GM Recalls Nearly 36,000 Vehicles for TPMS Problems

The 2012 Chevrolet Equinox and GMC Terrain may have defective and malfunctioning tire pressure monitoring systems

General Motors Co.is recalling about 36,000 Chevrolet Equinox and GMC Terrain vehicles for defective and malfunctioning tire pressure monitoring systems.

Vehicles manufactured from July 18, 2011 through September 6th, 2011, have a tire pressure monitoring system that may fail to alert a driver when the vehicle’s tire pressure is at the proper level of underinflation. As required by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the warning lights must come on when the pressure in a tire is 25% below the vehicle manufacturer’s recommended cold tire pressure.
The defect was discovered by a GM customer using OnStar and noticed that his monthly vehicle status report did not provide a tire pressure reading.
GM will recalibrate the tire pressure monitoring system free or charge.
If you drive a Chevrolet Equinox or a GMC Terrain manufactured from July 18, 2011-September 6, 2011, please take your vehicle to your local GM dealer and have your TPMS checked for defects, updated, and recalibrated.
Maintaining proper tire pressure helps your tires last longer, reduces fuel consumption, reduces CO2 emissions, and most of all, is extremely important for driver and passenger safety.
