Recall Alert: 2014-2017 GM Pickups

2014-chevy-silverado-1500-recall1A (002)
Vehicles Affected:
 Approximately 1,490,000 model-year 2014-17 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, 2500 and 3500 pickup trucks manufactured between Sept. 30, 2013, and Aug. 15, 2016, and 565,000 model-year 2014-17 GMC Sierra 1500, 2500 and 3500 pickup trucks manufactured between Sept. 30, 2013, and Aug. 15, 2016. This recall affects a total of approximately 3.6 million GM vehicles.

The Problem: Software that controls airbag and seat belt pretensioner deployment could have a defect and may prevent the deployment of frontal airbags and pretensioners in certain pre-crash situations. This increases the risk of injury in a crash.

An accident involving a 2014 Chevrolet Silverado pickup in which the driver's front airbag did not deploy is what triggered the recall investigation.

The Fix: Dealers will update the software for free.

What Owners Should Do: GM has not yet announced an owner notification schedule. Owners may contact Chevrolet customer service at 800-222-1020 or GMC customer service at 800-462-8782. They can also call NHTSA's vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or go to www.safercar.gov for more info.

Guess they'll never do a recall for the shaking

@Robert. ... guess ford isnt either huh?....

Shake-n-bake...

This was on the news and again caused a death, not good PR for GM, I hope my wifes camaro wasnt on this list, if so time to dump it, GM continues to show foolk they are the market leader in this category.

The Tundra has no vehicle shake or brake checking people when passing a semi and the last recall I saw for the Tundra was regarding the TRD Supercharger.

Shake-n-bake...

I don't remember Ford ever having to recall EVERY SINGLE TRUCK BUILT IN THE LAST 3 model years.

GM quality...

All the makes have recalls including Found On Road Dead Ford
Doesn't matter which brand it is they all have recalls

Every truck though... Hey it's only software

If the Titan ever had a recall, the 5 trucks will be an easy fix😊

Chebby shacking and Ford baking.

Thats why i drive the longest lasting pick up from Ram.

The king of beasts.

Here we go again. Fight between the Ford and GM for most recalls in the history.
I am going to make some popcorn and open a beer and really enjoy that.
Have a great weekend.

“Awesome van and kudos to Ford for staying on top of any issues. LOVE FORD!”

Once again, Ford is steeping up and keeping us safe! Thank you!

This could occur to any manufacturer. The pump manufacturer probably supplies other manufacturers.

Software update, nothing new .
This is going to be the norm for all vehicles built nowadays, they are a computer on wheels now. Think of how many updated your PC goes thru, same for smart phones, we are in the era of software updates, whether it be your car, truck, home security, phone, computer, laptop , can't get away from it.

Caught in house 10 incidents 0 deaths 0 injuries, Get it fixed right and fast unlike some other far more fatal recalls...

Hemi- don't pound you chest too much...
Ram has an no so stellar crash test and as far as I am aware the only buyback of full size trucks.
Point is really there is NO perfect truck. Just hope you get a good one of your favorite brand.

Just wait until GM/RAM get's a recall, these trvlls will crawl back under their rock. This is comical.

Hey I got a solution to the problems in this world. Just put this GM software that controls airbag and seat belt pretensioner in the POS Ford Transit Connect vans and give it to the enemy for free....lol

If the software doesn't kill them, the door opening while driving will....heeeheeee

American vehicles are junk!

They should offer airbag DELETE option for people who dont like them,,
I use seat belts all the time and dont need airbags.
In 8 years of driving my Silvy the most expensive fix at 150$$ was for air bag sensor..
Too many government regs to force useless krapola on us

At least GM is fixing it...they could pull a Ford and ignore it!
For example, the Triton family of engines that
Spit out spark plugs left and right, now talk about
A massive recall......it will never happen. My brother
In law just spent $1500 to replace a Triton head
On a truck that's not worth $2,000. It only had 105,000
Miles when it spit out the plug.

Yep, GM is taking the lead on being responsible and fixing problems.

Ford on the other hand, denied that there was a major brake failure issue involving F-150's with the 3.5 ecoboost. They refused to warranty the problem for people lucky enough to survive sudden brake loss and denied it was an issue.

Odd how once the Feds started investigating the overwhelming number of reports of sudden brake failure, Ford suddenly jumps to attention and acknowledges the problem. Yet they only recalled 2013-2014 models. The problem still exists on 2015+ model years F150's, yet once again Ford acts as though it doesn't exist.

Or how about the door latch failure issue they're recalling right now. Ford only planned on recalling vehicles in Southern states. Apparently Ford would like to think that people in cooler climates don't drive their vehicles out of state. Once again, it wasn't until the Fed started blasting them for inadequately handling the recall that Ford suddenly changed its tune.

