General Motors has issued a recall for certain examples of the 2023 model year GMC Acadia crossover due to an issue related to noncompliant tire certification labels.
The problem: affected units of the GMC Acadia may not have a legible tire certification label. Located on the driver’s side B-pillar, this label should contain the correct tire-size information for the vehicle, which is critical for compliance with S4.3.3 of the Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 110, “Tire selection and rims and motor home / recreation vehicle trailer load carrying capacity information for motor vehicles with a GVWR of 4,536 kilograms (10,000 pounds) or less.”
The hazards: Using the incorrect tire size on a vehicle may increase the risk of a crash. The label should clearly display the correct tire size for the vehicle.
The fix: dealers are instructed to replace the vehicle tire certification label with a correct label that includes the correct tire sizing in clearly legible print. Technicians are instructed to remove the incorrect label before placing the correct one.
Affected components: tire certification label located around the driver’s side B-pillar.
