Three New Safety Recalls by General Motors Co.

Beginning of the New Year for the General Motors Co. was with 3 new recalls for about 84000 Sports Utility Vehicles and Pick-up Trucks, saying their ignition systems may have problems that could affect engine power.

Ignition problems triggered dozens of recalls from GM via 2014. After accidents that caused some-more than 40 deaths, an automaker removed some-more than 2.5 million vehicles. No crashes or injuries were reported. GM expects that fewer than 500 will be affected by the defect, an ignition lock actuator with an outer diameter that exceeds specifications. The affected vehicles mainly include Chevrolet Silverado HD of model years 2011 and 2012, Silverado LD, Suburban, Tahoe, Avalanche, GMC Sierra LD, Sierra HD, Yukon, Yukon XL Cadillac Escalade and ESV and EXT versions.

The first recall by General Motors is mainly focused on the potential defect in the electrical system of the vehicles. The defective ignition switches in these vehicles can lead to shutting down of the engine and prevent deployment of the front airbags in the event of a crash.

The second recall involves 56 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra pickup trucks, which were produced during Sep–Oct 2014. The automaker is recalling these vehicles due to concerns related to a faulty hose clamp.

The last recall by General Motors covers 152 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC 1500 pickup trucks of model year 2015. The company has issued the recall due to concerns regarding the rear axle shaft, which could fracture when the vehicles are driven.

In 2014, General Motors faced a challenging situation due to the delay in recalling 2.6 million vehicles with defective ignition switches. The automaker has launched a program to compensate the victims and families affected by crashes caused by the problem.
