General Motors will be asking the owners of certain 2020 GM automobiles to return to their dealerships to fix a problem affecting the fuel supply system in their vehicles. The vehicles affected include 2020 Buick Enclave, Cadillac XT5, Cadillac XT6, Chevrolet Traverse and GMC Acadia.
According to the defect report, the fuel pump assemblies in these vehicles may have been produced with burrs inside the mixing tube. Over time, these burrs could prevent the transfer of fuel from the secondary side of the fuel tank to the primary side. At low fuel levels, the engine may not receive enough fuel and the engine could stall unexpectedly. A stall without warning, especially at high speeds, could increase the risk of an accident.
Dealers will correct the problem by replacing the fuel pump module. GM’s number for this recall is N202314760 and the NHTSA campaign number is 20V-639.
General Motors has decided that a safety defect exists in certain 2018-2020 Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet and GMC vehicles. They will be notifying owners with instructions about how to get their vehicle repaired.
According to the defect report, some of these vehicles are equipped with a start / stop accumulator that may have missing bolts on the end cap. These loose bolts could result in a transmission oil leak that could progress into a complete loss of vehicle propulsion. A transmission leak in the presence of an ignition source could also result in a vehicle fire.

According to the defect report, a connector in the system may have become contaminated during the manufacturing process. The contamination could interrupt the communication between the sensor and the system, under certain conditions. If communication is interrupted, electronic brake assist could be lost and the driver will require extra pedal force to stop the vehicle. Drivers may also notice an illuminated brake warning light in the instrument panel and the vehicle speed may be limited.
Owners receiving notices will be asked to return to their dealers to have the electronic brake boost module replaced. GM’s number for this recall is A202307260 and the NHTSA campaign number is 20V-588.
General Motors has identified a defect which could affect vehicle safety in certain 2018 Cadillac Escalade, Chevrolet Silverado 1500, Chevrolet Tahoe, GMC Sierra 1500 and GMC Yukon vehicles equipped with 5.3L or 6.2L V8 engines. They will be asking owners to return to their dealerships to have the Electronic Brake Control Module reprogrammed.
According to the defect report, these vehicles may have a condition in which the engine mounted vacuum pump output could decrease over time. If the vacuum level drops, drivers may notice a vibration in the brake pedal, increased braking effort, a hard brake pedal and/or increased stopping distances. The drivers information center “Service Brakes” warning light will illuminate and a diagnostic code will be set. The condition is most prevalent at low speed and soft braking.
Dealers will correct the problem by reprogramming the electronic brake control module to improve how the system uses the hydraulic brake boost assist function when the vacuum assist is depleted. GM’s number for this recall is N202300860 and the NHTSA campaign number is 20V-603.

The Escalade is a full-size luxury SUV engineered and manufactured by Cadillac. It was Cadillac’s first major entry into the luxury SUV market in response to competition from Mercedes-Benz, Lexus and Ford. Today, Cadillac makes their Escalade in an EXT, ESV and a hybrid version as well.
The 2015-2016 Cadillac Escalade models have received some of the highest complaints and recalls of all the model years. Although there have been no recalls for transmission problems, complaints are common. Drivers say there is a “distinct clunking and surging when accelerating and decelerating, and the transmission becomes stuck in gear.” The 2015 Cadillac models have 167 manufacturer communications / TSB’s affecting the power train, many which recommend flushing and changing the transmission fluid. The problem is a common complaint with many 2015-2019 Cadillac, Chevrolet and GMC owners and is part of an ongoing class action lawsuit between vehicle owners and GM.
Drivers of certain 2015-2020 Cadillac Escalade vehicles believe that shaking and vibrations are caused by the same transmission defect, but some attorneys say the symptoms are caused by a defective drive shaft. The problem has been so wide spread, it has been coined “The Chevy Shake”. A few owners say they fixed the problem by replacing the aluminum drive shaft with a custom steel drive shaft, but GM continues to replace parts with the same defective parts.
Electrical defects are common in many newer Cadillac Escalade models. Heating and air conditioning are the top, with exterior lighting and software problems following close behind. Other complaints include: thermostat gives wrong information or just doesn’t work, no control of audio, Bluetooth intermittently disconnects, complete failure of the instrument cluster, repeated electrical shorts and temporary loss of the electric power steering.

The eight-speed automatic transmission found in certain 2015-2019 Chevrolet, Cadillac and GMC vehicles have a defect that makes the vehicle hesitate and jerk when accelerating or slowing down. Owners say that the 8L90 and 8L45 transmissions experience hard shifting and eventual engine damage.
According to a class action lawsuit filed last year, “Drivers attempting to accelerate or decelerate feel a hesitation, followed by a significant shake, shudder, jerk, clunk, or ‘hard shift’ when the vehicle’s automatic transmission changes gears.” The shuddering, shaking, jerking and hesitation is believed to be related to friction within the transmission and/or torque converter causing metal shavings to be circulated throughout the transmission.
