GMC Sierra 1500 Recalls & Reliability

Recalls

There have been 2 safety recalls issued from NHTSA.

SEATSRecall Date: 10/17/2013
  • Summary: General Motors (GM) is recalling certain model year 2014 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra 1500 vehicles manufactured August 1, 2013, through September 10, 2013, and equipped with manual reclining seatbacks. In the affected vehicles, either of the front seatbacks may have play. Thus, these vehicles fail to conform to the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 202a, "Head Restraints."
  • Potential Number of Units Affected: 18,972
  • Consequence: If the vehicle is struck from behind, the head restraint may not properly protect occupants, increasing the risk of injury.
  • Remedy: GM has notified owners. Dealers will inspect the seatback recliner mechanisms and make adjustments, as needed, free of charge. Owners may contact Chevrolet at 1-800-222-1020 and GMC at 1-800-462-8782. GM's recall number is 13323.
  • Notes: Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
  • NHTSA Campaign ID: 13V488000
AIR BAGSRecall Date: 07/19/2013
  • Summary: General Motors is recalling certain model year 2014 Chevrolet Silverado trucks manufactured June 1, 2013, through June 30, 2013; and model year 2014 GMC Sierra trucks manufactured June 4, 2013, through June 30, 2013. Welding on the passenger airbag inflator may fracture when the airbag is deployed, allowing some gas from the air bag inflator to vent behind the instrument panel, instead of into the air bag.
  • Potential Number of Units Affected: 843
  • Consequence: As a result the air bag may not fully inflate, increasing the risk of injury.
  • Remedy: General Motors will notify owners and dealers will replace the passenger air bag module, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin during August 2013. Owners may contact Chevrolet at 1-866-694-6546 and GMC at 1-866-996-9463. GM's recall number is 13230.
  • Notes: Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 or go to www.safercar.gov.
  • NHTSA Campaign ID: 13V315000
