Recall Up Date: 2012 Chevrolet Express & Suburban, 2012 GMC Savana & Yukon XL

The Problem: GM will recall certain 2012 Chevy models and GMC twins due to a steering gear issue. The affected models include the Chevy Suburban/GMC Yukon XL SUVs, and the Chevy Express/GMC Savana vans. The steering gear pitman shaft may not have been adequately hardened in these vehicles and could fracture. If the steering gear pitman shaft breaks, loss of steering could might happen – and as with most things recall-related – a crash could occur.

The Fix: GM will notify owners of affected vehicles, and dealers will inspect and if necessary, replace the steering gear pitman shaft free of charge. The recall is expected to start on April 4, 2012. GM’s safety recall campaign number is 12055.

Number of Vehicles Affected: 6159 Chevrolet Express and Suburban, and GMC Savana and Yukon XL models are affected by this recall.
