According to a series of news reports, General Motors has just launched a recall. And what worries us is that, unfortunately, this recall impacts thousands of very popular vehicles across the country.
The reports show that thousands of trucks manufactured by General Motors are being recalled after the firm learned that a fuel tank issue may lead to a fire.
Recalled vehicles include the 2011 through 2015 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra 3500 trucks.
Recalled trucks come with low-fuel-level sensors that are part of the front tank that could stick, increasing the risk of the fuel leaking as it may overfill. If this occurs, the front talk may expand, touching the drive shaft and making it more likely to experience a hole. This would then lead to a leak that may be exposed to an igniting source, increasing the risk of a fire.
While the company says that no fires or incidents have been associated with this recall, it’s important that consumers who may have been impacted are acting accordingly and making sure that their trucks are being repaired promptly.
GM will be contacting impacted vehicle owners starting December 18. If you have one of the recalled vehicles and you’re concerned for your safety and the safety of your loved ones since the issue associated with this recall may take a few weeks to get resolved, contact GM directly. Have all of your questions and concerns addressed immediately.
If you know someone who may have been impacted by this recall, reach out to them and let them know that this issue may lead to serious consequences if not addressed.
