The first recall concerns 6,768 units of the Chevrolet Colorado and the GMC Canyon from the 2011MY due to a failure in a transmission clip that may not engage the “Parking” mode even though the driver has moved the lever to the appropriate position. GM’s dealers will repair the faulty automatic transmission free of charge, and the recall is expected to begin on July 19.
The second recall campaign, involves 739 Cadillac Escalade and Escalade ESV, Chevrolet Silverado, Suburban 1500 and Tahoe and GMC Sierra, Yukon and Yukon XL 1500, all from the 2011MY.
According to government agency, in the aforementioned vehicles the intermediate steering shaft attaching bolts may not have been tightened to the proper specification. As a consequence, the joints may separate causing the driver to lose control of steering and cause an accident. The recall will begin on July 13.
