The models included in the GMC speedometer recall are the Chevy Avalanche, Chevy Silverado, Chevy Suburban, Chevy Tahoe, Chevy Tahoe, Chevy Trailblazer, GMC Yukon, GMC Yukon XL, GMC Sierra, Cadillac Escalade, Escalade EXT and Escalade ESV. This was not an official recall, but an option to owners of these cars provided in a class action lawsuit. The repairs are done under a special coverage adjustment made to cover these repairs under the warranty for defective parts.
Vehicles that have the issues with speedometers can show a variety of issues from incorrect display to the entire panel ceasing to function. The coverage for the replacement can vary depending on the age or mileage of the vehicle. Any of the affected vehicles that are less than 7 years from their manufacture date or has less than 70,000 miles on it can get the piece replaced totally for free. If the vehicle has between 70,001 miles and 80,000 miles then the car owner will be responsible for any type of labor charges for the repair, but no charges for the replace part will be charged. Once an owner of the affected vehicles has gotten past the year or mileage requirements they are no longer covered under the coverage adjustment and must repair the piece on their own or pay out of pocket for the full charges.
