2014-'16 Chevrolet Express, GMC Savana Recalled for Tire-Pressure Monitoring System Problem


WASHINGTON General Motors is recalling 321 2014-'16 Chevrolet Express and GMC Savana incomplete vans because they were shipped to final-stage manufacturers without a tire-pressure monitoring system, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

"Without a TPMS, the driver would not be alerted if one or more tires became under-inflated," said NHTSA in its recall summary. "Driving with under-inflated tires increases the risk of a crash."

The affected vehicles are equipped with a 159-inch wheelbase and were built from August 2, 2013 to January 30, 2016.

A stop-delivery order was issued on March 30 to dealers.

A GM spokesman did not respond immediately to a query from Edmunds asking if there are any accidents or injuries linked to the recall.

Chevrolet dealers and GMC dealers will install the hardware and software necessary to equip the vehicles with a tire-pressure monitoring system. A date has not been set for the recall.

Owners can contact Chevrolet customer service at 1-800-222-1020 or GMC customer service at 1-800-462-8782.

Edmunds says: Owners of these vehicles should expect to receive an official recall notice within 60 days, according to federal regulations. If you have an immediate concern, you should contact your dealer now.
