GM stops delivery of 6,281 crossovers over pending Goodyear recall

Article by Christian Andrei, on January 24, 2015

General Motors has issued a stop-delivery order for 6,281 MY2015 Chevrolet Traverse, GMC Acadia and Buick Enclave crossovers due to a pending recall by to replace tires prone to cracking. Maker of those tires, Goodyear, has confirmed to Automotive News that it will recall around 48,500 of its 18-inch Fortera HL tires after finding "very small" cracks in the tread during routine testing.

Goodyear said it produced 32,100 Fortera HL tires for the GM crossovers and another 16,400 for the aftermarket. The tiremaker has also informed the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration over the recall. According to a Goodyear spokesman, the cracks in the tread do "not indicate a safety issue."

A spokesman for GM, meanwhile, said the issue "will eventually lead to a non-compliance recall by GM." He said that the crossovers account for 25,124 of the suspected tires. The rest of the possibly defective tires are aftermarket ones.

So far this year, GM has yet to issue a recall of its vehicles, unlike in 2014 when it called back a record 30.4 million vehicles across 84 safety campaigns.
