Recall: 2012 Chevrolet Express, Suburban; GMC Savana, Yukon XL Steering Gear, Pitman Shaft

Mar 26, 2012
The Problem: General Motors is recalling some 2012 Chevrolet Express and GMC Savana full-size vans, and Chevrolet Suburban and Yukon XL models for a faulty Pitman shaft and steering gear. The Pitman shaft may not have been adequately hardened during the manufacturing process and could fracture. If the shaft fractures, it could result in a loss of vehicle steering control, and potential injury.

Number of Vehicles Potentially Affected: 6159 units.
