2015-GMC-SIERRA-ALL-TERRAIN-HD-4


Οι ανακλήσεις της GM δεν έχουν σταματημό, καθώς σήμερα ανακοίνωσε ότι 3.296 Chevrolet Silverado, Suburban, Tahoe και GMC Sierra, με το πρόβλημα να εντοπίζεται στον διακόπτη ανάφλεξης.

Συγκεκριμένα, τα κλειδιά μπορούν να κολλήσουν στη θέση “start” και μετά από κάποια λακκούβα ή κατά λάθος άγγιγμα τους να γυρίσουν στη θέση “accessory”. Αυτό συμβαίνει γιατί το “κλείδωμα” του κλειδιού στον διακόπτη έχει μεγαλύτερη εξωτερική διάμετρο απ’ότι επιτρέπουν οι προδιαγραφές. Όταν συμβεί το παραπάνω σενάριο σβήνει ο κινητήρας και ο οδηγός δεν χάνει κάθε υποβοήθηση των φρένων και του τιμονιού, ενώ μπορούν να επηρεαστούν και οι αερόσακοι.

Όμως, αυτή δεν είναι η μοναδική ανάκληση, καθώς η GM ανακοίνωσε ότι επιπλέον 414 οχήματα των μοντέλων Buick LaCrosse, Cadillac XTS, Chevrolet Camaro, Equinox, Malibu και GMC Terrain εμφάνισαν το πρόβλημα με τον αερόσακο της Takata. Συγκεκριμένα, το σύστημα πυροκροτητή-εκτόνωσης ενός πλευρικού αερόσακου απέτυχε σε μια δοκιμή στους -40 βαθμούς Κελσίου να απελευθερώσει το αέριο υψηλής πίεσης και να διαχωρίσει τα διαφορετικά συστατικά.

GM Statement

General Motors is recalling 3,073 full-size trucks from the 2014 and 2015 model years in the U.S. Some of these vehicles may have an ignition lock actuator gear with an outer diameter that exceeds specifications, which may make turning the ignition key difficult. The ignition key could get stuck in the “start” position. This may be more likely at higher interior ambient temperatures. If the vehicle is driven with the key stuck in the “start” position, and the vehicle experiences a significant jarring event or the vehicle’s interior temperature cools, the ignition lock cylinder could move out of the “start” position, rotate past the “run” position, and move into the “accessory” position, leading to loss of power steering assist, power brakes and potentially air bag deployment in certain crashes. Dealers will replace the ignition lock housing.

The affected vehicles are the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado LD, and GMC Sierra LD models and 2015 Chevrolet Silverado HD, Suburban, Tahoe, and 2015 GMC Sierra HD. GM is aware of five shutoffs but no crashes, injuries or fatalities related to this condition. Including Canada, Mexico and exports, the total recall population is 3,296.

On certain vehicles, a defect in the ignition lock actuator may make turning the ignition key difficult or cause the key to get stuck in the “start” position. This may be more likely to occur at higher interior ambient temperatures. If the vehicle is driven with the key stuck in the “start” position, and the vehicle experiences a significant jarring event or the vehicle’s interior temperature cools, the ignition key could move out of the “start” position, rotate past the “run” position, and move into the “accessory” position, causing the engine to shut off. This would result in a loss of motive power and affect power steering and power brake system function, which could increase the risk of a crash causing injury and/or damage to property. The timing of the key movement out of the “run” position, relative to the activation of the sensing algorithm in a crash event, may also result in the airbags not deploying in a subsequent collision, increasing the risk of injury.

Correction: Dealers will replace the ignition lock housing.

GM Statement:

General Motors is recalling 395 cars and crossovers in the U.S. because one of the front seat side air bags inflators may be defective. In the event of a deployment, the air bag’s inflator may rupture and the air bag may not properly inflate. The rupture could cause metal fragments to strike the vehicle occupants, potentially resulting in serious injury or death. GM is unaware of any incidents involving vehicles with these components, which were part of a lot in which one inflator failed acceptance testing at the supplier. Dealers will replace the side air bag module or modules in affected vehicles. Including Canada, Mexico and exports, the total population of the recall is 414, GM estimates 1 percent of the recalled vehicles may have the defect.

The vehicles in the recall are certain 2015 model Buick LaCrosse, Cadillac XTS, GMC Terrain and Chevrolet Camaro, Equinox and Malibus. Overnight letters are being sent to customers in possession of the vehicles and customers can enter their VIN on the https://vinrcl.safercar.gov/vin/ website or at http://GMOwnerCenter.com/recalls to see if their vehicle is part of the recall.
