      General Motors recalls model year 2014-2016 Chevrolet SS vehicles

      The vehicle may lose electric power steering assist

      General Motors is recalling 6,204 model year 2014-2016 Chevrolet SS vehicles.

      Corrosion of the connector between the electric power steering module and the torque sensor connector may cause a loss of electric power steering assist.

      A greater steering effort would be needed to control the vehicle if power steering is lost, increasing the risk of a crash.

      What to do

      GM will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the steering gear assembly, replacing it as necessary, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule.

      Owners may contact Chevrolet customer service at 1-800-222-1020. GM's number for this recall is 17248.

      BMW recalls 740 and 750-series vehicles

      The vehicles may have incorrect replacement left rear taillight assemblies

      BMW of North America is recalling 92 model year 2013-2015 740i, 740Li, 740Lxi, 750i, 750xi, 750Li and 750Lxi and 2014 ActiveHybrid 7 vehicles.  

      The recalled vehicles may have received incorrect replacement left rear taillight assemblies.  

      As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 108, "Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment." 

      Vehicles with the incorrect left rear lamp assemblies may be less conspicuous to other drivers, possibly increasing the risk of a crash.

      What to do

      BMW will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the vehicles and replace any incorrect left rear taillight assemblies, free of charge.  

      The recall is expected to begin August 7, 2017. Owners may contact BMW customer service at 1-800-525-7417.
