PhotoGeneral Motors is recalling 214 model year 2016-2017 Chevrolet Suburban HD vehicles.

The vehicles were assembled with a convex right-hand outside mirror, instead of with a non-convex (flat) right-hand outside mirror.

As such, they vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 111, "Rearview Mirrors."

If equipped with the incorrect right-side rear-view mirror, the driver may misjudge the distance of other vehicles, increasing the risk of a crash.

What to do

GM will notify owners, and dealers will replace the convex mirror with a non-convex mirror and add a new page to the owner's manual with the customer notification letter, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule.

Owners may contact GM customer service at 1-800-222-1020. GM's number for this recall is 17017.
