Recall Alert: 27,188 GM Vehicles
GM has issued a recall for 27,188 vehicles from the 2009 model year, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. Affected models include the Cadillac Escalade, Escalade ESV and Escalade EXT; the Chevrolet Avalanche, Colorado, Suburban and Tahoe; and the GMC Canyon, Yukon and Yukon XL.
The recall is due to a problem in the fuel system control module, which has a vulcanizing seal that may separate, allowing water to seep into the module. The water could cause a short circuit, possibly making the engine hard to start or causing it to not start at all or stall while driving.
Dealers will install a new fuel system module for free. Owners may contact Cadillac at 866-982-2339, Chevrolet at 800-630-2438 and GMC at 866-996-9463, or NHTSA’s hotline at 888-327-4236.
