RECALL Subject : Upper Control Arms May Have Insufficient Welds

Report Receipt Date: APR 28, 2016
NHTSA Campaign Number: 16V256000
Component(s): SUSPENSION
Potential Number of Units Affected: 4,789


Manufacturer: General Motors LLC

SUMMARY:
General Motors LLC (GM) is recalling certain model year 2016-2017 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and 2016 Cadillac Escalade, Cadillac Escalade ESV, Chevrolet Suburban, Chevrolet Tahoe, GMC Sierra, GMC Yukon and GMC Yukon XL vehicles. The front upper control arms may have inadequate welds near the control arm bushing.

Inadequate welds may allow the control arm to separate from the bushing, compromising steering and increasing the risk of a crash.
REMEDY:

Owners will be mailed an interim notification in early May 2016 and will be mailed a second notice when remedy parts are available. Until the repairs have been made, owners are advised not to drive their vehicles. Owners may contact Chevrolet customer service at 1-800-222-1020, Cadillac customer service at 1-800-458-8006, or GMC customer service at 1-800-462-8782. GM's number for this recall is 42190.
