All Car Recalls

RepairPal Expert Overview:

A software failure in the parking brake system has resulted in incomplete disengagement of the parking brake pads from the rotors, causing excessive brake wear and heat leading to a potential fire hazard. Increased heat in the brakes limits the ability to stop effectively, and accelerating under braking can cause damage to the transmission. Dealers will reprogram the braking module with new software to remedy the problem.

These vehicles have power steering units which may fail while driving.  Loss of power steering is most noticeable while driving slowly or parking, resulting in a heavier feel at the steering wheel. Slow speed maneuvers can become difficult and potentially unsafe. Dealers will replace the affected components free of charge. This recall is an expansion of an earlier GM recall (14V-153) to cover additional vehicles.  

RepairPal Expert Overview:

A problem with the steering column may cause a failure in the upper steering bearing, which can lead to increased play in the steering wheel and a loss of vehicle control, either of which can result in an unsafe driving condition. Dealers will replace affected steering wheel column parts free of charge.

RepairPal Expert Overview:

A software problem turns off the front parking lights (side lamps) after approximately 5 minutes in affected vehicles. These are an important part of keeping others aware of a driver's presence, and vehicle safety requires they remain lit while in use. Dealers will update software that controls the parking lights to correct this concern.

A mixture of snow/water and salt can seep through the interior carpet on the drivers side resulting in an electrical short in a wiring harness connector under the carpet.

In certain vehicles the hood release cable may have been installed incorrectly, as a result the latch may not fully engage, leaving the secondary latch in the open position with the hood is closed. If the primary hood latch is released and the secondary latch fails while driving the hood could open unexpectedly, blocking the driver's vision and increasing the risk of a crash. To correct this concern dealers will modify the angle of the hood release mechanism to provide additional length to the release cable.
