Default Recall Alert: 2012 Chevrolet Equinox and 2012 GMC Terrain

The recall is on 2012+ GMC Terrain's. The tire pressure monitoring system doesn’t meet federal standards, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

I have yet to see a press release or an official report from GM, if I find it I'll post it.

From kicking tires....

GM is recalling 33,964 Chevrolet Equinox and GMC Terrain SUVs from the 2012 model year because the tire pressure monitoring system doesn’t meet federal standards, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration. The recall affects Equinoxes and Terrains built from July 18 through Sept. 6. Your car’s build date can be found on a sticker affixed to the driver-side doorjamb.

The 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 the recalled SUVs, the warning light won’t illuminate until the tire pressure is more than 25% below the recommended cold tire pressure. An underflated tire can cause tire overloading and overheating, leading to a blowout and possible crash. Underinflated tires also can result in premature or irregular wear, poor handling and poor fuel economy.


The recall is expected to being this month. GM dealers will update the body control module free of charge. For more info, affected owners can call Chevrolet at 800-630-2438 begin_of_the_skype_highlighting 800-630-2438 end_of_the_skype_highlighting, GMC at 866-996-9463 begin_of_the_skype_highlighting 866-996-9463 end_of_the_skype_highlighting or NHTSA’s safety hotline at 888-327-4236 begin_of_the_skype_highlighting 888-327-4236 end_of_the_skype_highlighting.

thanks for the heads up, i have a family member that just got their 2012 Terrain, will pass on the recall notice to them

for most of Canada & USA when it gets to this time of the year and months beyond it's really important to keep track of your tire pressure. wouldn't be fun driving in the snow with tires that don't grip as well as they should
