Chevy Cruze

428,211 of these vehicles are located in the United States, 57,706 are in Canada, and 20,956 are in other markets.

In its seemingly never-ending string of recalls, General Motors today announced four new campaigns covering some 506,873 vehicles. 428,211 of these vehicles are located in the United States, 57,706 are in Canada, and 20,956 are in other markets.

First up is the 2013-14 Chevrolet Cruze, which is being recalled because “the inflator in the driver’s front airbag may rupture and/or the airbag may not inflate during airbag deployment,” according to GM. This could shoot metal pieces of the inflator into the cabin, injuring occupants during a crash. What’s more, GM says that if the airbag does not inflate, this could, obviously, increase the risk of injury to the driver. A total of 29,019 Cruzes are affected in the United States, with an additional 4,066 units being recalled in Canada.

The largest of the four recall campaigns involves four-wheel-drive versions of the 2014-15 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra, as well as the 2015 Chevy Tahoe, Suburban, GMC Yukon and Yukon XL. A grand total of 392,459 vehicles are affected in the US, with 53,607 more found in Canada, and an additional 20,874 in other markets. Here, the transfer case “may electronically switch to neutral without input from the driver,” GM states. The automaker adds that if this occurs while the vehicle is moving, power will not be sent to the wheels. On top of that, if the vehicle is parked, it may roll away unexpectedly if the parking brake has not been set.

In smaller recall news, 4,794 2013-14 Chevy Caprice police cars and SS sedans are being recalled in the US. According to GM, “If the motor gear teeth become stripped, the wipers may not operate” in these models.

Lastly, 1,939 2014 Chevy Corvettes fitted with the FE1 or FE3 suspension are being recalled in the US “to repair a possible insufficient weld in the rear shocks that could lead to a fracture and/or reduce the shocks’ service life.” In Canada, 33 additional vehicles are affected, as are 82 more ‘Vettes that were exported to other markets.

General Motors is aware of one injury regarding the Cruze recall, and is not aware of any crashes or injuries in the other three recalls. Scroll down for the automaker’s official release.
