GM is recalling nearly 4,800 new trucks and SUVs, and telling their owners to stop driving until their front upper control arms can be repaired:
“GM blames the problem on a bad weld near the control arm bushing, a problem the automaker discovered on a GMC Yukon XL Denali. The faulty weld can cause the control arm to change shape and eventually separate.”
Once again, there is a stop-driving order for owners of the 2016-2017 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, 2016 Chevrolet Tahoe, and 2016 Chevrolet Suburban. If you own one of these vehicles you need to make a service appointment right away.
While you’re on the phone, ask them about getting a tow for repairs and how to get a loaner vehicle in the meantime.
GM said they’ll send out a “please stop driving” notice in May 2016, and then a second notice when the recall actually begins.
