Skip to comments.GM recalling 55,000 trucks and SUVs over rollaway risk [Give 'em the TOYOTA Treatment!]

General Motors is recalling 54,686 full-size truck, SUV and van models due to a defect that could result in a rollaway accident. The recall covers 2013 Cadillac Escalade, Escalade ESV, and Escalade EXT; Chevrolet Avalanche, Express, Silverado HD, Silverado LD, Suburban, and Tahoe; and GMC Savana, Sierra HD, Sierra LD, Yukon, and Yukon XL models.
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the vehicles included in the recall may have been equipped with a fractured park lock cable or a malformed steering column lock actuator gear in the lock module assembly. As a result of that defect, it may be possible to shift the vehicle out of park without the key in the ignition or the brake pedal applied, which could increase the likelihood of a rollaway crash.
GM says it has not fielded any complaints of crashes or injuries linked to the recall.

And maybe the media well express outrage....
The line up of recall vehicles suggests that it’s mostly successful white conservatives so no need for media attention.
Anyone want to bet those defective parts weren’t made in China?
Goverment Motors strkes again.
Now GM. Ford had a recall on Escape models. On and on...
...but they were Union made.
There is no problem with QC. The problem lies with lazy incompetent Union workers
Six Sigma Socialists? No, socialists are the defective parts of mankind. DEFUND government and government motors. Let “it” live or die on its own. Plunder is job 1 of progressives. No quality, no accountability. Only defects dooming the rest of us.
“Anyone want to bet those defective parts werent made in China?”
My BIL, who works for Toyoto in the service department, once told me that a large percentage of parts for those vehicles had to be made inthe USA and the usual suspects when recalls happened were union made parts from the USA union shops.
Hey, it's only our tax money, why not have them build every vehicle twice?First time it doesn't matter how screwed up the thing is because they're on regular pay, but they'll get it right the second time when they're getting overtime pay plus the money they got the first time!!!
“The line up of recall vehicles suggests that its mostly successful white conservatives so no need for media attention.”
“...2013 Cadillac Escalade, Escalade ESV, and Escalade EXT...”
Are you SURE?
14,000,000 vehicle affected in 2009/2010, 680,000 in 03/2012, then 7,430,000 in last month's legal settlement w/ hundreds of cases filed.
Not sure I see a justified 'media outrage' here. But I'm also not saying the outrage was justified with Toyota's series of recalls.
