2015-2016 Chevrolet Silverado Pickups: Recall Alert

2015-Chevrolet-Silverado-3500

By Patrick Masterson

Vehicles Affected: Model-year 2015-16 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, 2500 and 3500 pickup trucks are part of a recall affecting approximately 23,000 vehicles; the recall includes Tahoe Police Pursuit and Special-Service SUVs

The Problem: The flexible steel cable connecting the driver's seat belt to the outboard side of the seat may be repeatedly bent over the seat side shield as the driver enters and exits the vehicle, causing the cable to fatigue and separate. If the cable becomes fatigued or breaks, the driver may not be properly restrained, increasing their risk of injury in the event of a crash.

The Fix: Dealers will replace the pretensioner cable and seat side shield for free.

What Owners Should Do: Chevrolet manufacturer GM did immediately announce an owner-notification schedule. Owners can call the automaker at 800-222-1020, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit its website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.

Ummmm....the irony.

Ah, easy fix...good job GM

The problem is that these Silverado's got so much power and has such great brakes that it places too much stresses on the passenger restraints.

As usual pure junk!!! That thing belongs in the junk YARD. So let be.

lucky for GM that they didn't sell as many trucks as Ford did so GM doesn't have to spend more money for this recall

It’s a good thing GM didn’t sell as many Silverados in 2015, 2016 ( the recall year ) as Ford.

@Harvey

sorry I did not explain it for you.

GM routinely sells more trucks than Ford. The Ford boys get confused by the Dearborn koolaid and think that Ford sells more, but they're wrong.

Ford wished they sold Silverados.

@ GMSarentGreat

Why would Ford wish they sold sold a lesser vehicle?

@ Harvey - REMEMBER FORD = McDONALDS
WE ALL KNOW WHERE THE QUALITY IS THERE
SORT OF LIKE QUALITY IS JOB NONE.
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
FORD IS THE LESSER VEHICLE

Amazing number of recalls out of GM lately.

@ Chingon

According to PapaJoke, GM equals McDonalds

So with your logic, if GM sold as many trucks as FORD, GM would be spending as much on recalls as what Ford does.

Because the Silverado is the best selling model truck in America. More sold than either of Fords 2 full size model trucks F-150 or Superduty.

There is a severe shortage of mechanics, technicians out there and dealerships are struggling to keep up.
These recalls put extra pressure on them where they don't have enough skilled techs and time to do this work.

Dealers don't make money on these recalls, they do the repairs at a reduced or fixed labor rate that takes valuable time away from doing top billing work and that's why when you call for an appointment for service that you may wait 30 days or more.

What about your time wasted when you have to take a day off work to bring your vehicle in for recall work? Do you want to spend a day off sitting in a dealers waiting room?

bottom line:
these recalls from GM seem to never end and not only hurts the reputation of the company the dealer gets annoyed with work he doesn't need and wears the owner of the vehicle down too

Amazing number of recalls out of GM lately.

That's because statistically speaking, GM is above average in voluntary recalls. No matter how small or insignificant. The last GM recall was for fire extinguishers supplied with GM vehicles, that were manufactured by a 3rd party. The only reason hose fire extinguishers were supplied with GM trucks was in case the customer happened to roll up on a Ford fire on the side of the road.

So Fords junk is the last one to be recalled by themselves , they were dead last in terms initiating recalls before the NHTSA got around to it. Way to go Ford. Again ---Quality is Job None..

@ Chingon

Same to you on the fast food comparison lol! All you ever post is "HAHAHA GARBAGE MOTORS" LOL...I'm guessing your a Ford fan? Why would Ford team up with "GARBAGE MOTORS" to develop a transmission?? Are they both in the same dumpster?

What’s just as humours is the other GM halfwits don’t correct hhis fake claim.

So a) they are as ignorant and unintelligent as him.

or

b) are the same person

@ Harvey

Halfwit lol I like it! Seriously though, at least post something that makes yourself look half smart...or I mean not ignorant or unintelligent lol...kinda like your Wards 10 best comment the other day, obviously you don't have a clue

You are obviously one of the halfwits on this site, I like it! Keep posting

Wait...do you know what that means?

@ BA ( Bad Aroma )

You’re overly concerned with what Ipost....

All while your silence on GMS false claims has others scratching their head on why you don’t correct GMSLIES.

