Important Details About The New GM Vehicle Recalls

Vehicle recalls are a pretty common occurrence in the U.S. After all, no machine is perfect, and because vehicles are mass-produced, when one vehicle has a defect it’s possible that thousands have the same flaw. Still, we understand that having your car recalled can be a hassle—which is why we’re here to help you with the most recent GM recall notice.

Two significant GM recalls have been issued: One involving GM pickup trucks and SUVs dating back to 2015 models, and another that involves various models of GM cars, trucks, and SUVs. Not all vehicles being recalled are affected — about 1 million vehicles were recalled, though no injuries have been reported — but the recall includes many newer GM models to assure safety.

If you’re unsure if your vehicle has been recalled by GM, you can search by VIN here, or continue reading and contact your local Marshall GM dealer to learn when and how to receive recall repairs. Make sure to read each recall notice carefully so that you understand what parts are involved and what the recall entails, and you’ll be maintaining both your truck and your family’s peace of mind.
