Big GM recall involves 14 models
Metal slivers in the chassis control module could cause an electrical short
DETROIT—General Motors is recalling more than 117,000 vehicles from the 2013 and 2014 model years for a defect that could cause them to stall.
The recall involves the Chevrolet Tahoe, Suburban, Traverse, Express and Silverado; the Cadillac CTS, Escalade and Escalade ESV; the GMC Yukon, Yukon XL, Acadia, Savana and Sierra; and the Buick Enclave.
GM says metal slivers in the chassis control module could cause an electrical short. If that happens, the vehicle could stall.
GM knows of no accidents or injuries related to the defect. It believes only 1 per cent of the vehicles being recalled are affected.
The recall includes 97,540 vehicles sold in the U.S. and 20,201 exported elsewhere. Around 4,500 vehicles haven’t yet been sold.
GM will notify owners. Dealers will replace the module for free.
