General Motors is recalling 33,838 of the following vehicles:
- Model year 2020 Buick Enclave, Cadillac XT4, XT5, Escalade, Escalade ESV, Chevrolet Suburban, Tahoe, Traverse, GMC Yukon, Yukon XL,
- Model year 2018-2021 Chevrolet Express, GMC Savana,
- Model year 2019-2020 Chevrolet Blazer, Silverado 1500, GMC Acadia, Sierra 1500, and
Certain Continental tires sold to the aftermarket for various model year 2018-2021 vehicles.
The tires were cured for too long during production.
Over cured tires may develop a break in the sidewall resulting in sudden air loss or a belt edge separation which could lead to a tread/belt loss.
Either condition can cause a loss of vehicle control, increasing the risk of a crash.
What to do
GM will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the tires, replacing them -- as necessary -- free of charge.
The recall is expected to begin April 12, 2021.
Owners may contact GMC customer service at (888) 988-7267, Buick customer service at (866) 608-8080, Chevrolet customer service at (800) 222-1020 or Cadillac customer service at (800) 458-8006. GM's number for this recall is N212329050.
