Recall 17V033000

Passenger Side Rear View Mirror Not Proper For Vehicle

Recall Details

The passenger side mirror may be convex instead of flat, causing the driver to misjudge distance of other vehicles. Dealers will replace the convex mirror with the proper flat style, and will provide a new page for the owner's manual free of charge to resolve the concern.

Our Quick Take

The passenger side door mounted rear view mirror may not be the proper flat style mirror as required. Instead, it may be convex, which could possibly cause the driver to misjudge the distance of other vehicles. This would increase risk of a crash.

What Should You Do?

Recall repairs on your Chevrolet must be performed by a General Motors dealership. General Motors will notify known owners of affected vehicles beginning in February 2017. If you do not receive a notification, but wish to check to see if your vehicle is included, please contact one of your local General Motors dealerships. They will also check for any other incomplete recalls on your vehicle. For best results, be prepared to provide your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to the service department consultant you speak with.

Summary
General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain 2016-2017 Chevrolet Suburban HD vehicles. These vehicles were assembled with a convex right-hand outside mirror, instead of with a non-convex (flat) right-hand outside mirror. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 111, "Rearview Mirrors."
Consequence
If equipped with the incorrect right-side rear-view mirror, the driver may misjudge the distance of other vehicles, increasing the risk of a crash.
Remedy
GM will notify owners, and dealers will replace the convex mirror with a non-convex mirror and provide a new page for the owner's manual with the customer notification letter, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in February 2017. Owners may contact GM customer service at 1-800-222-1020. GM's number for this recall is 17017.
Notify
Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
