In 2011, GM recalled some Chevy Silverados, Suburbans and Tahoes because of potentially loose bolts on the intermediate steering shaft that could lead to a loss of steering. In 2013, GM recalled some 2012-2013 Chevy Silverados because of potentially inaccurate fuel gauge readings that could lead to stalls. In 2014, GM recalled some 2011-2012 Chevy Avalanches, Silverados, Suburbans and Tahoes because the ignition lock actuator could bind and cause a loss of engine, steering and braking power.
In 2015, GM issued 15 recalls of recently manufactured Chevrolet trucks, often including Suburbans, Tahoes and Silverados. It recalled some 2013-2014 Chevy hybrid-fuel Silverados because the required CNG fuel-only label was too small, which could cause people to use the wrong fuel. It recalled some Chevy Avalanches and Silverados manufactured between November 7, 2012, and December 18, 2012 because of a potentially defective park lock cable or steering column lock actuator gear in the lock module assembly, either of which could cause the transmission to unexpectedly shift out of the park position.
Additional recalls in 2015 involved issues such as potential electrical shorts in the chassis electronic module and defective welds on the seat hook bracket assembly. SaferCar.gov features details of these and other recalls.
