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.

Drive Train, January 2, 2013

RepairPal Expert Overview:

All late model vehicles are equipped with a "Shift interlock" system that prevents vehicles with and automatic transmission from being shifted out of the Park position under certain conditions. Some of these vehicles are being recalled because they may have been assembled with a broken park lock cable or a malformed steering column lock actuator gear. Failure of these components can allow the shifter to be moved out of the Park position with the ignition key removed or in the off position. This can cause the vehicle to roll away unexpectedly increasing the risk of injury or a crash. Dealers will inspect the recalled vehicles and replace the steering column as necessary.

 

 

For Models: Chevrolet Colorado, GMC Canyon

Body, Interior & Misc., December 19, 2012

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The front hood is secured by two latches, the primary and secondary latch. The secondary latch prevents the hood from opening when the primary latch has been activated. These vehicles are being recalled because some may have been assembled without a secondary hood latch. With this latch missing, if the primary latch is not properly engaged the hood could open unexpectedly while driving. This could obstruct the view of the driver, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the hood on the affected vehicles to correct this concern. 

For Models: Buick Rainier, Chevrolet Trailblazer, GMC Envoy, Isuzu Ascender, Saab 9-7x

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Vehicles first sold, or currently registered, in certain states where salt is used to de-ice the roads are being recalled because fluid may enter the driver's door module, causing corrosion that could result in a short in the circuit board. A short may cause the power door lock and power window switches to function intermittently or become inoperative. The short may also cause overheating, which could melt components of the door module, producing an odor, smoke, or a fire. As of this time, the remedy plan is still being finalized and a notification schedule has not been determined. The GM recall number is 12180.
