GM has issued five recalls that cover multiple cars today. Recall #1 involves the 2004-2012 Chevy Malibu, 2004-2007 Chevy Malibu Maxx, 2005-2010 Pontiac G6, and the 2007-2010 Saturn Aura. This recall involves just under 2.5 million cars and is for a problem with the wiring harness associated with the brake lamp.
Recall #2 involves the 2005-2007 Chevy Corvette and includes just over 111,000 cars. It is meant to fix a serious problem with the low-beam headlights. GM says this problem appears to be in the 2008-2013 Corvettes as well, but that they don’t need to issue a recall for these model years as they can be fixed via their Customer Satisfaction Program.
Recall #3 is for the 2014 Chevrolet Malibu and affects over 140,000 cars that have a 2.5-liter engine and stop/start tech. There is a software issue in the electronic control module that needs to be repaired. GM stated that they will upgrade the electronic control module in order to fix the problem.
Recall #4 is for the 2013-2014 Cadillac CTS. The 19,000 plus cars that are involved in this recall have a problem with the windshield wipers. This will be fixed by replacing the front wiper module.
Recall #5 involves the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado, the 2014 GMC Sierra, and the 2015 Chevy Tahoe. There are 477 vehicles that are being recalled here that suffer from an issue in the steering system. “The tie rod threaded attachment to the steering gear rack in these vehicles may not be tightened to specification. With this condition, the tie rod can separate from the steering rack and a crash could occur without prior warning,” says GM.
GM says that these cars do not need to be driven, even to the dealership to get the problems fixed. They advise people to call their dealership to have towing arranged to get their cars in for service.
