General Motors (NYSE:GM) has today announced its recall program and specified the vehicles it will work on.
The state of affairs
The manufacturer takes matters to do with product quality with utmost seriousness and will do anything to ensure the safety of its customers. It is one of the few leading companies that keep inspecting products even after selling them to ensure total conformation to the federal safety standard. A recall exercise is usually about saving lives and avoiding unnecessary losses.
This is the reason General Motors and other top-notch automakers will alert vehicle owners about the defect. The free repairs offered thereafter are free and thus less stressful to car owners since they don’t have to dig deeper into their pockets.
The recall will be in two shifts according to the business guru, and the guiding principles are quite clear.GM has disclosed that the total number of vehicles in the exercise, saying it expects to handle over 814,000 pickup trucks and cars.
A close outlook
Guiding documents show that the issues that need to be fixed are the battery cables and the electronic brake controls. This business has downplayed the rumors that have been moving around that it would be fixing cases of crashes, injuries, or fires.
The first segment of the recall will have the company focus on issues that would potentially result in a crash. It admits that software issues would negatively impact the antilock brake systems and electronic stability control. General Motors says it is looking out for its customers and will forget the costs involved to ensure their safety.
The U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration website has always been the link between the dealers and customers keen on receiving updates. The latest updates indicate efforts by dealers to undertake a reprogramming exercise on the brake computer.
The first recall focuses on 464,000 GMC Sierra 1500 pickup trucks, Chevrolet Silverado 1500, and Cadillac CT6 sedans. The second phase of the recall will cover about 350,000 vehicles. These will be the 2019 and 2020 Sierra and Silverado pickups. It will be about avoiding cases of fire that could result from defective electrical connections.
