What Breaks the Most
Silverado 3500 Key Numbers
According to the lawsuit, more than 2 million trucks and SUVs in the U.S. share the same defective air conditioning designs and were built on a vehicle platform known as GMT K2XX.
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.…keep reading article "Some Newer Chevy Vehicles May Have the Wrong Seat Belt Bolts"
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.…keep reading article "2016-2018 HD Trucks Recalled for Overfilling Gas Tank"
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.…keep reading article "Lawsuit Says GM Tried to Save a Few Bucks by Intentionally Selecting a Fuel Pump That Can’t Handle US Diesel"
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.…keep reading article "GM Brake Pedals Are Still Falling Off Because Technicians Didn’t Follow the Recall Instructions"
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.keep reading article "Are There Duramax Diesel Defeat Devices?"
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?keep reading article "23,000 Trucks Recalled Because the Dang Seatbelts Might ‘Fatigue’ and Seperate"
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.keep reading article "Massive GM Airbag Recall"
