RepairPal Expert Overview
Our Quick Take:
Certain vehicles were equipped with weak rear suspension bolts that may break under high loads. Causing the rear wheel to not be properly retained and may result in increased risk of accidents.
What Should You Do?
GM will contact customers of affected vehicles beginning February 9, 2005. If you have not been contacted, notice any unusual looseness in your rear wheels and feel your vehicle falls under this recall. You should contact your local dealership. It helps to have your VIN Vehicle Identification Number ready when doing so.
Certain passenger vehicles were equipped with rear suspension knuckle bolts that are not up to specifications. These may fracture, causing the rear wheels to steer in or out, thus leading to an increased chance of an accident. The dealer will replace both of these bolts free of charge. The GM recall # is 05020
