General Motors is recalling 2,905 2018 Chevrolet Equinox and GMC Terrain SUVs and 2017-2018 GMC Acadia SUVs because of faulty driveshafts, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
In these vehicles, the right front intermediate driveshaft may fracture and separate while driving. The vehicle would then lose propulsion, increasing the risk of a crash, NHTSA said. Additionally, if the assembly separates while the vehicle is parked on a grade, the vehicle may roll away if the parking brake isn’t engaged.
GM dealers will replace the right front intermediate drive shaft assembly in these SUVs to fix the problem, NHTSA said. There will be no charge for this service.
Vehicle owners can reach GMC customer service at (800) 462-8782 or Chevrolet customer service at (800) 222-1020. GM’s number for this recall is 17329.
