General Motors is recalling certain 2012-2013 Chevrolet Silverado HD and GMC Sierra HD pickups for a potential issue with the diesel fuel transfer pump, while Land Rover is recalling certain 2013-2014 Range Rover models for a potential issue with the side seat airbags.
2012-2013 Chevrolet Silverado HD and GMC Sierra HD
The Problem: Certain 2012-2013 Chevrolet Silverado HD and GMC Sierra HD pickups with the 6.6-liter Duramax turbodiesel V-8 and dual fuel tanks are being recalled because the transfer pump that moves fuel from the rear tank to the front tank could malfunction. If the transfer pump malfunctions, the fuel gauge could give a false reading that may result in a vehicle stall and an increased risk of a crash.
The Fix: The automaker will notify owners to take the affected vehicle to a dealer to inspect and, if necessary, replace the fuel transfer pump. Owners may contact General Motors at 1-800-462-8782 for more information on this recall, under campaign number 13420.
Number of Vehicles Potentially Affected: 9733 Chevrolet Silverado HD and GMC Sierra HD pickups from the 2012 and 2013 model years.
2013-2014 Range Rover
The Problem: Due to insufficient clearance, the Supplemental Restraint System (SRS) connector located in each of the front seats of certain 2013-2014 Range Rover vehicles may become disconnected. If the SRS connector becomes disconnected, the seat-mounted side airbag in the affected seat may not function, increasing risk of injury in a side impact.
The Fix: Beginning January 17, the automaker will start notifying owners to bring the affected vehicles to dealers to modify the area around the connector. Customers may contact Land Rover at 1-800-637-6837(Option 9) regarding recall number P037.
Number of Vehicles Potentially Affected: 3912 Range Rover vehicles from the 2013 and 2014 model years are being recalled.
