When traveling above 35mph, GM's full size trucks and SUVs are experiencing cabin vibrations along with terribly loud noises from buffeting wind that is making owners sick. GM says these vibrations are within their acceptable vibration rang…
A large number of Chevy vehicles have been recalled because they contain dangerous airbag inflators made by Takata. The shrapnel-hurling inflators have been recalled in over 37 million vehicles (and counting).

Silverado 3500 Key Numbers
GM may have used the wrong bolts to secure the seat belts in certain 2020 and 2021 Chevy models.
Could the new bolts work? Maybe. But when it comes time to rely on the seat belts, it's better knowing the right parts were used to tether them to the frame.…
The front gas tank in some 2016-2018 General Motors HD trucks is overfilling, rupturing, and leaking fuel.
The affected trucks all have two gas tanks. The front tank requests fuel from the backup when running low, but a defective sensor is requesting more fuel than the tank can hold. GM is recalling the trucks to stop the front tank from over-filling and rubbing against the driveshaft.…
GM allegedly cut corners by installing a fuel pump that isn’t compatible with US diesel in its larger trucks.
It’d almost be hard to believe, except we are talking about GM here. The same company that swept a deadly ignition switch problem under the rug for a decade, rather than spend $0.90 per unit to fix it.
A class-action lawsuit says GM knew what they were doing by installing the Bosch CP4 fuel pumps.…
It’s bad enough to have your truck recalled because the brake pedal might fall off. It gets worse when you find out there’s a good chance your truck wasn’t properly fixed … and the brake pedal still might fall off.
When a 2015 Silverado that had previously been “repaired” as part of the recall was brought back in for service, it raised a big ole’ red flag.…
A consolidated class-action lawsuit is accusing GM of equipping its Duramax diesel engines with defeat devices.
The plaintiffs claim emissions tests show the Silverado and Sierra 2500 and 3500 trucks emit levels of nitrogen oxides higher than GM advertised. The emissions are also allegedly higher than government standards.
The lawsuit says the engines are equipped with multiple devices to control emissions in specific situations, but that the engines generally produce 2.1 to 2.4x the legal limit.
That’s amateur hour next to VW’s diesel defeat devices that spewed 40x the legal limit of NOx.
GM is recalling 23,000 vehicles because the a seat belt pretensioner cable may no longer be attached.
The automaker had been monitoring the field for signs of pretensioner cables wearing down in 2014-2016 trucks and SUVs and monitoring warranty data, leading the automaker to open an internal investigation.
GM says the cables fatigue because the driver [can sit on the] pretensioner and cable guide in a sliding motion while entering the vehicle.
Let that be a lesson to us owners to … stop sitting in our cars?
Last month GM announced an airbag recall affecting 4 million vehicles.
Software errors have been found to disable the front airbags and seatbelt pretensions after "certain driving conditions." GM won't say what those conditions are, but they did say there’s been at least one death related to the bug.
“GM opened an investigation into the issue in June and contacted Delphi, the supplier of the sensing and diagnostic module. The automaker gathered additional electronic data recorder records from other incidents where the same crash symptoms occurred.”
After three days of road tests in September 2016, GM ordered the recall. The affected GMC vehicles include the Sierra lineup as well as the Yukon.
