Vehicles Affected: Approximately 113,000 model-year 2017-19 Chevrolet Trax SUVs

The Problem: A joint in one or both of the front lower-control arms may have been improperly welded. An improperly welded joint may break, resulting in the partial separation of the lower-control arm from the vehicle, which could cause the attached front wheel to toe outward, impacting the vehicle’s handling and steering and increasing the risk of crash.

The Fix: Dealers will inspect the left- and right-front lower-control arms, replacing them as necessary for free.

What Owners Should Do: Chevrolet manufacturer GM has not yet provided an owner noticification schedule. Owners can call Chevrolet at 800-222-1020, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or visit its website to check their vehicle identification number and learn more.
