Manufacturer: General Motors LLC

SUMMARY:
General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2014-2015 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra vehicles, and model year 2015 GMC Yukon and Chevrolet Suburban and Tahoe vehicles. In the affected vehicles, an electrical signal short may cause the transfer case to shift to neutral without the driver's input.

CONSEQUENCE:
If the transfer case switches to neutral while the vehicle is parked and the parking brake is not in use, the vehicle may roll away increasing the risk of injury to bystanders. If the transfer case switches to neutral while the vehicle is being driven, the vehicle would lose drive power, increasing the risk of a crash.

REMEDY:
GM will notify owners, and dealers will re-program the software in the transfer case control module, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in early August 2014. Owners may contact General Motors customer service at 1-800-222-1020 (Chevrolet), or 1-800-462-8782 (GMC). GM's number for this recall is 14192.

NOTES:
Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.

"free of charge"? BS The only way that statement is true is if they picked the vehicle up, left a loaner of equal quality, and brought the vehicle back full of gas and oil. Then paid for the inconvenience.

Government Motors quality workmanship. All the Obama supporting union workers must be illegals who cannot read English. Oh wait! That is no longer a requirement.
