The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) regularly announces vehicle safety car recalls in an effort to inform and urge owners to get problems repaired quickly.  

In the United States, safety car recalls must be performed at no charge to the customer.  Car manufacturers are required by law to mail notices of car recalls to owners and dealers.

Notices get lost in the mail or discarded as junk mail.  Even after these attempts to notify customers, only 72% of owners affected by safety issue car recalls have the recall work completed. Chevrolet Suburban Recalls

Car Accident Advice often obtains recall notices before dealers and owners.  The NHTSA recommends that you wait for the mailed bulletin to arrive before requesting the work to be done.    However, you can ask your Chevrolet Suburban recalls dealer when the next recall update notice is expected at their shop.

Summary
On certain sport utility vehicles, during a 30 degree left angle frontal impact of sufficient severity, a tear could develop in the mid-frame cross member at its attachment to the left frame rail. If the mid-frame cross member tears during frontal impact and produces a sharp edge, contact of the sharp edge with the fuel tank could result in a puncture of the fuel tank and possible fuel leakage. Fuel leakage, in the presence of an ignition source, could result in a fire.

Remedy:
Dealers will install a fuel tank shield. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification is expected to begin during February 2003. Owners may contact Chevrolet at 1-800-222-1020, or GMC at 1-800-462-8782.
