There are several recalls in progress for the GMC Sierra 1500 pickup truck as of June 2015, with most recalls affecting trucks from the 2013, 2014 and 2015 model years. The issues prompting these recalls include potential tie rod separations, fire risks and airbag issues.
One of the major recalls affecting the GMC Sierra 1500 and several other General Motors trucks is due to the potential for these vehicles to roll away when parked due to a transmission fault. These vehicles may shift into neutral without warning, releasing the parking brake and allowing the vehicle to roll freely. Another major recall is due to faulty exhaust management software that can allow the truck's exhaust system to overheat and pose a fire risk.
