Among the two (2) recalls the NHTSA has announced this February comes news of the following:
General Motors LLC (“GM”) has recalled certain 2016-2017 Chevrolet Suburban HD vehicles. These vehicles were assembled with a convex right-hand outside mirror, instead of with a non-convex (flat) right-hand outside mirror. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Safety Standard (“FMVSS”) number 111, “Rearview Mirrors.”
According to the NHTSA, 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.
