Recall Alert: 2014-2015 Chevrolet Silverado, GMC Sierra

2014-chevy-silverado-recall

By Tom Torbjornsen

Vehicles Affected: Approximately 2,100 model-year 2014-15 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra pickup trucks manufactured between Jan. 24, 2014, and Feb. 26, 2014.

The Problem: The ignition lock actuator may bind, making turning the key difficult or causing the ignition to get stuck in the Start position. If this occurs, the ignition may suddenly snap back into the Accessory position, causing a loss of engine, steering and braking power; this increases the risk of a crash in which the airbags may not deploy, increasing the risk of an injury.

The Fix: Dealers will replace the ignition lock housing for free.

What Owners Should Do: GM has not yet provided an owner-notification schedule. Owners can call Chevrolet at 800-222-1020 or GMC at 800-462-8782 for more info. Owners can also call the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236, or go to www.safercar.gov.

I believe that is JD power. CR has a range of 10 years or so. Give or take a year or two. I would have to log in to see exactly but the F150 I believe went back to 06.

Gm saddle tanks that killed people? That was pure leftist propaganda

A Colorado woman is suing General Motors after an accident left her trapped in her car at the bottom of a ravine.

Kristin Hopkins, 45, spent six days in the car following the April 2014 accident, which resulted in both of her legs being amputated below the knees.

oh how those recalls just keep coming on the newer GM trucks..another reason not to waste your money on one

@Chuck Z

Ford or Ram Fan boy? You are clearly just saying that because you have a bias. Come on, just admit it. BTW, Skeeter posted this already but you probably didn't read it so here it is again.

Since you are equating a small recall for this GM as making it something people shouldn't waste money on, I am going to extrapolate that you mean that they aren't reliable. Well by your logic, the Ford F150 is the worst, least reliable vehicle to ever be made.

GM just can't get a break from ignition switch recalls.

Maybe GM could use aluminum in their keys and fobs. Big Al might support that.

@ Skeeter, yes the f150 is the tops of that list, but also the best selling car the camry is #2. Even though the f150 has had more vehicle recalls, I wish it broke it down to how many recalls per vehicle. Ford did make some crap in the 90s and early 2k but like the other manufacturers, they all have stepped up their game which is good for all of us.
