GM Announces Six More Recalls


GM announced six new recalls that cover 717,950 Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet and GMC models from the 2010 to 2015 model years. The bulk of the recalls — 414,333 cars — involves late-model GM midsize SUVs, the Chevrolet Camaro sports cars and two Buick sedans, all with power height-adjustable seats. The power adjusters have faulty bolts, which may cause the seats to move up or down freely; GM says owners should not use the height adjuster until dealers replace the bolts. The automaker says it's aware of one crash and three injuries but no fatalities that stem from the issue.

Another 57,242 Chevrolet Impalas have a new power-steering issue; GM says it's aware of one crash but no injuries or fatalities from it.

The automaker says it's unaware of any crashes related to the remainder of the recalls, which include 124,008 recalls for potentially incomplete seat welding on two Chevrolet sedans, a trio of Cadillac cars, the Buick Encore and the Chevrolet Silverado/GMC Sierra pickups. Another 120,426 Chevrolet Malibu and Buick Regal sedans have faulty turn-signal indicators in the instrument cluster, while 1,919 Chevrolet Sparks have an improperly fastened front-suspension component. Finally, GM will recall just 22 Chevrolet Tahoe/Suburban and GMC Yukon SUVs with improperly attached roof rails.

This latest batch brings GM's total to 25.5 million recalls in the U.S. thus far in 2014. None of today's recalls involve ignition issues, which are responsible for about 14.4 million GM recalls so far in 2014. Note that those figures don't add up to the prior totals plus today's announcement, as GM told reporters this afternoon that it double-counted certain models in earlier recalls this year, which led to a larger figure than the actual number.

We'll have full details, including model years, on all six recalls as soon as possible.

Sure, why not. Nobody cares anymore. It just another number...

they should put it in the scheduled maint section of the user manual. every 10k miles bring car in for recall.


Do you get a loaner from GM when you bring your lemon for unscheduled maintenance?


be very careful where you take your vehicle to ...i took mine to Sapaugh Motors and now the horn and steering controls wont work and they said it had nothing to do with the work done for the recall..however another dealer adv yes it does but i have to take it where the work was done... :(
