GM recalls nearly 430000 more cars due to transmission issues – Maine News

In yet another recall announced by bigwig US automaker General Motors (GM) on Friday, the company has revealed that it is recalling nearly 430,000 more vehicles due to transmission issues.

The latest recall announced by GM brings the total number of recalls by the company for the year to 48. All the recalls announced by the automaker thus far this year have affected a total of more than 20 million cars.

The vehicles which are affected by GM’s latest recall – which essentially underscores four recalls – include 2014 to 2015 model-year Silverado, Sierra, Yukon, Tahoe, and Subarban. In addition, a few thousand Caprice model police cars are also being recalled.

The reason behind the recall of 2014 to 2015 Silverado, Sierra, Yukon, Tahoe, and Subarban is that they apparently have defective software which caused transmission problems. The Caprice model police cars being recalled have faulty windshield wipers.

Though GM claims that the transmission problem in the recently-recalled vehicles has not caused any crash or injuries, the company said: “In these vehicles, the transfer case may electronically switch to neutral without input from the driver. If this occurs while a vehicle is in motion, no power will go to the wheels. If the vehicle is stopped or parked, it may roll away if the parking brake is not set.”