@ Harvey

Bad Aroma? Seriously, that's all you could come up with?? Now you know what I smell like? Halfwit? I won't resort to name calling and I'm not a GM guy, just a truck guy so I only call out what I know is an ignorant or unintelligent post..like most of yours! Grow up man

@ Bad Aroma

So you agree with GMSLIES when he says Silverado is the best selling. Otherwise you would “ call him out “ as you state. General Motors doesn’t even make make that false statement.

That speaks volumes of your (un)intelligence

@ Harvey Halfwit

So first of all I drive a Ford, you probably don't even have a truck or if you do I bet you live in the city where it don't matter! I personally like both Ford and GM. Like I said, I only call out what I know for sure, GM sells two different brands so idk but I don't claim I do. And of course GM doesn't claim they do, they can only speak for each individual brand, halfwit!!!! Finally, are you gonna defend yourself on that Wards 10 best comment or just admit you don't have a clue lol.

@ Bad Aroma

Like I said. You do agree with GMSLIES. Otherwise, in your own words, you would “ call him out “ for his false claim the Silverado is the best selling. It’s a proven fact Ford full-size outsells Cheverolet full-size...the complete opposite of GMSLIES statement

Your ignorance and silence on that is comical

@ Bad Aroma

Since when to trucks not matter in a city???? Is a Chevy Cruze going to haul rebar? Or tow 10,000lbs of cinder blocks?

And you claim to call other out for ignorance. That comment of yours is textbook ignorance

I can’t stop laughing that someone would think ( and post ) that trucks don’t matter in a city.

@ Harvey Halfwit
Lol this who outsells who is hilarious! I honestly don't care that much, if I were to guess it would be Ford. Your trying to argue a topic with me that I never even posted anything on!!! Now that's comical! Can you read, I've answered every halfwit question you've asked. Still waiting on a response on my questions?? I've got better things to do lol

I knew you lived in the City lol and probably work in an office lol..love it!!

Are you there?? How many times must I ask, Wards 10 best? Do you have a clue? Yes it doesn't matter near as much in the city hauling 10,000 lbs in stop and go traffic! I promise! Thanks

Besides I'm sure from your defensive posts it's not a Chevy Cruze it's a Ford Fiesta lol

@ Bad Aroma

Thought you said you don’t name call? More untruth from you.

“ truck don’t mattet in the city “

- Bad Aroma

So what’s going to haul pipe to the new multi dwelling unit being developed? Or asphalt for road repair? In your eyes, all those trucks contractors and the cities own/use are out of ignorance?

2.7L and 5.0L aren’t new engines. They were upgraded, but not new designs of engines.

Mic drop

@ Bad Aroma

And now I see you’re making fun of people that work in an office? See that PUTC editors and employees? He’s now making fun of you guys.

Bad Aroma stinks.

Mic Drop?? I know they're not new, and yes upgraded or refreshed. We know! That wasn't the point, wow!! I guess you dont remember, you were trying to compare Fords "upgraded engines with GMs old engines that came out two years ago and why they weren't on Wards top 10!...its more and more obvious you are clueless thanks for your "mic drop" lol!! Yes I'm using your names not mine halfwit

Again can you read???? The trucks performance attributes don't matter near as much in stop and go city traffic I promise! Whether going to a new development or asphalt for the road not a big deal! Try going to that New development up a 7% grade on a muddy or snowy road!? Besides I was talking about you not everyday contractors, but you definitely answered my theory of you not having a truck and living in the city, thanks love it!!

@ Bad Aroma

So in words, you can’t compare engines unless they’re developed that same model year. first you say trucks don’t matter in a city. And now this.

Hahhhaaa....ok

PUTC should have made your ban permanent.

@ Harvey office city halfwit
And you work in an office amazing!! Your too easy giving yourself up lol...I make fun of office workers everyday just hoping they'll try and defend themselves! Lol

Wtf!!! Wards 10 best halfwit, that's what it is, a comparison of new or refreshed engines...clueless

You get your rocks off on making fun of where people work?

What a lame existence you lead. Not much in your life to be proud of.

I'd love to meet you at the jobsite in your Fiesta lol!

I really get my rocks off when I meet office guys who think they know trucks!! Awesome love it...Wards 10 best!
