GM Recalls 600,000 Four-Wheel-Drive Trucks and SUVs


GM recalls more than 600,000 four-wheel-drive trucks and SUVs because a software error could activate the braking system

General Motors is issuing a recall which covers the 2014-2018 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, 2015-2020 Chevrolet Suburban, 2015-2020 Chevrolet Tahoe, 2014-2018 GMC Sierra 1500 and 2015-2020 GMC Yukon models.

The recall surrounds an activation of the braking software thats triggered by the failure of a wheel-speed sensor, leading to unintended braking on the opposite wheel. That would cause the vehicle to pull to one side, increasing the risk of a crash. That risk can be eliminated by driving in two-wheel drive mode until the recall repair is made, GM said.

GM said 653,370 vehicles worldwide were potentially affected, but no accidents have been reported.

GM will reprogram the vehicles’ software free of charge.
