General Motors Corporation has announced the recall of almost 7,000 2011 pickup trucks. The vehicles included in this safety recall are the 2011 Chevrolet Colorado and the GMC Canyon, both which come equipped with a 4-speed automatic transmission and either the 2.9-liter 4 cylinder engine or the 3.7 liter 5-cylinder engine. GM is recalling these trucks as the shift level selector shows a driver the vehicle is actually in park when it may actually be in gear.
Additionally, GM has announced the recall of 730 sport utility vehicles (SUVs) having problem with their steering system. The vehicles included in this recall are the following: 2011 Cadillac Escalade; 2011 Cadillac Escalade ESV; 2011 Chevy Silverado; 2011 Chevy Suburban; 2011 Chevy Tahoe; 2011 GMC Sierra; 2011 GMC Yukon; and 2011 GMC Yukon XL. General Motors has stated that the intermediate steering shaft bolts on these SUVs were not properly tightened, could cause steering problems.
