There were plenty of recalls for the 2014-2018 Chevrolet Silverado 1500. All models produced between 2014 to 2018 were recalled in 2021 for a driver's seatbelt tensioner cable that may separate. All models were also recalled for a software error that may cause unintended braking and a vacuum pump that may decrease power brake assist.
Models produced between 2014 to 2017 were recalled for front airbags that may not deploy, and a temporary loss of electric power steering. 2014 to 2015 models were missing a compressed natural gas sticker and an ignition lock actuator that may bind.
Early 2014 models were recalled for contamination of the chassis electronic module, front seats that may not remain anchored, a transfer case that may shift to neutral, floor mats not being properly secured, missing warning chimes, tie rod separation, a transmission oil line that wasn't properly seated, an incorrect transmission position indicator, substandard head restraints, and a passenger airbag that may not fully inflate.
2015 models have the same problems, with the addition of a brake pedal that may come loose. The 2016 MY was recalled for upper control arms that may have insufficient welds and intermittent failure of the audio warning system. The 2018 model is the least problematic. No new recalls were issued for this model year, and all of its recalls were only issued after the model had gone out of production.
Silverados produced in 2014 were recalled for exhaust components that may overheat and melt plastic components installed nearby and for a faulty transmission oil cooler line that could leak. 2015 models were also recalled for a transmission position indicator fault that may not show the truck has engaged first gear, thus limiting the speed.
Silverado models built from 2015 to 2016 were subjected to a recall for the roof rail airbag inflator that may rupture and an inflator endcap that is at risk of detaching. Certain 2016 models were subjected to a recall for an airbag computer housing that is susceptible to fracturing and may obstruct the deployment of airbags in the event of a crash.
Since the 2014-2018 Silverado was subjected to so many recalls, you want to pay extra attention to ensure that previous owners returned the car to the dealership to have everything fixed. There is just one error code you'll most likely encounter when shopping for a 3rd-generation Chevrolet Silverado 1500:
- Code P06A3 indicates that there is something wrong with the fuel pressure.
