Recall Alert: 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, GMC Sierra 1500

2014-GMC-Sierra II

Vehicles Affected: Approximately 22,000 model-year 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and GMC Sierra 1500 pickup trucks.

The Problem: The Detroit News is reporting that pickups with manual front reclining seatbacks may not lock during rear-end crashes, so the headrests may not protects passengers as they should. Canadian officials discovered the problem, which affects vehicles sold in the U.S., Canada and Mexico. GM representatives said they are not aware of any injuries or crashes caused by this problem.

The Fix: Dealers will inspect the seatbacks and adjust them, if needed.

What Owners Should Do: Owners can call Chevrolet at 800-630-2438 or GMC at 866-996-9463.



Nothing wrong with mine.

@truckguy: What, have you already been rear-ended? Forces present during normal driving are nothing compared to those present during a collision.

Mine is fine as well, but I have to come clean. Mine has electric reclining seats :)
Love that truck.

You probably won't know if its fine until you get rear ended, then you will now for sure.

You should get it inspected whether it works or no.

IS anyone else relieved that this is the first recall though? The fix is adjustments to the seatback, not replacing parts it sounds like.

Ford and Ram had launch problems with their new models over the past several years as well, so I'm not terribly worried.

Depends how the "Canadian officials" discovered the problem. Where they crashing vehicles or just normal operation? Apparently the dealers can inspect to see if there's a problem so I'm thinking it's the latter.


Michigan Bob, sounds like you are a troll by asking for it to start.

Good thing they caught it in time. good for chevy.

wheres all the chevy guys that bashed Ram for their recall, now its all ok

LOLOL!!! Nice GovtMoCo Sierra up top. The POSTER CHILD for Government Motors, Obama, wasteful spending (NO COMPANY NEEDS 2 TRUCKS on the TAXPAYERS DIME) and RECALLS.

The world will CONTINUE to buy Dodge and Ford trucks in Increasing amounts. Chevrolet trucks are all but dead now and GovtMoCo trucks always sucked.

I would say"caught it in time" if it already made it to dealers. Catching it in time is before it leave the manufacture.

You don't own a 2014 truck

After reports of problems with the seats and some passing Federal regulations and some not passing, a quality inspector "threw his weight against the front driver's seat" and the seat moved even though the manual recliner mechanism was locked and should not have moved. 5 star safety?

Michigan Bob is the Legendary Troll on PUTC. Good luck on future Troll endeavors.

Oh boy!

Talking about the seats, I looked at a Sierra this weekend. The captains chairs with the center console has a ton more seat travel then the beanch seats. I looked at a bench truck and my knees where to the dash, then when I looked at one with the center console and captains chairs I had a ton more room so I though it was interesting the differance in seat travel between seats.

I'll inspect mine

And so it begins! SSDD.

NEW!, IMPROVED!!, BETTER THAN EVER!!! turns out to be SSDD, year after year, decade after decade.

High Desert CAT, What does SSDD mean?

I KNEW IT WAS JUST A MATTER OF TIME before Frank would show up and pollute this thread with his MINDLESS GARBAGE. As I have said before, I CALL THEM LIKE I SEE THEM AND DON'T MINCE MY WORDS!!! LET IT BE WRITTEN....LET IT BE DONE!


@ GM the company that I own does . and the 18 year old kids that drive them smash in to each other every day pulling out of the yard.

Speaking about rear-end crashes, what ever happened to Richard Simmons?

PUTC please get Michigan Bobs IP address and ban him from this site forever.

@Mike get Michigan Bob off the site? I say get him a psychiatrist…he thinks he is the pharaoh of Egypt. Considering the state of Egypt these days maybe a moron like Michigan Bob could do a better job. “Let it be written, let it be done” what a bonehead…lol

Maybe his wife should be pharaoh; I heard she is quite fond of parting her seas ;-)

PUTC please get Michigan Bobs IP address and ban him from this site forever.

I make a motion to get you banned Mike. Leave Michigan Bob alone. The man just speaks his mind, can't fault him for that.

^Michigan Bob's posting, no wait, it's johnny doe. He has not came back ever since ALL1 laid a good one on him.

Way to go ALL1!!!!!

@Frank - Speaking about “laid a good one” have you seen the new Miley Cyrus video?

@Lou - Have you seen the new Miley Cyrus parody video by Hulk Hogan?

It is hard to ban the IP adresses of trolls, stalkers and molesters like Fake Lou etc because they use multiple IP addresses. You ban one IP and they find another one to use.

We need someone reading thse blogs all of the time and deleting any posts. Mke Levine was able to keep things under control, why not the current staff of PUTC?

Recall blogs should be closed to comments as most of the time they turn into fanboy bashfests.

@Lou BC- So do monthly sales, I like to see them but I wish they were closed to comments.

@ Frank I am not Michigan Bob or Franks a troll. Yes I have posted since then. ALL1 didn't lay a good one on me, we just agree to disagree on the Eco Turd being in a truck.

As for the recall 22,000 for a seat and 800 for air bags not many at all, so far way under the number of Ram's new trucks that have been recalled. Every first model normally has a lot of recalls no matter the brand.

"Every first model normally has a lot of recalls no matter the brand."

Then why did you constantly bash the EB when it first came out and called it junk, and now that it's got some defect's it's junk but yet you spew the above quote for your beloved GM Junk,

Get real motherf****!!!!

ALL1 called you out on your BS lies, and quite frankly, I had a good laugh as well as other fellow Truck owners.

The people like get cheap they get a ford,people like to get quality they get a gm ,nomather what ford llover you said this is the reality.......

@Frank It wasn't BS lies I posted links with proof to back up my information straight from Ford websites. If you wasn't so damn busy Trolling people like a 5 year old child you would of noticed that the links had 2012 and 2013 Ford Eco Busts with problems still.

Frank grow up stop trying to start stuff.


Nope, I'm right, you are wrong. Deal with it, please with all due respect, please continue to make a fool of yourself.

President TROLL!

Keep the blog comments open and take it to the next level.

To take it to the next level PUTC should have their own call in talk radio show so people like jon doe and Frank and Michigan Bob and others can join in and battle it out.



No way will I stoop down to there there level.

Mark Williams should start a podcost on pickup trucks.

Mike Levine can be the first guest.

This would be a great idea.


Frank is the RESIDENT DOUCHEBAG OF PUTC. Someone should BAN HIM ASAP for calling fellow bloggers vulgar names. GET A LIFE YOU KOOL-AID GUZZLING FANGIRL.

BTW, Frank. Learn how to spell. It is "their" not "there" go back to first grade. LMAO

Odd,people are fine when GM get a recall say "Oh its good when they catch it in time" Wait when another brand gets a recall,they will bitch and say oh what garbage..



I wouldn't buy a truck that said GM on the front of it in big bold tacky letters for anything. How embarrassing. Add to it, this GMC truck is nothing but a front for Opel and Chinese Buick. GM-GMC is the worst.

you guys are embarrassing to the PUTC community... wow... and seat back that doesnt lock into place... deal (99% of them sold will have electric seats.) so odds are that they are still on dealer lots anyways...... atleast the trucks dont fall on thier face when merging into traffic #ecobust.. or burn to the ground...

Find a way to put someone on putc's payroll to delete all of this crap or approve the comments before hand. This plus the consistently late news is making this site less credible than what it used to be. I would have added lack of articles but they have improved in how long I wait to read something new lately. I hope that was the first step on the road to improvement and do apprieciate it.
