Over 117,000 Vehicles Affected By Latest GM Recall

DETROIT (CBSNewYork/AP) — General Motors announced Thursday that it is recalling 117,651 vehicles from the 2013 and 2014 model years for a defect that could cause them to stall.

The recall involves the Chevrolet Tahoe, Suburban, Traverse, Express and Silverado; the Cadillac CTS, Escalade and Escalade ESV; the GMC Yukon, Yukon XL, Acadia, Savana and Sierra; and the Buick Enclave.

GM said metal slivers in the chassis control module could cause an electrical short. If that happens, the vehicle could stall.

GM knows of no accidents or injuries related to the defect. It believes only 1 percent of the vehicles being recalled are affected.

The recall includes 97,540 vehicles sold in the U.S. and 20,201 exported elsewhere. Around 4,500 vehicles haven’t yet been sold.

GM will notify owners. Dealers will replace the module for free.

GM has recalled more than 29 million vehicles around the world this year for a range of mechanical issue, CBS News reported. At least 23 people have been killed in crashes linked to faulty ignition switches, a mediator hired to oversee compensation for victims said this week.
