be completed. This is an expansion of a previous recall, parts previously installed may need to be replaced again.

Increased resistance in the front seat mounted side impact air bag (SIAB) wiring harness can result in the SIAB and seat belt pretensioners not deploying as expected in the event of a crash, increasing the risk of personal injury. Dealers will replace the affected harness connections with soldered connections to correct this concern.

Certain vehicles are being recalled because if a crash were to occur not requiring deployment of the front airbags, the head of an unbelted front seat passenger could hit the instrument panel, resulting in personal injury because the panel may not sufficiently absorb the impact. As of this writing, General Motors is still working on a remedy for this concern.

RepairPal Expert Overview:

1558 vehicles are being recalled because one of the straps securing the fuel tank may not have been manufactured correctly. Insufficient welds could cause the strap to separate from the vehicle. A broken strap would put additional pressure on the second strap, increasing its risk of failure. Should both straps fail, the fuel tank would come loose, increasing the risk of a fuel leak. Any fuel leak increases the risk of a fire. Dealers will inspect the affected fuel strap and bracket and repair it as necessary.
