General Motors Recalls 83,572 Trucks And SUVs For Ignition Switch Problems

General Motors’ Recallapalooza of 2014 now extends into 2015, with the company announcing yet another batch of vehicles recalled due to a possible ignition switch defect. Yes, the defect that caused cars to abruptly lose power and has caused 42 deaths that we know of. GM has recalled 83,572 Chevrolet, GMC, and Cadillac trucks and SUVs, but says that only about 500 of them potentially have the ignition lock defect. They just don’t know which ones.

Here’s the list of affected models. Model year info for each vehicle wasn’t included, but we’ll add it as soon as we find it:

  • Chevrolet Silverado
  • Chevrolet Avalanche
  • Chevrolet Tahoe
  • Chevrolet Suburban
  • GMC Sierra
  • GMC Yukon
  • GMC Yukon XL
  • Cadillac Escalade
  • Cadillac Escalade ESV
  • Cadillac Escalade EXT

Vehicles from 2011 and 2012 were affected, but cars from model years 2007 to 2014 could have been repaired with defective parts, and must be checked as well.
