Report Receipt Date:
NHTSA Campaign:
01V283
Summary:
Some sport utility vehicles were built with a range shift collar in the transmission transfer case that contains cracks. This condition could result in a complete fracture of the range shift collar and subsequent loss of vehicle forward and reverse gears, and the inability to maintain "Park" position. Among other things, this increases the risk of a vehicle crash resulting from unintended movement of a parked vehicle.
Consequence:
Remedy:
Dealers will replace the transfer cases and update the control module calibration. The manufacturer reported that owner notification was to begin during October 2001. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Chevrolet at 1-800-222-1020 or GMC at 1-800-462-8782.

NHTSA Campaign:
01V334
Summary:
On certain sport utility vehicles equipped with 4-wheel drive, the calibration of the transfer case control module could cause insufficient high-speed gear engagement. If the gear is not engaged, the vehicle can roll when the transmission is in "park," and a crash could result without warning.
Consequence:
Remedy:
Dealers will update the transfer case control module calibration to increase gear engagement. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began Nov. 6, 2001. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Chevrolet at 1-800-222-1020 or GMC at 1-800-462-8782.

Report Receipt Date:
NHTSA Campaign:
02V222
Summary:
Certain passenger cars, minivans, and sport utility vehicles have an air bag inflator on the driver's side that could fracture at a weld during a deployment. Pieces of the inflator could strike and injure vehicle occupants, and the air bag cushion would not inflate fully, reducing the capability of the bag to protect the driver.
Consequence:
Remedy:
Dealers will inspect and replace, if necessary, the air bag module assembly on the driver's side. The manufacturer reported that owner notification was expected to begin during September 2002. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Buick at 1-800-521-7300, Cadillac at 1-800-458-8006, Chevrolet at 1-800-222-1020, GMC at 1-800-462-8782, Oldsmobile at 1-800-442-6537, or Pontiac at 1-800-762-2737.
Recall
Report Receipt Date:
NHTSA Campaign:
01V126
Summary:
On certain sport utility vehicles, under certain circumstances, the front lower control arm brackets may fracture. This fracture could result in separation of the front lower control arm from the frame. A separation could result in loss of vehicle control, resulting in a crash.
Consequence:
Remedy:
Dealers will replace the left and right front lower control arm brackets. The manufacturer has reported owner notification began by telephone on April 4, 2001. A follow-up letter to consumers was mailed May 3, 2001. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Chevrolet at 1-800-222-1020.
Recall
Report Receipt Date:
NHTSA Campaign:
02V273
Summary:
Certain sport utility vehicles are missing welds on the rear floor plan. In a crash, missing welds could degrade performance of the third row seat and safety belt anchorage, and occupants could receive greater injuries.
Consequence:
Remedy:
Dealers will inspect the vehicle for missing welds. If missing welds are found, GM will exchange the vehicle for an equivalent vehicle or provide a refund of the purchase price. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began Oct. 4, 2002. Owners should contact Chevrolet at 1-800-222-1020 or GMC at 1-800-462-8782
Recall
Report Receipt Date:
NHTSA Campaign:
03V250
Summary:
Certain minivans, passenger cars, and sport utility vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 225, "Child Restraint Anchorage System." The owner's manual does not explain the meaning of the location symbols for the lower universal anchorage system.
Consequence:
Remedy:
Owners will be provided with a supplement for their owner's manual. It describes and shows the location symbols for the child restraint anchors that are located in the vehicle. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification is expected to begin during August 2003. Owners may contact Buick at 1-866-608-8080, Cadillac at 1-866-982-2339, Chevrolet at 1-800-630-2438, GMC at 1-800-996-9463, Pontiac at 1-800-620-7668, or Oldsmobile at 1-800-630-6537.
Recall
Report Receipt Date:
NHTSA Campaign:
02V121
Summary:
On certain sport utility vehicles, a fuel filter fitting can become disconnected. If this were to occur while attempting to start the engine, a no-start condition would result and fuel would be pumped out onto the ground. If the fitting becomes disconnected while the vehicle is in motion, the engine would stop due to inadequate fuel supply and cause a loss of power steering assist. If an ignition source were present, fuel leakage from a disconnected fuel filter fitting could result in a fire.
Consequence:
Remedy:
Dealers will replace the fuel filter quick connect retainers. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began May 20, 2002. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Chevrolet at 1-800-222-1020, GMC at 1-800-462-8782, or Oldsmobile at 1-800-442-6537.
