NEWS: GM recalls 117,000 vehicles for stalling
Detroit News  @ October 3, 2014

OCT 2014 -- General Motors Co. said Thursday it is recalling 117,600 newer vehicles because an electronic module may be defective and could lead to stalling in rare cases.

The Detroit automaker is recalling certain vehicles of the following models: 2013-14 Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban; 2013-14 Cadillac CTS; 2013-14 GMC Yukon and Yukon XL; 2013-14 Cadillac Escalade and Escalade ESV; 2014 Chevrolet Traverse; 2014 GMC Acadia; 2014 Buick Enclave; 2014 Chevrolet Express; 2014 GMC Savana; 2014 Chevrolet Silverado HD and 2014 GMC Sierra HD.

The recall includes about 97,000 vehicles in the United States and 20,000 outside, including about 4,000 in Canada. About 4,500 are in dealer hands and can't be sold until they are repaired. Automotive News reported the recall Thursday, citing a notice sent to dealers.

GM spokesman Alan Adler said the new recall was prompted by field reports of metallic slivers causing electrical shorts in the chassis control module that could lead to stalling or vehicles failing to start. GM said it expects the problem will affect 1 percent of the vehicles recalled.

GM knows of no crashes, injuries or fatalities related to this condition.

Dealers will replace the module. GM hasn't announced a repair schedule.

This marks GM's 70th recall of 2014. It means GM North America has called back 26.1 million vehicles in the United States and at least 29.5 million worldwide. Earlier this week, GM said it was calling back more than 120,000 Cadillac SRX SUVs in China and Canada for suspension issues. It has not disclosed how many 2010-15 Cadillac SRX SUVs are being recalled in the United States.

The Justice Department is investigating GM's handling of a delayed ignition switch recall of 2.6 million older Chevrolet Cobalts, Saturn Ions and other cars linked to at least 23 deaths. The Securities and Exchange Commission, 45 state attorneys general and Canadian officials are also investigating.

GM paid a record-setting $35 million fine to NHTSA in May.

Automakers have recalled nearly 50 million vehicles this year, shattering the prior all-time record of 30.8 million vehicles recalled in 2004.

NEWS: GM recalls another 1.8 million vehicles amid safety probe
Yahoo News  @ March 17, 2014

MARCH 2014 -- General Motors announced its second massive recall in two months on Monday as it works to contain a growing scandal over the safety of its vehicles.

The latest recall of nearly 1.8 million vehicles linked to three new problems comes as a result of an internal probe into why it took the largest US automaker so long to acknowledge a deadly ignition defect.

Monday's recall covered three different defects unrelated to the ignition problems, none tied to reports of accidents or injuries, GM said.

The bulk of the vehicles recalled Monday -- more than 1.5 million -- were sold in the United States. Some 97,000 were sold in Canada and the remainder were sold in other markets around the world.

Of the vehicles recalled Monday, some 1.3 million were due to a defective service air bag warning light.

The defect could prevent air bags and seat belts from deploying during a crash.

That recall affects Buick Enclave and GMC Acadia models from the 2008-2013 model years, Chevrolet Traverse from the 2009-2013 model years, and Saturn Outlook from the 2008-2010 model years.

A failure to comply with a head impact requirement for unrestrained occupants led to the recall of 355,000 Chevrolet Express and GMC Savana from the 2009-2014 model years.

A problem with a brake booster pump which has been linked to two engine fires in unsold vehicles at dealerships led to the recall of 66,000 Cadillac XTS full-size sedan from the 2013 and 2014 model years.
