DETROIT — General Motors is recalling 117,651 vehicles, including the 2013-'14 Chevrolet Tahoe and Suburban SUVs, because a problem with the chassis-control system could lead to stalling, the automaker confirmed for Edmunds on Thursday.
The recall also includes the 2014 Buick Enclave, 2013-'14 Cadillac Escalade and Escalade ESV, 2014 Chevrolet Express, 2014 Chevrolet Silverado HD, 2014 Chevrolet Traverse, 2014 GMC Acadia, 2014 GMC Savana and 2014 GMC Sierra HD.
"The chassis-control module may have a manufacturing defect," said GM in a statement. "If present, metallic slivers in the chassis-control module could cause an electrical short within the module, resulting in the vehicle stalling or not starting."
GM said it is not aware of any crashes, injuries or fatalities linked to the recall. About 4,500 of these unsold vehicles are being held at U.S. dealerships and will not be delivered until repairs are made.
"About 1 percent of all vehicles recalled are believed to have the condition," it said.
GM said 97,540 vehicles are in the U.S.
Dealers will replace the chassis-control module when parts are available.
"We do not have a timeline on that," GM said.
Automotive News first reported the recall and said a stop-delivery notice was sent to dealers on Wednesday.
No information about the recall has been posted on the Web site of the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, which oversees vehicle safety in the U.S.

Edmunds says: Since dealers are waiting for parts, owners of these cars are in a holding pattern. But if you have an immediate concern, contact your dealer.
