General Motors is recalling 23,164 model-year 2021-2022 Chevrolet Equinox and 2022 GMC Terrain vehicles due to a fuel pump issue. The fuel pump module may not consistently provide sufficient fuel to the engine, resulting in an engine stall. An engine stall increases the risk of a crash.
Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed on March 3, 2023. Owners may contact Chevrolet customer service at 800-222-1020, GMC customer service at 800-462-8782, or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 to learn more.
To resolve the issue, dealers will replace the fuel pump module.
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.
