Vehicles Affected: Approximately 477 model-year 2014 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra full-size pickups, and 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe full-size SUVs
The Problem: The tie rod threaded attachment to the steering gear rack in these vehicles may not be tightened to specification. With this condition, the tie rod can separate from the steering rack and a crash could occur without prior warning.
The Fix: Customers should have their vehicles taken by flatbed tow truck to their dealer, where the inner tie rods will be inspected for correct torque, and, if necessary, the steering gear will be replaced.
What Owners Should Do: Affected customers are currently being contacted by GM, with overnight letters sent May 14 to dealers and owners. Concerned owners can contact Chevrolet at 800-222-1020 for more information.
