Clearly the automaker is not having the best of times.
This past Friday, GM announced yet another recall, only this time it wasn’t for older models. No, it was for a small but still significant number of 2014 and 2015 pickups and SUVs. A total of 500 vehicles have been recalled due to a potential flaw in the sensor that controls the airbags. Yeah, not good. GM claims the recall will fix "a potentially faulty supplier part in the sensing diagnostic module that controls the vehicle air bags." So which vehicles are affected?
They are the 2014 and 2015 Chevy Silverado, Suburban, and Tahoe as well as their GMC counterparts, the Sierra, Yukon and Yukon XL. As previously mentioned, just 500 vehicles are affected here, but GM is still unsure just how many of those trucks have been sold and or remain on dealership lots. GM did send dealers a list of vehicle identification numbers in order to track down those affected. And just to be completely safe, GM also instructed dealers to halt sales of an additional 3,500 new pickups and SUVs until the problem is figured and solved. Also last week, GM sent Cadillac dealers a bulletin regarding “suspect parts” that were used on a shipment of parts to fix an airbag defect on previously recalled 2015 Escalades.
