2012 Chevrolet Equinox TIRES:PRESSURE MONITORING AND REGULATING SYSTEMS NHTSA Campaign #11V511000
Summary: General Motors (GM) is recalling certain model year 2012 Chevrolet Equinox and GMC terrain vehicles, manufactured from July 18, 2011, through September 6, 2011, for failing to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard number 138, "tire pressure monitoring system" (TPMS). The tire pressure monitoring system is designed to illuminate the tire pressure warning light when the pressure in a tire is 25% below the recommended cold tire pressure. On these vehicles, the light will not illuminate until the tire pressure is more than 25% below the recommended cold tire pressure.
Consequence: Underinflated tires can result in tire overloading and overheating, which could lead to a blowout and possible crash. The resulting crash could cause serious injury. Underinflated tires can also result in premature or irregular wear, poor handling, and poor fuel economy.
Actions: GM dealers will update the body control module free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin on or about November 9, 2011. Owners may contact Chevrolet at 1-800-630-2438 and GMC at 1-866-996-9463. For detailed information & supporting documents, see the official NHTSA page concerning recall #11V511000 »
