GM is recalling more than 285,000 model-year 2021 Buick Envision SUVs; Cadillac CT4 and CT5 sedans, and Escalade and Escalade ESV SUVs; Chevrolet Corvette sports cars, and Tahoe and Suburban SUVs; and GMC Yukon and Yukon XL SUVs due to a faulty airbag warning light. The software-related issue could cause the airbag light to illuminate inconsistently and fail to notify the driver of an actual problem, increasing the risk of injury.
Buick, Cadillac, and Chevrolet manufacturer GM will begin notifying owners on July 19. Owners can call Buick at 800-521-7300, Cadillac at 800-333-4223, Chevrolet at 800-630-2438, or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 to learn more.
To resolve the issue, dealers will update the software in the communications gateway 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.
