GM recalling more than 600,000 trucks and SUVs
A software error has caused General Motors to recall more than 600,000 four-wheel drive trucks and SUVs.
The Associated Press reports the automaker's recall includes 2014-2018 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, 2015-2020 Chevrolet Suburban, 2015-2020 Chevrolet Tahoe, 2014-2018 GMC Sierra 1500 and 2015-2020 GMC Yukon models.
While no accidents have been reported, according to the company, the software error could activate the brake system increasing the risk of a crash. GM says 653,370 vehicles around the world are included in the recall.
"Activation of the braking software is triggered by the failure of a wheel-speed sensor, leading to unintended braking on the opposite wheel. That would cause the vehicle to pull to one side, increasing the risk of a crash," the AP reported.
The risk of the crashes can be mitigated by keeping vehicles in two-wheel drive until repairs are made, the company said.
That risk can be eliminated by driving in two-wheel drive mode until the recall repair is made, GM said. The company will also reprogram the software for free.
