GM Trucks Added to Takata Airbag Inflator Recall

2009 Chevy Silverado 1500 RC II

For the first time, GM is issuing a preliminary recall related to the existing Takata airbag inflator recall; it includes model-year 2007-2011 half-ton pickup trucks and model-year 2009-2011 heavy-duty pickups and covers Chevrolet, GMC and Cadillac brands. GM is among five automakers announcing additional Takata recalls today.

As noted in earlier Takata recall notices regarding Ford, Ram, Honda, Subaru and other automakers, this latest wave of recalls focuses on faulty passenger-side airbag inflators influenced by humidity levels, so right now the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is recalling vehicles based on humidity in three geographic zones. NHTSA is pushing to make all Takata inflator recalls national in scope. To find out more about the various regions and the five manufacturers added to this latest round of recalls, click here.

Owners can call the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or go to www.safercar.gov for more info. Owners also can check for recalls using their vehicle identification number on NHTSA’s VIN lookup tool or check GM's newly launched Takata recall website, which includes a VIN lookup tool.

GM vehicles now included in the Takata passenger-side airbag inflator recalls are:

  • 2007-11 Chevrolet Silverado 1500
  • 2007-11 GMC Sierra 1500
  • 2007-11 Chevrolet Avalanche
  • 2007-11 Cadillac Escalade EXT
  • 2009-11 Chevrolet Silverado 2500/3500
  • 2009-11 GMC Sierra 2500/3500

The never ending recall, I hope Mine are still good by the end of the week. but probably not.

They need to just drop this airbag thing. Really not that big of a deal. As these vehicle age less and less will be on the road. Like the ranger recall posted earlier and this one most of these trucks are all but used up and sitting in a junk yard. Not really that many 2007 silverado's on the road that more. They don't last that long to be on the road after 8 years. They are mostly in crushed and recycled by now.

"When will those f-series recalls end???" (posted by GMSRGREAT). Oh that's funny!

NNNNNNNOOOOOOOOOoooooooo...........

My 2010 RAM 1500 is still fine. I enjoy this show for now, but I don't wish anyone to get hurt or die, because some CEO bastard got himself a second yacht.

This airbag thing is beyond ridiculous.

WHERE IS THE GUY WITH THE NAME OF (FORD ORGULLOSA DE SER MEXICANA) SO LET ME TELL YOU THIS GOVERNMENT MOTORS HAS MANUFACTURES IN MEXICO IN SILAO GUANAJUATO AND FOR THE RECALL HOPFULLY HE STOP TALKING $&!!T TO FORD AND THATS THE PROOF THE GOVERNMENT MOTORS USED MORE TAKATA AIR BAGS THEN FORD.

When will these GM recalls ever stop???????????

I agree Ford and Chevy Suck. Give me some MOPAR!

You have to ask, why is fiat STILL using recalled airbags in current production.

So GovMotors are great...

Is this GM's fault that Taka supplied the defective airbag like it was Fords fault before this announcement?

Or is it still Ford's fault for selling more trucks with the defective airbag? You know because Ford F series (at least for almost my entire lifetime) outsells GMC or Chevrolet and occasionally both combined...

Now can you tell the difference between this recall/issue and when GM murdered all those people with its lack of engineering, ethics and cover up of a POS spring they designed in the ignition switches of millions of vehicles and sent recall notices to deceased victims?

You need to lay low... but I don't think you will.

Youre used to being wrong/delusional so this is nothing new.

Another news flash... Aluminum bodies are coming to GMC and Chevy... Its not IF its going to happen its WHEN will it happen.

GM maintains a steel "safety cage", just like their commercials.

You would know the answer, if you've read your own link. Give it at least try next time bro. It might surprise you.

Responding to the Senate report, FCA US said by e-mail that, "FCA US is not equipping any new vehicles with components that are currently subject to recall."

Technically, that is correct, but FCA still is using a Takata airbag that is not equipped with a desiccant, a chemical designed to absorb moisture and reduce the risk of a malfunction by one of the supplier's ammonium nitrate inflators. NHTSA has indicated that it ultimately does plan to recall all such airbags by 2018, but does not necessarily consider them an immediate safety threat.

Don't worry rambot, they are on future plans for a recall. So they are using airbags with the intent of recalling them in 2 years.

I am not worry . My RAM doesn't have recall for airbags, like ford .


The four manufacturers that acknowledge they are continuing to use non-desiccated Takata inflators in new products are Fiat Chrysler, Mitsubishi, Toyota and Volkswagen, according to the report released Wednesday by U.S.

NHTSA in March ordered the recall of as many as 40 million more of the devices. The exact number of vehicles recalled is uncertain because some use several of the targeted airbags.

The Takata problem has become the largest recall in automotive history, and has proven especially vexing to address, said an aide to Sen. Nelson, noting, "There are not enough replacement bags."

Ford got priority over FCA, Toyota, Mitsubishi and VW in US. As usually.
Money under table, new airbags first.

At least, I don't have to worry with my RAM about airbags, like ford drivers does. And I don't have to worry about trany to downshift all the way to the first gear for no reason and I don't have to worry, that my master brake cylinder doesn't apply pressure for brakes, when most needed . Enjoy your #1 selling fseries. LOL.


Where's johnny trvlldildoe

Man look at that cry baby ram. Ford and GM pays under the table to get quality parts so fiat has to buy defective stuff and will recall later. Then she talks about her truck and no issues. Man, she just has a sob story after sob story.

Maybe you didn't get the memo, but my RAM doesn't have an airbags recall, like ford does. You can't win this fight.

Maybe your truck doesn't not but you seem to make it your business on what fiat doespecially. So fiat has many recalls on air bags and are pre-planning on another one in 2 years. Now that is classic. You are a fiat owner ran, I will give you that one because quite frankly you cannot win at anything. I do feel bad for you.

I won already bro. No airbag recall for me. No engine recall for me, no trany recall for me, no brakes recall for me, no axle wrap for me. What else I could wish for ? I wish fseries drivers could say that. LOL.


no late model Tundras on the recall list either, only the first gen Tundras.

Sure as Fiat continues to bury it's problems under a rug in hopes of not getting caught. Yup, I am glad I drive F series trucks and some GM trucks. They are on top of things compared to the back door fiat company.

You are delusional. No problems with my trany, no recalls. No problems with my engine, no recalls .No problem with my airbags, no recall. No problem with my brakes, no recalls. No axle wrap.

You should write fiat a thank you letter for getting your truck right then. With a -37% average reliability rating you went into that truck with very poor odds. Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha. The sad news is, if there is a problem you can rest asure that it will be buried with the rest of fiats issues with the little spaghetti eaters in the corner hoping it stays buried until they can sell off that brand.

You better write the letter to the ford about those engine , trany , brakes and airbags recalls and let me enjoy my RAM, not recalled for any of those fseries issues. When is ford going to address axle wrap ? Never ? At least you keep aftermarket industry busy. Fseries #1 aftermarket supporter. LOL.

Don't forget to spend weekend defending fseries recalls my RAM doesn't have. LOL.
