GM recall for Traverse, Escalade, Canyon and more

The General never seems to get a break in these trying times, but who can blame them? Well, surely owners of various GM trucks know who to blame.

The NHTSA has ordered a recall on the Chevrolet Traverse, Tahoe, Avalanche, Colorado and Suburban, as well the Cadillac Escalade and GMC Canyon and Yukon models.

15,393 Traverse crossovers, all 2009 models, are being recalled for a parking brake cable link that is not to federal specifications. According to the official press release, the parking brake pedal may cause the cable link to snap. Dealers will replace the cable link connector for free. Oddly, the recall does not make mention of GM’s other Lambda-based three-row crossovers, which include the Buick Enclave, GMC Acadia, and Saturn Outlook.

Additionally, 27,189 body-on-frame GM SUVs and pickups are being recalled due to potential faults with their fuel system control modules. The modules might have a seal problem that allows water in, which could then cause a short-circuit or open-circuit, a development that could potentially trigger a host of warning lights or render the vehicle inoperable. Dealers will install a new fuel system control module unit at no cost.
