GM Recalls 800,000 Trucks

August 8, 2017 0 Comments

One major US automaker has decided to recall hundreds of thousands of trucks due to the potential for a major defect.

As Reuters reported, General Motors is planning to recall around 800,000 2014 Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra pickups. According to documents released by NHTSA, the recall is due to concerns that the vehicles might suddenly lose their electric power steering ability, particularly “during low-speed turning maneuvers.” The recall includes some 690,000 vehicles in the United States and around 80,000 north of the border, in Canada. As Fortune pointed out, these Silverado and Sierra pickups were both part of a previous widespread airbag recall back in 2016.

2014 was dubbed the year of the recall, due to some 64 million vehicles being recalled, shattering the previous record. While 2017 doesn’t appear to be on a similar trajectory, what is your take on this and other recent automaker recalls?
