General Motors is recalling 214 2016- and 2017-model year Chevrolet Suburban HD SUVs because they were assembled with a convex right-hand outside mirror instead of a non-convex (flat) right-hand outside mirror.

The vehicles fail to comply with all federal safety standards as a result of the problem, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

“If equipped with the incorrect right-side rear-view mirror, the driver may misjudge the distance of other vehicles, increasing the risk of a crash,” NHTSA said on its website.

GM dealers will replace the convex mirror with a non-convex mirror and provide a new page to the owner’s manual with the customer notification letter. There will be no charge for this service.

Vehicle owners can reach GM customer service at (800) 222-1020. GM's number for this recall is 17017.