Safety obviously isn't Ford's policy. Their history of ignoring major safety hazards is legendary. From the bs "sticker recall" in the 80's for defective transmissions, to the Explorer rollovers where Ford threw their longtime partner Firestone under the bus, to the epic number of vehicles famous for burning down homes.

ALERT ALERT WARING WARNING WARING DANGER

Ford Motor Co. says it is adding about 1.5 million cars, SUVs and vans to a North American recall to fix door latches that could pop open when the vehicle is in operation.

Ford said the move expands the total recall this year to nearly 2.4 million vehicles in Canada, the United States and Mexico.

The automaker said affected vehicles in the latest recall include:

The 2013-15 Ford C-MAX and Ford Escape.
The 2012-15 Ford Focus.
The 2015 Ford Mustang and Lincoln MKC.
The 2014-16 Ford Transit Connect.

The automaker said a spring tab in the side-door latch could break, meaning the door either won't close or could pop open.

"A door that opens while driving increases the risk of injury," Ford said in a release.

Ford has been dealing with the door-latch issue since 2014, resulting in the recall of at least three million vehicles.

Ford also reported that the recalls will cost it about $640 million US against its third-quarter pretax profits. The company has also trimmed its full-year pretax profit forecast to $10.2 billion in an earlier forecast of $10.8 billion.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/the-switch/wp/2016/06/29/toyota-recalls-3-37-million-cars-over-air-bag-and-fuel-tank-defects/

"The automaker said that welds that connect side curtain air bags could deteriorate over time, causing the devices to inflate without cause. The recall covers Toyota Prius models from 2009 through 2015 and Lexus CT200 models from 2010 through 2015. The total accounts for 1.4 million vehicles, 482,000 of them in the United States, Toyota said in the announcement."

"Additionally, 2.87 million vehicles internationally are being recalled for possible cracks in the fuel tank, Toyota said. Some Prius models are affected by both defects, the company said, as are the Auris, Corolla, Zelas, Lucas and Lexus HS250h and CT200h manufactured from 2006 through 2015. About 900,000 Priuses are affected by both defects, which brings the total vehicles recalled to 3.37 million."


Toyota quality!

What else do you hear in your head Kenny ? Please do tell. LOL.

Seriously, you guys need to stop acting like kids. They all have recalls. I'm just glad a bunch of people didn't have to die like the infamous GM ignition switch recall or the Toyota un intended acceleration. Ford gets criticized for it's recall numbers, but they do it to keep their drivers safe and to keep their business a float.


Posted by: Nissansrgreat | Sep 10, 2016 7:59:06 PM

Seriously! Ford only reacts with a recall after they become investigated by NHTSB. And then only after multiple appeals and less than adequate proposals to avoid the recall. Ford has killed hundreds and maybe thousands of people with their exploding pinto, flipping Explorer and slipping out of park transmissions. What's deplorable is Ford lack of responsiveness to all their screw-ups. Read up on Ford's history.

@gms, so gm only react after a death? As in this story....bad quality, bad trucks, gm needs to go

Yea they all have recalls... And if a recall is caught in house and small and especially voluntary dealt with without deaths or injuries then its the cost of doing business (unlike the ignition issue).

This is a very large recall so obviously something was overlooked/mistaken for an extended period of time (like the ignition issue). Which is not good but does happen.

I don't see notification that the recall is ordered or that GM attempted to fight it or cover it up (like it did with the ignition issue) so that's a good thing.

So far only 1 incident is also a forgivable amount of impact especially since they are taking action (unlike the ignition issue)

As long as they correct it properly the first time (unlike the ignition issue) This really isn't a big deal other than its scale and there doesn't appear to be any ethical issues at this time.

I can forgive mistakes. I cannot forgive unethical, incompetent, fraudulent conduct that damages life and property. This incident although large does not appear to have conduct issues.

I completely agree and is the main reason why I can not get behind Ford, other then to help push one to the curb so traffic can get moving again.

The programming issue didn't cause the accident unlike Ford's brake issues and transmission sudden downshifting issues and adaptive cruise control issues, Ford doors opening while driving etc,etc,etc. We don't know if the deaths or injuries were the occupants of the Silverado or how severe the accident actually was.

Nice try cobaltsrgreat, the F150 recall, no injuries or deaths.

http://fordauthority.com/2015/10/ford-motor-company-recalls-33481-units-of-2015-ford-f-150/

Door latch recall, out of 2.4 million vehicles, 3 reported injuries.

Looks like GM is doing way worse there you wish GMSRGREAT.

@ LAMO : just remember, air bags and seatbelts very rarely cause accidents, and they never caused this accident.
