Another 2.7 Million Recalls for GM

Another huge recall for American manufacturer GM. This time, more than 2.7 million vehicles are concerned, for a variety of reasons, ranging from ''mild inconvenience'' to '' catastrophic failure''. Of this number, 204,000 were sold in Canada.

Here are the cars affected by this recall:

  • 194,314 Chevrolet Malibu and Malibu Maxx, Pontiac G6 and Saturn Aura sold between 2004 and 2012  could have corrosion problems on the tail lights wiring.
  • 5,115 Chevrolet C6 Corvette from 2005 to 2007, in which the low beam headlights may suddenly fail.
  • 3,550 2014 Chevrolet Malibu where the hydraulic brake booster may be faulty, which may cause a need for higher pressure on the brake pedal to stop the vehicle.
  • 732 2013-2014 Cadillac CTS with a problem in the windshield wipers' motors, if the car had to be jump-started in the winter.
  • And finally, 33 2014 Chevrolet Silverado/GMC Sierra and 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe with weak tie rods, which may cause the loss of the vehicle's steering.

But there is a good side to all these recalls: GM authorizes them as soon as they see a trend in warranty jobs, they don't wait for the government to force a recall. Even better, no accidents or casualties have been reported so far.

GM predicts they will lose $100,000,000 in the second quarter, mainly because of recall-related fees.
