Recall Alert: 2013-2014 Chevrolet, GMC Compressed Natural Gas Pickups, Vans

2013-Chevrolet-Silverado-HD-CNG-Recall
By Tom Torbjornsen

Vehicles Affected: Approximately 2,000 GM compressed natural gas vehicles, including model-year 2013-14 Chevrolet Silverado HD pickup trucks and Express vans, GMC Sierra HD pickup trucks, and model-year 2013 GMC Savana vans

The Problem: The text of the CNG-fuel-only label is smaller than the size required by federal safety standards and may be less noticeable, inhibiting fuel-tank inspection practices and safe refueling, increasing the risk of a fire.

The Fix: GM will send owners a replacement label for free.

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

Sweetest Recall Ever by General Motors. "It's in the Mail."

Sweetest Recall Ever by General Motors. "It's in the Mail."

Does this even warrant an article?

A recall for wrong labels makes sense but too small?

Leave it to the federal govt....

A recall for the size of the letters? What has become of this country? Just pathetic

agreed^^

Hmmm......................

This ones crazy for sure.

I am surprised Big Al didnt complain

I remember a recall I had on my 2001 HD to install warning stickers to not let the brake caliper hang from the hydraulic hose when you pull them off.. Humm guess we can't get a recall for common sense...

In other news the Canyon Colorado Duramax equipped trucks are rated at 22/31/25 MPG. http://www.leftlanenews.com/chevy-colorado-diesel-gets-31-mpg-highway-rating-90200.html

Nitro - the story wasn't about small diesels, chicken tax, or aluminum pickups ;)

My Tundra has a recall for a door sticker due to a dealer installed rim option. Toyota still has it...they won't send it to me.

This is so ridiculous! How hard would it have been for them to just print it in the correct font size in the first place?

Keep that great GM feeling...NOT

What's so discouraging is that there are regulations for the size of letters on a label. The slow creep of government that runs every aspect of our lives goes all the way down to letter size. 1984, just a few years late

@Roadram, your point is well taken, but it is actually worse than you are letting on. The same government that cannot balance its budgets (despite a 18 trillion dollar national debt) is also incompetent at so many of the critical tasks of managing its own affairs.

The American press bitched about Reagan's $800 dollar hammers but we now have a White House that reserves an entire hotel every time the president and his staff travel somewhere--which is quite a lot. And they don't fly coach class, that's for the rest of us.

I know. We have our own royal family that takes 2 million dollar vacations and hob nobs with the snobs on our dime while scolding us about income inequality. Drives up the debt, shuts down industries, promotes phony science, tosses veterans aside, weakens the military, encourages dissension at home and overseas, invites an invasion, ruins insurance and on and on and on.

@roadram, You are spot on correct!!!!!!

Roadram is getting something right. And don't forget our government funded the foreign takeover of a defunct former US car company no one would invest in.

“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”
― C.S. Lewis

Don't agree with the term robber baron but everything else describes the statist ideology that has blanketed this nation

The irony of left versus right ideology.

How about a government that gets the job done without f^cking it all up due to ideology.

BTW - that applies equally, regardless of which side of the political spectrum you sit upon.

Both sides haven't done us much good.

Screwed by both lear jet libtards and country club GOP establishment types

roadram - those in the top 0.1% look down upon the rest of us like sheep to be herded. Political ideology doesn't change that.

It just means that if you are on the left you are more likely to blindly follow along. If the right is in power then the sheeple on the right are more likely to follow along.

There is a growing divide between the "haves and have nots" in the USA. The "have nots" live at 3rd world levels of illness, crime, and poverty. Unfortunately that sort of thing can only last so long before severe social unrest ensues.

There's always been a divide between rich and poor. There always will be. Narrative used to be you work your way up from the bottom and enjoy your success. Leftists tell the low information drones to hate the rich. They stole everything they have from you. How can you steal from the poor? They practice the soft bigotry of low expectations by having people believe they're incapable of making smart choices and taking care of themselves.
Some of us still believe in those old ideas

roadram -easy for one to say when one isn't at the bottom of the barrel. A respected police officer I know once said, " It takes a strong swimmer to get themselves out of that cesspool."

I do agree to a certain degree that one is responsible to pull them selves up and out but the reality of it is quite different.

You have heard the term,"thinking outside the box"? The correct term is "paradigm shift". We are trapped by our own paradigms.

That basically means we are constrained by our upbringing, our social networks, our pears, our beliefs etc.
I suspect that you are middle class. Everything that makes us middle class tends to define us and in some respects makes it harder to see what is outside our middle class box. We can climb higher and enter the upper class but more often than not, we feel no desire and are content at where we are.

What defines us as middle class often keeps us there but it also affects our ability to understand those of completely different socioeconomic circumstances. Your comments prove that point.

Those trapped at the bottom often see no way out. That is why crime happens to be more prevalent. If you kick a dog every time you see it the dog will learn to cower and not want to venture out. People are no different.
