GM Recalls 2014 Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra 1500s

General Motors has recalled almost 700,000 2014 Chevy Silverado 1500s and 2014 GMC Sierra 1500s  for a potentially dangerous steering defect.

These trucks’ power steering assist (“EPS”) can cut out, especially during low speed turns, and then return suddenly.  This may result in a loss of control of the vehicle.  Additional symptoms of the problem may include other electrical systems cutting out and warning light indicators going off.

The loss and sudden return of EPS assist typically happens within a one second period and is caused by an electrical/software issue.

The recall follows National Highway Traffic Safety Administration report #17V414 on General Motor’s Electronic Power Steering assist on this make and model vehicle.  NHTSA said the fault occurs when the system voltage drops below 8.8 volts for more than one second, or during low-speed turn. EPS assist is disabled until voltage returns to 9 volts for a minimum of 40 milliseconds, at which point EPS assist returns.  According to GM the underlying problem is a defect in the EPS module software.

GM’s fix is to reprogram the EPS module.  Consumers can also call Chevrolet customer service at 1-800-222-1020 or GMC customer service at 1-800-432-8782 for assistance. GM’s number for this recall is 17276.

Vehicle Identification No. (VIN): 3GCUKREH4FG…

SUMMARY:

“The trucks have a vibration that is felt in the steering wheel, floor, seats, accelerator and brake pedals etc. while driving.  The major consensus is that the worst is 76 mph, yet it is felt to a lesser degree at any speed, with some being worse than others.  There are a large number of trucks with this issue, yet General Motors refuses to do anything about it.  It began within a couple weeks of purchasing my truck.  I found people first reporting the issue in 2015, and more recently it continues with the 2015 and 2016 model years.”

Vehicle Identification No. (VIN): 3GCUKTEC2FG…

SUMMARY:

“I purchased a brand new 2015 Silverado on 7/24/15 and at about 700 miles or so I noticed a bad vibration as the truck was in motion, took it back to the dealer cause I was very upset it being a $56,000.00 truck and all.  They wanted me to leave the truck overnight and did not offer any vehicle to drive so I did not leave it with them.  So I took the truck to Ratfield Tire and had the tires balanced, all 4 tires were out of balance, which I paid for out of pocket myself not GM…  This did not fix the problem of the severe vibration going down the road.  I then took the truck to another dealer for the vibration, they test drove it and confirmed the vibration, did a road force balance on all 4 wheels, then replaced all tires, this also has not fixed the problem, the truck is still vibrating, the entire seat just shakes, I am presently waiting on another appointment with dealer.  The service manager told me himself after replacing all 4 tires that it felt like a balance issue inside the motor which there is no fix, now that is crazy… I feel that this truck should be replaced or my money back entirely.  The truck only has a little over 2000 miles cause it makes me sick to drive it…”
