With just over two months left this year, General Motors this week reached 76 auto defect recalls this year.
Fourteen 2013-2014 models have been recalled for chassis control module contamination where one of the computer modules can short circuit due to metallic slivers, which can lead to vehicle stalling.
And then, nearly 290,000 Cadillac SRX models from 2010-2015 have loose nuts in the rear-suspension toe adjuster link that could cause the SUVs to sway or wander in the lane at highway speeds.
Several Auto Safety Recalls
Another 89,294 Chevrolet Spark models from 2013–2015 have secondary hood latches that can rust and cause the striker to disengage. More ignition switch problems affect the 2008-2009 Pontiac G8 and 2011-2013 Chevy Caprice Police Patrol vehicle models.
The vehicles have faulty transmission interlocks that can cause the driver to shift out of park without hitting the brake or remove the key without engaging park. No injuries or accidents have been reported from any of these recalls.
Also, Associated Press reports that Omix, Ada, a company that makes after-market floor mats for GM full-size pickup trucks and SUVs is recalling more than 45,000 of them because they can interfere with the gas pedals.
The recall covers Cabela’s Custom Fit, Line-X Truck Gear, Rugged Ridge All-Terrain and Tread Lightly mats. They can more forward unintentionally and stop the gas pedal from returning to the idle position.
That can increase the risk of a car crash.
The plastic mats fit Chevy and GMC trucks and SUVs from 1999 through 2014.
If You Own a Recalled GM Vehicle
If you are the owner of a recalled GM vehicle, it is important that you understand the seriousness of a safety recall. A safety recall is issued only when there is the danger that a crash could occur.
So, paying prompt attention to fixing your vehicle is important to your safety and the safety of your loved ones.
Take your vehicle to a dealer right away for an inspection. Vehicles included in a recall must be fixed at no charge to consumers, under federal law.
