2017 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, GMC Sierra 1500: Recall Alert

2017 GMC Sierra 1500

By Jen Burklow

Vehicles Affected: Approximately 30,000 model-year 2017 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 regular-cab pickup trucks produced between May 5, 2016, and May 9, 2017, and model-year 2017 GMC Sierra 1500 regular-cab pickups produced between June 23, 2016, and May 9, 2017

The Problem: The owner's manual may be missing instructions on how to use the tether and Latch anchor systems for installing child-safety seats. Without instructions, child-safety seats might be installed and secured incorrectly, increasing the risk of injury in a crash.

The Fix: Dealers will provide a corrected insert for the owner's manual for free.

What Owners Should Do: Chevrolet and GMC manufacturer GM has not yet provided 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 visit www.safercar.gov to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.

they don't produce many reg cabs, that's for sure.

Government Motors still pushing their junk on people I see.

Regular cab.

Try it just once---you'll never go back to the big cab models again.


Just look at the ugly pig nose and those square wheel wells. Junk for sure that's the ugliest thing I ever seen.

Probably all of these were sold to U-Haul/Menards/Fleet etc

That's a real problem for Jonny dip du and alter ego GMsucks. If they dont use the car seat they can't see over the dash,never mind the offset wheel. With all that shaking it is essential the boost wrt seat be girmly attached. LOL!!!!!

Those GMCs look amazing, especially those Denali versions.

What a beautiful truck, so much better looking than those ugly looking Fords. Love the wheel wells.

Looks like a truck built from Legos. Can't do rounded corners. Ugly...

Gm = failure!

Next year, you'll be able to file for Chapter 11 by pressing the OnStar button!

A recall for a missing page in a manual?
Holly s**t, just mail one!

Now I get it, liability. GM wants to ensure the owner gets the missing information. Can't say that I blame them or other manufactures that need to recall a vehicle to place a sticker on it.

Recalls suck but it's good to see that GM continues to demonstrate that they're taking safety issues seriously. There are other manufacturers *cough*Ford*cough* that continue to avoid recalls for expense or public image reasons.


This one amazed me. They only wanted to recall vehicles with a deadly door latch defect in the region it was most likely to happen in. Because people don't travel to other areas of the US in their Fords? Or was it because a national recall would cost $640M vs the $40 million the regional recall was going to cost?

I think the dealer service departments can leverage these opportunities to sell an oil change or tire rotation

@papajim: good point.

Thankful GMC is not avoiding recalls like Toyota does all the time. Absolutely love my Denali and get 37-40 mpg on the interstate and 22-25 in the metropolitan area. Truck automatically goes between a v-8 and v-4 , my Toyota Tundra would average 17 mpg. Big difference!

I admit GM makes a great looking truck. But Ford is where its at, i own one so it has to be the best.

(his Denali gets) 37-40 mpg on the interstate and 22-25 in the metropolitan area.


Try looking at your math again.

2017 GMC Sierra SLT crew cab 4wh drive - 8 speed Trans shifts terrible in 1st and 2nd gear. Bangs into gear when letting off gas and down shifting. Has done this since first 2000 miles and getting worse. Dealer maintenance and GM Corp says i'ts not bad, but they don't drive it.
