Summary
General Motors is recalling certain model year 2011 Chevrolet express and GMC savana vehicles for failing to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard no. 135, "passenger car brake systems." Some of these vehicles may have been built with a clearance condition in which the right rear brake hose may contact the tire or wheel rim. If the brake hose repeatedly contacts the tire or wheel rim, a hole could be worn in the brake hose.
Actions
Dealers will secure the right rear brake hose to ensure sufficient clearance. This service will be performed free of charge. The safety recall began on May 13, 2011. Owners may contact Chevrolet at 1-800-630-2438, GMC at 1-866-996-9463 or www.gmownercenter.com.
