Stop Driving Order Issued for Silverado 1500, Tahoe, and Subrban Owners

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.
