General Motors (GM) is a well-known automotive manufacturer throughout the world, but even they are not immune to problematic vehicles experiencing safety concerns. Recently, two separate recalls were announced by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) that impact certain GM models.
The first recall affects 2017-2019 Chevrolet Silverado 2500, 3500, and GMC Sierra 2500, 3500 vehicles equipped with a dual fuel tank option. The recall is due to a potential rear fuel tank failure that may cause the engine to stall. This is a serious safety risk for drivers and passengers, as a sudden stall in traffic can result in an accident.
The second recall affects the 2023 Chevrolet Blazer and Traverse, 2023 Cadillac XT5 and 2023 GMC Acadia vehicles. The issue with these vehicles is a missing retaining ring in the half-shaft assembly. This can cause the half-shaft to separate from the vehicle, leading to a complete loss of power and control.
If you own one of the vehicles listed in the recalls, it is important to have the problem addressed as soon as possible. If you feel like you have a lemon vehicle that is continually having safety issues, you can take legal action against the manufacturer.
