GM Recalls Continue to Rise: 2014-15 Pickups Hit

Updated Apr 1, 2014


2014-2015 Silverado/Sierra 1500s Add To GM Recalls

General Motors will conduct a safety recall of 490,200 2014-2015 full-size pickups and SUVs because of  potential transmission cooler line issues.

The recall affects Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and GMC Sierra 1500 pickups, and 2015 Chevrolet Suburban, Tahoe, and GMC Yukon and Yukon XL SUVs equipped with a 6-speed automatic transmission.

GM has determined that these vehicles may have a transmission oil cooler line that is not securely seated in its fitting. 

If the line is not securely seated and transmission oil leaks from the fitting, the oil could contact a hot surface and result in a vehicle fire. GM is aware of three incidents and no injuries.

GM dealers will inspect the fittings for leaks. GM anticipates mailing the first owner letter the week of April 28, 2014.

UPDATE: NHTSA Recall Notice#: 14V152
