Recall number: 14V118000
Recall date: 03/17/2014

Problem Summary:

GENERAL MOTORS LLC (GM) IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2008-2013 BUICK ENCLAVE AND GMC ACADIA AND 2009-2013 CHEVROLET TRAVERSE AND 2008-2010 SATURN OUTLOOK VEHICLES. IN THE AFFECTED VEHICLES, INCREASED RESISTANCE IN THE DRIVER AND PASSENGER SEAT MOUNTED SIDE IMPACT AIR BAG (SIAB) WIRING HARNESSES MAY RESULT IN THE SIAB AND SEAT BELT PRETENSIONERS NOT DEPLOYING IN THE EVENT OF A CRASH.

Consequence:

FAILURE OF THE SIDE IMPACT AIR BAGS AND SEAT BELT PRETENSIONERS TO DEPLOY IN A CRASH INCREASE THE RISK OF INJURY TO THE DRIVER AND FRONT SEAT OCCUPANT.

Corrective Action:

GM WILL NOTIFY OWNERS, AND DEALERS WILL REPLACE THE AFFECTED HARNESS CONNECTIONS WITH SOLDERED CONNECTIONS, FREE OF CHARGE. THE MANUFACTURER HAS NOT YET PROVIDED A NOTIFICATION SCHEDULE. BUICK OWNERS MAY CONTACT THE OWNER CENTER AT 1-800-521-7300, CHEVROLET OWNERS AT 1-866-694-6546, SATURN AT 1-800-553-6000, AND GMC OWNERS AT 1-866-996-9463. GM'S NUMBER FOR THIS RECALL IS 14030. NOTE: VEHICLES REPAIRED AS PART OF CUSTOMER SATISFACTION CAMPAIGN 10085 AND SPECIAL COVERAGE 10335 HAVE ALREADY HAD THE SUBJECT CONDITION REPAIRED AND THEREFORE ARE NOT INCLUDED IN THE SAFETY RECALL.


SEAT BELTS

Recall number: 10V375000
Recall date: 08/12/2010

Problem Summary:

GENERAL MOTORS IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2009-2010 CHEVROLET TRAVERSE, BUICK ENCLAVE, GMC ACADIA, AND SATURN OUTLOOK VEHICLES. THE SECOND ROW SEAT SIDE TRIM SHIELD RESTRICTS THE UPWARD ROTATION OF THE SAFETY BELT BUCKLE WHEN THE SEAT BACK IS RETURNED TO A SEATING POSITION AFTER BEING FOLDED FLAT. IF THE BUCKLE CONTACTS THE SEAT FRAME, ADDITIONAL EFFORT IS REQUIRED TO RETURN THE SEAT TO A SEATING POSITION. IF SUFFICIENT FORCE IS APPLIED, THE BUCKLE COVER COULD BE PUSHED DOWN THE STRAP, EXPOSING AND PARTIALLY DEPRESSING THE RED RELEASE BUTTON.

Consequence:

THE SAFETY BELT MAY NOT RESTRAIN THE OCCUPANT AS INTENDED DURING A CRASH, INCREASING THE RISK OF INJURY TO THE SEAT OCCUPANT.

Corrective Action:

DEALERS WILL MODIFY THE SECOND ROW SEAT SIDE TRIM SHIELDS. IF A SAFETY BELT BUCKLE IS DAMAGED, DEALERS WILL REPLACE IT FREE OF CHARGE. THE SAFETY RECALL IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN ON OR BEFORE AUGUST 31, 2010. OWNERS MAY CONTACT CHEVROLET AT 1-800-630-2438, BUICK AT 1-866-608-8080, GMC AT 1-866-996-9463, AND SATURN AT 1-800-972-8876, OR AT THE OWNER CENTER AT WWW.GMOWNERCENTER.COM.

ELECTRICAL SYSTEM

Recall number: 10V240000
Recall date: 06/04/2010

Problem Summary:

GM IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2006-2009 BUICK, LUCERNE; CADILLAC DTS; HUMMER H2; MODEL YEAR 2008-2009 BUICK ENCLAVE; CADILLAC CTS; MODEL YEAR 2007-2009 CADILLAC ESCALADE, ESCALADE ESV, ESCALADE EXT; CHEVROLET AVALANCHE, SILVERADO, SUBURBAN, TAHOE; GMC ACADIA, SIERRA, YUKON, YUKON XL; SATURN OUTLOOK; AND MODEL YEAR 2009 CHEVROLET TRAVERSE VEHICLES EQUIPPED WITH A HEATED WASHER FLUID SYSTEM (HWFS). A RECALL WAS IMPLEMENTED IN 2008 TO ADD A FUSE TO THE CONTROL CIRCUIT HARNESS TO ADDRESS THE POTENTIAL CONSEQUENCES OF A PRINTED CIRCUIT BOARD (PCB) ELECTRICAL SHORT. HOWEVER, THERE HAVE BEEN NEW REPORTS OF THERMAL INCIDENTS ON HWFS MODULES AFTER THIS IMPROVEMENT WAS INSTALLED. THESE INCIDENTS RESULTED FROM A NEW FAILURE MODE ATTRIBUTED TO THE DEVICE'S THERMAL PROTECTION FEATURE. THE SIGNIFICANCE VARIES FROM MINOR DISTORTION TO CONSIDERABLE MELTING OF THE PLASTIC AROUND THE HWFS FLUID CHAMBER.

Consequence:

IT IS POSSIBLE FOR THE HEATED WASHER MODULE TO IGNITE AND A FIRE MAY OCCUR.

Corrective Action:

DEALERS WILL PERMANENTLY DISABLE AND REMOVE THE HEATED WASHER FLUID MODULE. AN UPDATED PAGE FOR THE OWNER MANUAL WILL BE PROVIDED AND INSERTED IN THE OWNER MANUAL TO DOCUMENT THAT THE FEATURE HAS BEEN PERMANENTLY DISABLED AND REMOVED FROM THE VEHICLE. THE SAFETY RECALL IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN ON OR BEFORE JUNE 11, 2010. OWNERS MAY CONTACT BUICK AT 1-866-608-8080, CADILLAC AT 1-866-982-2339, CHEVROLET AT 1-800-630-2438, SATURN AT 1-800-972-8876, GMC AT 1-866-996-9463 AND HUMMER AT 1-800-732-5493 OR AT THE OWNER CENTER AT WWW.GMOWNERCENTER.COM.

Consequence:

THE DRIVER MAY NOT BE ABLE TO RESTART THE VEHICLE AND THE VEHICLE COULD ROLL AWAY AFTER THE DRIVER HAS EXITED THE VEHICLE, RESULTING IN A POSSIBLE CRASH WITHOUT PRIOR WARNING.
