Recall Alert: 2014-2015 4x4 Chevrolet Silverado 1500s, GMC Sierra 1500s, and 2015 Chevy and GMC Full-Size SUVs

2014-chevy-silverado-recall

Vehicles Affected: About 400,000 model-year 2014-2015 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and GMC Sierra 1500 pickup trucks as well as model-year 2015 Chevy Tahoe and Suburban, and GMC Yukon and Yukon XL full-size SUVs with four-wheel-drive systems

The Problem: A software glitch in the electronically controlled transfer case, which is responsible for controlling the four-wheel-drive system, can slip into neutral without any input from drivers while parked or in motion. GM is unaware of any accidents or injuries related to this issue.

The Fix: Dealers will recalibrate the transfer case control module free of charge.

What Owners Should Do: Contact your local Chevy or GMC dealer, or call Chevy at 866-694-6546 or GMC at 866-790-5700.

It's great to see GM being on the ball with recalls, but, um, there's kinda a lot of them.

Well Chevy owners must be thinking about getting a free room at their dealer since they spend so much time their.

Is electronic transfer case control really better than the manual floor lever? With bucket seats and these giant consoles rapidly replacing the bench seat (and the "center stack" pretty much killing what legroom there would have been for a center bench passenger), the floor lever really isn't in anyone's way today.

WHAT DID FORD SAY TO GM?


I don't RECALL!

Thought I seen some GM puke posting about Rams SMALL RECALL about not being able to go into park (a while back) and now this happens on GMs, wow, strong trucks! Every 4x4!

How do GM customers even get their free 2 years of service, when their techs are constantly doing recalls?

I gotta wonder how cheap these 1500 GMs will sell for by September? 8-10k off MSRP now, with 2 years of service, 12$k off sounds about right. Maybe 13 K off come November, lol.

No wonder Papa Jim thinks the economy is so rough, it's that black cloud hanging over GM's head. They can barely move these GM trucks without offering heavy discounts and service on them!

Ford will have it's share of recalls, when that new model comes out. They haven't refreshed the 2009s at all, just a few engine changes in 2011. They like TSBs better, so you have to wait for you Egoboost to have issues.

Ford hasn't changed their bodies since 2004, yes I know they altered the front end and put some creases on the tailgate.. OH and the Crew Cab and only the Crew cab was stretched in 09.

As the auto industry has become increasingly scrutinized it's becoming obvious they need to clean house and change their haughty culture.

It's gonna be interesting to see how profits suffer the coming quarters.

Wow! G.m. is on a roll.

"Families of those killed in crashes involving General Motors’ deadly ignition switches will be offered at least $1 million if they can prove the defective part caused their crashes.

GM victim compensation director Kenneth Feinberg, who also led the 9/11 compensation and BP oil spill funds, said today that people who suffered injuries or families of victims who died because of the defect qualify for settlements and can begin filing claims Aug. 1.

Feinberg said current and former owners of 2.6 million small cars potentially affected by the defect will be notified that they may be eligible for settlements.

GM has identified at least 13 deaths and several dozen injuries connected to the problem, although those figures are expected to rise. Feinberg declined to speculate on how many people might be eligible or how much GM might pay out."

@Jack: I know that Ford did enough change in 2009 that their head on accident rating from the IIHS is worse for 2009 then 2004, yup, they are safer on your feet on 2004 than 2009 and up. Ford , going backwards!

HAHA I found TRX-4 Tom bragging bout his Fiat 1500. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=duryXmyBl2A

HA Ha, I found Johnny Troll posting crap, but what else is new? Lol Johnny, I speak only English, and that's not a Ram 1500.

"Boo-hoo"said Johnny, when told of yet another recall, a couple of days before he sees his Generic Motors vehicles lose sales.

@Hemi V8

So, you showed us a Free Press linked article quoting a rock star personal-injury lawyer who will sue on behalf of willing victims.

GM's neglect will assure that the victims have a chance to win the Lotto in court, but who will ultimately pay?

In the big tobacco settlement that distributed twenty BILLION dollars in settled claims the folks who ultimately paid are the people who still buy cigarettes. The lawyers in that case all cashed in.

Do you think it's high time that settlements intended to help the victims actually go to helping victims, instead of simply enriching well connected law firms?

"General Motors is recalling another 8.4 million North American vehicles — mostly for another deadly ignition switch defect — in yet another development that broadens the automaker’s safety crisis.

GM said the latest round of recalls brings the total for the year to 28.9 million vehicles, more than the company has sold in the last three years combined. Some of the defects involved in today’s recalls could be connected to three deaths and eight injuries in seven crashes.

The company said recall expenses would total $1.2 billion for the second quarter, up from $700 million — and enough to raise questions whether GM will report a loss for the period despite the strongest sales in the U.S. since 2007."

You should use your parking brake everytime you park the vehicle, besides not using your parking brake will cause the cable and the parking brake linkage to rust and freeze up costing a lot to repair

^recall expenses?^ they haven't even got to my girlfriends dads HHR, or her sisters Cobalt, what have they spent yet for the recalls that were out half a year ago?

GM, living on borrowed time.

2007-2011 Chevrolet Silverado HD, GMC Sierra HD equipped with an auxiliary battery because a power issue can cause a fire.

At least it didn't catch on fire during the test drive, right DODGE??

GM WINS AGAIN!

@ proud GM assembler

What about that fancy Tahoe that burnt up on press day? Yep GM really won again, didn't they?

that's over 40 million this year alone, and a new record. congrats gm!

WOW, GM didn't need bailed out, they needed left alone to fail on their own, which is exactly what is happening they are failing bad, time to put them down the toilet for good

make or break time for GM
either they start thinking reliability now or they are doomed
to lose what is left of their customers.
they ought to break apart a Nissan or a Toyota to see how to make reliability and improve on it.

and I was seriously thinking about a Colorado ,I guess it's another f150 this time around
GM your scaring away customers big time

ITS A SHAME A MANUFACTURER THAT PUT OUT SO MANY AWSOME MUSCLE CARS IN THE PAST IS PUTING SO MANY LIVES IN DANGER.

I just bought a 2014 gmc sierra and was never told about the transfer case recall. I know it's illegal to sell a new truck with open recalls. What would you all do? It's been two weeks and I just got a call to fix the recall. They offered a free car wash. My 17 year old daughter drove this truck and I had no idea about the safety problem. I want a parts credit so I can get some nerf bars, not a friggin car wash. Please let me know if any of you have had this happen to you. And yes, I asked the salesman if there was anything wrong and he met my only child that day too. This makes me sick. Plus I am disabled and the side steps or nerf bars would help me get in or out easily. Can I return the truck and get my money back? Please help. Thanks. Richard

I was sold a new truck with a dangerous safety recall two weeks ago. The dealership knew it but did not tell me. Any lawyers out there that want to give some advice to a disabled leatherneck. This is my second posting in 10 minutes. I really need advice. Thanks again. My email is richardusa@aol.com

Yes people gm has had a few problems but so does ford and dodge .I just bought a 2014 sierra and loves it ,the third one since 04 I will never change brands. Ford had 4 wheel drive problems ,fuel gage problems and manifold problems . Dodge had front end problems ,break problems and rusty exhausts problems. The point is when it's new there's always bugs to work out your going to like what you like and that's it plus if you fart in the back of a dodge she hits the ground lol
