Following the ignition switch recall, General Motors’ CEO Mary Barra requested a comprehensive internal safety review, which resulted in three separate recalls involving U.S. production and sales of roughly 1.54 million vehicles. Affected vehicles include:
- 303,000 Chevrolet Express and GMC Savana full-size vans from the 2009-2014 model years with gross vehicle weight under 10,000 pounds. More details on this recall here.
- 63,900 Cadillac XTS full-size sedans from the 2013 and 2014 model years. More details on this recall here.
- 1.18 million Buick Enclave and GMC Acadia CUVs from the 2008-2013 model years, Chevrolet Traverse from the 2009-2013 model years, and Saturn Outlook from the 2008-2010 model years. More details on this recall here.
“I asked our team to redouble our efforts on our pending product reviews, bring them forward and resolve them quickly,” said Barra. “That is what today’s GM is all about.”
As a result of the recall, GM expects to take a charge of approximately $300 million in the first quarter, mostly for the cost associated in repairing the safety actions announced today as well as the previously-announced ignition switch recall, for which the automaker is currently under investigation by the NHTSA.
“Today’s announcement underscores the focus we’re putting on the safety and peace of mind of our customers. We are conducting an intense review of our internal processes and will have more developments to announce as we move forward,” Barra said.
