There’s another airbag recall in the news!

On Monday, November 23rd, The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration ordered GM to recall 7 million pickups and SUVs equipped with airbags made by Takata – a now-bankrupt company.

The initial recall occurred six years ago and resulted in the largest auto recall in history. Previously, GM had recalled nearly 800,000 vehicles but argued that these additional vehicles used a different kind of inflator than the devices in the earlier recall. GM’s argument was rejected by The National Traffic Safety Administration and was ordered to recall 5.9 million of the vehicles registered in the United States.

The recall includes model years 2007 to 2014 and covers the Cadillac Escalade; the Chevrolet Avalanche, Silverado, Suburban and Tahoe; and the GMC Sierra and Yukon. Owners will not be charged for recall repairs and will be notified with information on how to get your vehicle serviced. Or, you can enter your vehicle’s VIN number here to see if your vehicle was included in this recall.

    2007? 13 years ago. I thought they did not purchase this brand. No fears, as they have Hope’s for electric cars.
    Less than 1 percent buy them. All have 2nd gas cars and most sell when the tax credit ends.
    Enjoy if you voted for it!

    Thanks a for posting. We have a model listed on the recall, but ran the VIN on that site and luckily it’s not included.
