General Motors is recalling 4,789 model year 2016-2017 Chevrolet Silverados; 1500 and 2016 Cadillac Escalades, Cadillac Escalade ESVs, Chevrolet Suburbans, Chevrolet Tahoes, GMC Sierras, GMC Yukons and GMC Yukon XLs.
The front upper control arms may have inadequate welds near the control arm bushing that may allow the control arm to separate from the bushing, compromising steering and increasing the risk of a crash.
What to do
GM will notify owners, and dealers will replace the left and right front upper control arms and realign the vehicle, free of charge. Parts are not currently available. Owners will be mailed an interim notification in early May 2016 and will be mailed a second notice when remedy parts are available. Until the repairs have been made, owners are advised not to drive their vehicles.
Owners may contact Chevrolet customer service at 1-800-222-1020, Cadillac customer service at 1-800-458-8006, or GMC customer service at 1-800-462-8782. GM's number for this recall is 42190.
