Approximately 500 model-year 2020 Cadillac Escalade and Escalade ESV SUVs; Chevrolet Camaro coupes, Silverado 1500 pickup trucks, Suburban and Tahoe SUVs; GMC Sierra 1500 pickup trucks, and Yukon and Yukon XL SUVs are being recalled because the fuel pump may be missing a pressure regulator, allowing for over-pressurization of the fuel system. Over-pressurization can crack the fuel pump and cause leaks, increasing the risk of a fire in the presence of an ignition source.
Cadillac, Chevrolet and GMC manufacturer GM will begin notifying owners on Jan. 6. Owners can call Cadillac at 800-333-4223, Chevrolet at 800-222-1020, GM at 888-988-7267 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 to learn more.
To fix the problem, dealers will replace the fuel pump.
Vehicle manufacturers are legally required to repair any recalled issues or replace the defective part for free under the Highway Safety Act of 1970. If the dealership refuses to fix the problem or attempts to charge you for the repair, contact the manufacturer immediately.
