Update: 2019-2020 Chevy Silverado Recalled for Driveshaft Problem, Crash Risk

General Motors is recalling certain 2019-2020 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 trucks which were sold with driveshaft joints that may not have been properly welded. This problem may cause the driveshaft to separate while the vehicle is moving, leading to a loss of propulsion, increasing the risk of a crash. This recall began in December 2020.

What’s the Problem?

According to a Recall Notice from the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), this recall affects:

  • 2007-2008 Chevrolet Silverado 2500
  • 2007-2008 Chevrolet Silverado 3500
  • 2007-2008 GMC Sierra 2500
  • 2007-2008 GMC Sierra 3500

These trucks are equipped with non-desiccated, passenger frontal airbag inflators containing phase-stabilized ammonium nitrate (PSAN), a propellant that may cause the airbags to explode unexpectedly, NHTSA said. An inflator explosion may result in sharp metal fragments striking the front passenger or other occupants resulting in severe personal injury, including death.

If you own a Chevrolet Silverado or GMC Sierra Truck that is affected by this recall, you should take it to your Chevy dealer for a free replacement front passenger airbag inflator. This recall began on Feb. 11, 2020.

Chevy Silverado Vacuum Pump Recall

GM on Nov. 11, 2020, initiated a recall for 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 pickup trucks which were equipped with a potentially defective mechanical vacuum pump that can decrease output over time. A decrease in brake assist can increase the brake pedal effort and distance required to stop the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash, according to the NHTSA. GM’s number for this recall is N202300860.

Silverado Hood Latch Striker Recall

GM is recalling the 2020 Chevrolet Silverado 2500 and 3500, and GMC Sierra 2500 and 3500 trucks, over concerns that the hood-latch striker wires may not have been properly heat-treated, potentially causing them to fracture, according to the NHTSA. If a striker wire fractures, the hood may open unexpectedly while driving, increasing the risk of a crash. This recall began on April 26, 2020.
