Involved vehicles are marked “open” on the Investigate Vehicle History screen in GM Global Warranty Management system. This site should always be checked to confirm vehicle involvement prior to beginning any required inspections and/or repairs.

Condition General Motors has decided that a defect, which relates to motor vehicle safety, exists in certain 2013-2016 model year Cadillac ATS, 2014-2016 Cadillac CTS, and 2016-2017 Chevrolet Camaro vehicles, registered or previously registered in the Canadian provinces of New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Newfoundland and Labrador, Prince Edward Island, Ontario, or Quebec that may have a condition in which the power steering gear motor could separate from the steering gear housing due to corrosion of the attaching bolts. If the motor separates, power steering assist is lost or reduced, steering control can be maintained but would require an increased effort as the system will revert to manual steering.
Correction Dealers will replace the bolts that attach the electric power steering motor to the steering gear and add a protective wax coating to each bolt and the seam around the electric power steering motor. If the bolts cannot be removed due to corrosion the steering gear will be replaced.

Condition
  • Some Takata airbag inflators are made with non-desiccated Phase Stabilised Ammonium Nitrate (PSAN) as a propellant. As it gets older, a combination of high temperatures and humidity can cause the airbag inflator propellant to degrade.
  • If the vehicle is involved in a collision, the airbag can go off with too much explosive force causing sharp metal fragments to shoot out and kill or seriously injure people in the vehicle.
Correction GM Holden dealers will replace the driver’s side frontal airbag module assembly.
