General Motors has issued another three separate recalls which is contributing to the frenzy of almost 16 million units recalled this year only.
According to the North American based automotive giant, the new recall is affecting the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado LD, the 2015 Chevrolet Silverado HD, the 2014 GMC Sierra LD, the 2015 GMC Sierra HD, the Yukon, the Yukon XL and the Tahoe. Owners of these vehicles will have to take a trip back to the dealers because the base radio may not work and this will prevent audible warnings “if the key is in the ignition when the driver’s side door is opened”. This will be affecting the audible chime which will remain quiet if the front seatbelt is not buckled too. This is affecting 89,126 vehicles.
The second recall is affecting 31,520 units of the 2012 Chevrolet Camaro, the Buick Verano, the Chevrolet Cruze and the Chevrolet Sonic (Aveo) because of a defect with the dual stage driver’s airbag, which has a shorting bar inside and it may contact the airbag terminals occasionally. The airbag warning light will illuminate if this will happen and the airbag will not deploy in case of a crash. There is also a third recall which is affecting the 2014 Chevrolet Corvette, in 33 units. This has been announced because of an internal short circuit in the SDM (sensing and diagnostic module) which could disable the front airbags or the safety belt pretentioners.
