So much for more recalls from GM being just a possibility. The American automaker has announced four more recalls that affects 428,211 vehicles in the U.S.

The first recall almost comes as no surprise considering the recent stop-sale order on the Chevrolet Cruze. A total of 29,019 Chevrolet Cruze sedans from the 2013-2014 model year are being recalled to replace the driver’s side air bag inflator. An additional 4,066 units are affected in Canada according to GM. The American automaker is aware of one injury related to the airbag issue.

The next recall affects 392,459 full-size pickup trucks and SUVs in the U.S. and 53,607 in Canada. An additional 20,874 units are affected in other markets worldwide and include the 2014-2015 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra, the 2015 Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban and the 2015 GMC Yukon and Yukon XL. According to the American automaker, the affected vehicles have a transfer case that may electronically switch to neutral without input from the driver. As a result, the vehicle could roll away if the parking brake is not set or no power will go to the wheels if the vehicle is in motion. No crashes or injuries related to this issue have been reported.

Affected 4,794 2013-2014 model year Chevrolet Caprice police cars and 2014 Chevrolet SS sport sedans in the U.S., GM will inspect and replace the windshield wiper module assembly due to the motor gear teeth becoming stripped. GM is not aware of any injuries or crashes related to this issue.

Dealers will replace the two rear shock absorbers in 1,939 Corvettes from the 2014 model year in the U.S. with the FE1 or FE3 suspension in order to repair a possibly insufficient weld in the rear shocks. In addition, 33 vehicles in Canada are affected along with 82 others that were exported. No injuries or crashes related to the issue have been reported.

It actually makes me want to buy future GM product. I think they are learning their lesson and won't be as careless in the future.

I honestly cannot see this as being careless. 1 Injury? No injuries? No problems??? What is going on here??? Most manufacturers have to have a dozen fatalities on their car before they take action!!!

It's not like they keep repeating the same errors either. Some cars it's a weld, others an airbag, and some an axleshaft. What can ya do? Stuff is manufactured all over the place. You're going to get that lazy POS welder getting paid crap that does a bad job welding or a robot programmed incorrectly for the same reasons. It happens; if you want a car you have to accept that crap isn't perfect. ****, NASA has strict controls and still manages to jack stuff up.

Don't know what GM's welders make but the welder at our local ship yard make $40+/hr. If that's crap money then I don't know what good money is

Smh. Careless in the way they handled recalls in general. Waiting too long, etc... That's what I meant!! I know all cars at some point risk being recalled. I'm just glad they are being pro active!!

First, we need to all understand that GM does not manufacture every single part that goes into their vehicles. They have vendors/sub- contractors that produce most of the components that go into their vehicle. Yes, they are responsible and I agree with iTZ SADISTIK - its good that they are taking care of business. I work in the aviation industry and "quality escapes" from a vendor happens all the time, it is just not has publicized.

The welds are all done by automation which means they are done by a robot someone types in the programs and the robot does the work.
